Beaudesert Locals Crack The Code On The Property Market

Beaudesert locals Shane and Catharina Gillis have done what many first homeowners hope for, they’ve purchased their dream home with repayments below an average weekly rent.
Engaging with Philip Usher Constructions and The Total First Home Solutions teams, the Gillis family have found their dream family home at Banksia Green estate, with mortgage repayments from $341 per week for a house and land package.

Shane Gillis, 31, a labourer with Quickcell Technology Products, and his wife Catharina, 29, a console operator at 7/11, had always wanted to buy a forever home for their family of five, but hadn’t been able to until now.

Mrs Gillis said she was ecstatic about being able to afford their new home, having secured the biggest block on the street for their kids, even with room for a shed and pool.
“They’ve (Philip Usher Constructions and The Total First Home Solutions teams) helped us tremendously,” Mrs Gillis said.
“We didn’t want to rent any more, we wanted to have a forever home that would be ours.”

Mrs Gillis said the purchase has also given her family “peace of mind that this is our home” and they know their children are set up for the future.
Young families and prospective buyers have notoriously had difficulties entering the property ladder in the past, with large hurdles in place and high repayments, forcing them to opt for renting instead of buying.
Banksia Green estate was purposefully built in Beaudesert, an emerging community, giving families larger properties and a great lifestyle at an affordable price.

The generously sized properties at more than 700 square metres up to 1,420 square metres allow prospective owners to snatch up house and land lots nearly double the size of what’s available in Brisbane city.
The Gillis family said they knew they wanted to stay in Beaudesert, loving the area for its quality of life and being able to stay close to family.
“I wouldn’t give up this house in a million years. This one was meant to be,” Mrs Gillis said.

As for any advice, Mrs Gillis said any new home buyers should just “take a big breath and relax” as anything’s possible.
The Banksia Green estate has low barriers to entry for first home buyers.
“It’s much cheaper and bigger than Brisbane central property locations and the area is perfect for growing families,” Total First Home Solutions Sales Manager, Mark Jagger said. “Why pay rent when you can put that same money towards owning a home?”

These deals provide up to $55,000 worth of incentives, including the Kixstaart grant, Home Builder grant, QLD First Home Owner’s boost, plus the Stamp Duty exemption where applicable.
