Savvy buyers look to Hinterland for value



Developer QM Properties says an increasing number of families and first time buyers are living a 'bush to beach' lifestyle - choosing a home in the hinterland that gives them the best of both worlds.

The developer's Springbrook community in D'Aguilar is proving popular with purchasers looking for affordable acreage just 20 minutes from Caboolture and 45 minutes from the beach.

With a new sales centre due for completion in the coming weeks and a second display home expected to be finished by Christmas, QM Properties General Sales Manager Damien Ross is encouraging buyers to take a look at the community and consider a tree change.

"Savvy buyers are making a tree change to get more value for money, without losing the perks of being close to work or the waves," he said.

"Most first time buyers and parents work full time, so they are realising it doesn't make sense to pay top dollar to live close to the beach when you may only be able to get there on the weekend.

"By making the move to D'Aguilar, our residents at Springbrook can secure acreage land from $255,000 and build a large family home for around the same price you might pay for a smaller property or town house close to the coast.

"They enjoy their space and privacy during the week, along with an easy commute to Caboolture for work, and on the weekend they can jump in the car and be in the surf in 45 minutes.

"We have a magnificent acreage display home by DR Homes which is now open, and expect to have a second acreage display by DJ Roberts builders complete by Christmas, to give buyers an idea of the type of lifestyle they can expect here at Springbrook."

Mr Ross says some buyers are surprised at how well serviced the Sunshine Coast's smaller hinterland suburbs are.

"D'Aguilar only has about 1,000 residents but it has shops and schools just a few minutes away, and is only about one hour from Brisbane," he said.

"Locals don't need to leave the neighbourhood for plenty to see and do. D'Aguilar is surrounded by national parks with great walking tracks and there are family-run cafes nearby. 

"Springbrook also has its own walking trails that meander through parklands and link to a spring-fed lagoon, which is home to lots of wildlife. 

"It's a beautiful, close-knit community that really provides residents the best of everything the Sunshine Coast has to offer."

Springbrook's homesites range from 3000sqm to 3818sqm and are equipped with full pressure town water and natural gas, with some homesites already connected to the NBN network.
