Geelong’s new-home buyers have become more discerning and sharper about what they buy, says industry leader Villawood Properties.
A tighter market, stricter lending, titling delays and a quality product have all become front of mind with buyers keener than ever to ensure they get better bang for the buck.
Villawood Properties, presently selling a market-leading 40 per cent of land at the burgeoning Armstrong growth corridor between Geelong and Torquay, is offering the best on all fronts.
It is also offering premium lots at the prestigious Wandana community above Highton as well as the best of town and country in its new Coridale community in Lara’s booming western precinct.
“Enquiry is very strong across all Villawood Geelong projects, with campers being at most of Armstrong’s releases,” a spokesperson for Villawood said.
“Demand for Wandana is high due to its exclusive location and our new Coridale project, without any formal marketing campaign launch, is seeing very strong numbers due to interest in Lara’s new precinct structure plan.”
Villawood’s offers are in stark contrast to those of other developers across the Geelong region.
Others are facing title delays up to 27 months where Villawood’s staged releases have kept titling to around 12 months.
Others are adding to land prices by offering builders kickbacks to recommend their developments. Villawood offers no such kickbacks, instead providing dedicated lots to its builder partners.
Villawood sets aside lots for care workers in the community, with a $10,000 price cut as well, helping ensure they have access to the market.
Villawood discourages investment speculators, to guard against price hikes and to help safeguard the integrity of its family-oriented communities.
Importantly, Villawood offers the best quality communities – with industry awards to prove it. Its Amstrong Mount Duneed holds the current Urban Development Institute of Australia’s Best Masterplanned Community title.
When it comes to building quality, forever-home communities, Villawood is simply the best.
Its parks and trails, its playgrounds and residents clubs, its environmental, heritage and its sustainability initiatives all dovetail into creating communities where families can live and grow in healthy, active surroundings.
For Villawood, it’s all about community, care, quality and affordability.
