First home owners leap into Buderim Forest

Two sisters have taken the plunge into the Sunshine Coast property market with the purchase of a brand new home within the tranquil Buderim Forest community at Forest Glen. Lauren and Brooke Cullen believe the three bedroom double story home is an ideal investment because of the design and quality of the home and the premium location close to local amenity.

“Lauren and I really love the architectural design of the home, we have a spacious bedroom each, separate living areas, two bathrooms and a study along with a spare room for guests or we can rent it out to a friend or a University student.

“We’ve kept an eye on the local property market and most of the new developments are much larger master planned communities whereas Buderim Forest is smaller and more boutique in nature. We both felt this was a great opportunity to get into the market with the bonus of the First Home Owners grant before home ownership becomes unachievable for us.

“The location is also ideal, we have forest as a backdrop and parklands at the front of the home while a number of local shops and Kunara village is within walking distance. Buderim’s restaurants, cafes, supermarkets and boutiques are just five minutes away while I can get to work at Currimundi within 15 minutes and it takes Lauren no time at all to get to University for her studies,” Brooke said.

Vantage Homes sales consultant Ian Rowe said the response to Buderim Forest has been very positive with 50% of stage one already sold.

“We’ve attracted interest from a range of buyers keen to secure a high quality, low maintenance freehold home in a secluded neighbourhood. First homeowners like Brooke and Lauren really enjoy the easy access to everything the Coast has to offer while families appreciate being close to a number of great schools and the University and retirees like that it’s a boutique development hidden in a tropical rainforest sanctuary,” he said.

Ian said the vast majority of homes in the first stage back onto the natural forest with a number offering large 12 x 7.5m outdoor area which is suitable for a garden, pool, spa or even a shed.

Buderim Forest is located at 5 Owen Creek Road Forest Glen. For more information, please call Ian Rowe on 1300 720 160 or visit
