Yesterday we met up with some people from the forum. It was a huge turn out with lots of people stopping in to introduce themselves. There was a great mix of lovely people from all different walks of life. It was great to see so many young people.
We had some food, chatted about dodgy builders and bonded over what is considered the Bunya rite of passage- getting your house approved by the DRP!
I meant to get a group photo but forgot about it until half way through when lots of people had left. It will have to be next time.
We’re glad to see the developer has installed some great facilities such as BBQs, covered picnic areas and play equipment. They’ve also installed some art here and there. Although, I’m not entirely convinced the art is anything to be excited about. This guy looks downright evil.
Some blocks of land from the last release (which was in May) went back into the sales pool yesterday. I was surprised to see some of the price increases. Some increases were only $5,000, but if you want a block around 600 m2 facing one of the reserves you’re now looking at about $395,000, up from $350,000 in May. A block of similar size to ours is now costing somewhere between $340,000 and $380,000 depending on its position and shape. So we’re glad we got in when we did because we thought $315,000 was a stretch of the budget!
