Building Your Dream Home in 2019 Is Affordable for First Home Buyers at North Harbour!

Our award-winning development (Queensland’s Best Residential Subdivision) is now home to over 1500 residents, many of them first home buyers, with more moving in every week to join our growing community of awesome people!

One of the main reasons our first home buying residents give when we ask them why they chose to build new at North Harbour, rather than buying established, is that building their first home has meant they can get exactly what they need from the start of their home owning journey.

There is no need to spend on renovations or competing against other buyers on price – just choose your affordable house and land package from the many on offer and get ready to move into the northside’s best new development. There are plenty of designs to choose from, as you’ll see from our Display Village of 33 homes, with a lot of exciting styles and layouts available. You can also custom build and work with your preferred builder to design your own home.

Residents Kelly and Justin built their first home at North Harbour. “We are both very particular with our tastes, we had certain items on our wish-list that could not be met by established homes within in our price range.”

Fellow first home buyers Tiarna and Zac have three children and found they could build their perfect family home at North Harbour. “Building your own home is every person’s dream and at North Harbour we could do that. We could customise our home to exactly what we wanted and at North Harbour it was affordable.”

Expat residents Rachel and Fergus looked in several areas on the northside and at a range of both land for sale and established homes before building their first Australian home at North Harbour. “We chose to build new as everywhere we looked that was established meant compromising on something, which we didn’t want to do.”

Ram and his family built for the same reason. “We chose to buy land, so we could custom build. The land size at North Harbour and the location are perfect for our needs.”

When you build brand new rather than buy established, you’re also getting brand new amenities included. North Harbour has its own fibre optic broadband network capable of speeds matching the fastest broadband in Australia of up to 100Mb per second from a broad range of internet service providers (speed depends on which package you choose). Each home has access to this highspeed broadband connection.

North harbour 2018 UDIA Winner

North Harbour has been named Best Residential Subdivision in Queensland, in the 2018 Urban Development Institute of Australia Qld Awards for Excellence. “This is a tremendous result not only for North Harbour but for the region,” said Project Director, Peter Lightbody.

UDIA Judges said North Harbour showed excellence in number of categories, including planning, community, sustainability, urban design and engineering and had distinguishing features such as the Parkland and Heritage Park which stood out for them.

Mr Lightbody said: “We are incredibly proud and happy to have won this award. The North Harbour team is working very hard to create the best residential community possible and to achieve recognition at this level is an incredible achievement for all concerned.

“We were commended by the judges for our provisions for the community including our amenities and high-quality landscaping, as well as our well-presented Display Village which is the largest on the northside.

We’d like to thank North Harbour community and our community partners. Without the support of our residents and everyone who works in and around North Harbour, none of what we’ve achieved would be possible.

“We’ve also been named as a finalist in the national UDIA awards and to even be in that space is an incredible achievement considering we welcomed our first residents only four years ago.” In a statement, the UDIA said: “The quality of submissions for the 2018 Awards for Excellence was outstanding. The Institute is exceptionally proud of all winners and congratulates North Harbour on being named as one of the best in Queensland’s development industry.”

The Urban Development Institute of Australia is the peak body representing the property development industry throughout Australia. The Institute is a not-for-profit industry body dedicated to the representation of Australia’s development industry and to win such a prestigious award at this high level is an extraordinary achievement for a development in its early stages.

Many first home buyers can be put off applying for the Grant as it is only for newly built homes. A great way to decide if this is for you is to make sure you visit as many homes as possible to get an idea of what you need – both display homes and existing older homes in some of the locations you think you’d like to live in. Have a good look at the benefits of each location, including local amenities such as transport, shopping, recreation and think about what size home you want, what kind of layout you need, and make a wish list which might include things like a butler’s pantry, a great outdoor area, or a shed or a pool.

Building a new home in an affordable masterplanned development like North Harbour is a great way to use the First Home Buyers Grant to its full potential. North Harbour ticks all the boxes for a great investment in your future – excellent location and local amenities, 1,000 acres of proposed open space and parklands and plenty of things to do including free local events such as sunrise yoga and parkrun.

Our Sales Team has helped many first home buyers achieve their dream of home ownership and is there to guide you through the process. We’re on site 7 days a week, 10am-5pm and we’re happy to answer any questions you have and walk you through the process step-by-step.
