Like all things in life, the ‘Great Australian Dream’ has evolved to the point where the dream is less about the big house and quarter acre block, and more about the culture, lifestyle and a sense of community.
Today, homes come in all shapes and sizes and masterplanned communities such as those designed by Frasers Property incorporate many types in order to cater for a wide variety of buyers, including first home buyers. We’re also focused on creating homes and communities that provide a high level of liveability and amenity in order to create places that work for the people that live there; places you’ll be proud to call home.
So what are the options, and which one is right for you?
First, there is the option of a large detached or free-standing house that offers generous living spaces and your own private backyard with a garage or carport.
Or you might like to consider a smaller home for your first purchase such as a terrace or townhome. While these homes are attached, on the inside you’ll still find spacious open plan layouts with private alfresco areas and garden courtyards. Being spread over two or three levels, most townhomes offer flexible living spaces and more room to grow.
But the best part? These homes are easy to maintain.
Another home option - one that is becoming increasingly popular with many Australians – is an apartment.
Often situated in prime, central locations surrounded by parks, gardens, and close to public transport options, shops and restaurants, it’s no wonder the appeal of apartment living is on the rise.
They can often incorporate gyms, pools and entertainment areas, all designed to create better communities for residents, with a focus on wellness, belonging and quality of life.
