Welcome to this week’s edition of the North Harbour blog. It’s been an extremely hectic week for the North Harbour team with the launch of Stage 10, The Hampton Release.
We launched officially yesterday and had an extremely busy day in the sales office with numerous keen new buyers who visited us on their hunt for houses for sale in Burpengary. Many of our visitors are first home buyers, looking to purchase their perfect place in the fast growing corridor between north Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast (often called the Northern Growth Corridor).
As of July 2016, the First Home Buyers Grant increased to a whopping $20,000. Provided by the State Government, the First Home Buyers Grant is a one-off financial grant only available to those buying their first home in Australia who meet all the eligibility criteria.
Eligible recipients must be:
– At least 18 years old
– Purchasing a new property under $750,000
– An Australian Citizen or permanent resident
– Receiving the grant for the first time
For a full list of the terms and conditions associated with the First Home Owners’ Grant please visit the website here.
Building a new home in a masterplanned development like North Harbour is a great way to use the First Home Buyers Grant to its full potential. North Harbour is a great place to choose when considering buying your first home for reasons we have elaborated on previously – namely, the longevity of the project, location, experience of the developers and first-class amenities.

The fact is that the northside of Brisbane is growing at a rapid rate. With an array of new global stores such as IKEA moving into North Lakes (just 10-15 minutes from North Harbour) by the end of the year, a new university campus arriving in 2020 at Petrie (20-25 minutes away) and road and transport upgrades happening all the time offering employment and excellent lifestyle amenities – the northside has become a very sought after location. North Harbour gives First Home Buyers an amazing opportunity to move into a brand new home in an excellent location rather than focussing on the older houses for sale in Burpengary East.
Why build? Well building your first home means you can get exactly what you need from the start of your home owning journey. No need to spend money on renovations or competing against other buyers – just choose your house and land package and get ready to move into the northside’s best new development. There’s lots of houses for sale to choose from, as you’ll see from our Display Village of 35 homes, with lots of exciting styles and layouts on offer. And when it comes to blocks our new release, Hampton, offers a variety of housing choices ranging from Premium Villa to Traditional family blocks with sizes ranging from 350m2 – 658m2.
We appreciate that buying your first home can be a difficult and overwhelming process so aim to make it as painless as possible for you! Our sales team is on site 7 days a week, 10am-5pm (excludling public holidays) and we’re happy to answer any questions you have. We have an awesome coffee machine and bottled water to restore you after you’ve viewed the many show homes on offer, there’s plenty of space to sit and discuss options, free Wifi and even a place for kids to play while you have a chat. We’ve also put together a special web page for First Home Buyers complete with mortgage calculator and house and land packages geared towards first home owners, here.
Our Display Village is home to 14 local and national builders, many of whom specialise in helping First Home Buyers climb onto the property ladder and get as high up as they can! One such builder is Integra Homes. The Pathfinder series offers no deposit house and land packages for first time buyers. As the team says, “Stop paying rent! Don’t wait years saving for your deposit when YOU can buy in now, at today’s prices, with no deposit!”
Integra has two homes on display at North Harbour, The Cox and The Wentworth, open every day 10am-5pm. You can view them here.
So many people have fallen in love with North Harbour and we have a strong community growing as Stages 1-8 of our residential releases have now sold out and many homes have finished construction. At last count we’ve sold over 300 blocks of land and over 60 families already call North Harbour home. Maybe you’ll be next?!
North Harbour Sales Office & Display Village is open seven days a week, 10am-5pm (excluding public holidays). For more information regarding our land and houses for sale at Burpengary or to make an appointment call Aidan on 5433 1111, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
