Real Estate in Burpengary

As we’ve mentioned – about a zillion times – our suburb of Burpengary East is consistently rated by housing experts as a very good place to purchase a home.

In fact, real estate at Burpengary was one of Domain Group Chief Economist Andrew Wilson’s top nine Real Estate suburb picks for 2017 where he stated that buyers could expect strong returns on investment and vendors could expect strong interest in their properties which is obviously great news for our residents who’ve chosen to call North Harbour home.

Mr Wilson chose Burpengary East as one of his top picks because of strong growth over the past few years, high sales, and high demand. Burpengary East also benefits from close access to the highway and the northside’s excellent amenities which makes it a particularly good location for first home buyers to choose.

In addition to the benefits that Burpengary East offers, our development is ticking all the boxes for liveability and affordability for first home buyers. Not only do we provide access to high-speed broadband internet, we also have reticulated gas to each home and a thriving community centred around our proposed 1000 acres of open space and parkland – something which is unique in South East Queensland.

North Harbour has welcomed many first home buyers keen to take advantage of the First Home Buyer’s Grant which is provided by the State Government towards building a new home. The Grant will remain at $20,000 until December and is only available to those buying their first home in Australia who meet all the eligibility criteria. More details can be found here.

So, if you’re looking for excellent value real estate in Burpengary East make sure you visit North Harbour – we have 35 Display Homes open 10am-5pm every day, showcasing the work of 14 local and national builders.

Kmart Hacks

Firstly – “what is a Kmart hack?” you may well ask. Well, a Kmart hack is buying something which is already pretty good from cheap n cheerful Kmart and repurposing it into something even more fabulous!

Since the new Kmart at Burpengary Plaza opened and with IKEA just 10-15 minutes away at North Lakes, we’ve been pretty impressed with what you can achieve by shopping locally with a very minimal spend. A hack can apply to pretty much any product which is repurposed whether it’s from Kmart, IKEA or even the dollar shop. There are literally thousands of websites, Blogs and Facebook pages showcasing how “cheap and nasty” has transformed into “gotta have it” – below are a few of our top picks. – my personal favourite is the veggie caddie as a vertical herb garden, genius! – if you have kids then this is a great place to find ways to save $$ on otherwise expensive kid items. Shower caddy to bottle holder? Mind. Blown.

The Huffington Post has combined Kmart hacks AND IKEA hacks to make one awesome interior design blog sensation. Loving the IKEA spice racks as bookshelves.

Homeware hacks are even on YouTube from bathroom makeovers to ways to repurpose wall hangings to bedside tables such as this one which also includes styling tips

If you’re looking for styling tips, make sure you pop into our see our Display Village, with our 35 Display Homes in Burpengary, you’re bound to pick up loads of great ideas! Good luck with your décor hacking endeavours, that’s it from us for this week – have a good one!
