The rising cost of inner-city property and the opportunity to call a larger, more spacious house “home” is increasingly luring buyers to acreage living. It’s fast becoming a popular choice for buyers willing to travel a few extra kilometres further out to get a lot more land, often to build their dream home.
“When you look at the acreage blocks you can get in areas like Jimboomba, the Lockyer Valley, Caboolture, Greenbank and even the coastal hinterland compared to what you get closer to the city, it really is fantastic value for money,” explained Shaun Wilson, Hallmark Homes’ Sales Manager. “Hallmark Homes have built great value homes on acreage blocks in all of these areas.”
And remember, as the city sprawl spreads, your acreage property will more than likely increase in value, especially if you’ve got a great acreage home design and work with the right acreage builders – so it’s usually a pretty good real estate investment too!
Acreage offers unique lifestyle benefits
Acreage buyers believe that the lifestyle is second to none. Often surrounded by beautiful scenery, bushland and breathtaking views, they enjoy a level of privacy, peace and space that simply can’t be replicated in the city. In most cases, excellent schools, shops and cafes are not that far away, so they get the best of both worlds.
How much work you do on an acreage property is up to you. Some people opt for ‘natural bush’, which requires minimal effort, while others choose to fully embrace the extra space and create beautiful gardens, a chook pen or a stable for horses – the list of options really is endless.
