Sales hit holiday high at Augustus

SUMMER holidays have brought a wave of sales to Villa World’s Augustus masterplanned residential community at Hervey Bay.

The annual Christmas and New Year influx of visitors to the picturesque Fraser Coast town has seen the 774-lot project secure 12 sales in January.

Villa World development manager Kevin Morse said Augustus was attracting a strong level of buyer interest and activity.

“Traditionally this is a busy time of year on the tourism front and that spills over into higher volumes of prospective buyers showing interest and, indeed, making the decision to buy,” Mr Morse said.

“The $10,000 Fraser Coast Building Grant and the recent extension of the State Government’s First Home Owner’s Grant has also played a part in ensuring this cohort of buyers remains energized.”

The government has extended the $20,000 First Home Owner’s Grant until June 30, 2018. 

“With prices for new homes starting at $350,000, this offers a significant leg-up into the property market for first home buyers,” Mr Morse said.

“We’re also seeing a number of retirees and lifestyle buyers making the move to Augustus,” he said.

Augustus has passed its half-way mark after achieving more than 400 sales since its launch in 2009. 

Located at the heart of Hervey Bay, Augustus offers a range of family-friendly features including community parklands and an enclosed dog park.

Augustus boasts a relaxed coastal lifestyle that is less than 1km from local shopping and medical facilities, with easy access to neighbouring beachside suburbs at Hervey Bay.

The development’s contemporary three and four-bedroom residences are designed for the modern-day entertainer and feature an extensive range of quality inclusions including stone kitchen bench tops, stainless steel appliances, NBN readiness and landscaping.

The Augustus display homes are located at 10 and 12 Murray Road, Hervey Bay and are open for inspection daily from 10am – 5pm.

Villa World, an ASX-listed developer, is one of Australia’s largest housing providers with more than 45,000 people calling a Villa World address home.
