$10,000 Grant Deadline Sparks Strong Demand at River Parks

THE end of the $10,000 Building Boost in April triggered strong demand for new homes in Townsville, with Devine’s River Park community at Kelso achieving $3.2 million in land sales.

River Parks’ latest release has been popular with buyers, thanks to the quality and affordability of homesites, with prices starting from just $138,900.

Devine Queensland General Manager Andrew Brimblecombe said River Parks’ April sales were very satisfying in the current market.

“We believe our strong sales were a direct result of River Parks’ excellent value for money in a very competitive market, particularly with the end of the $10,000 Building Boost on April 30,” he said.

“With home sites available from an affordable $138, 900, River Parks delivers a convenient location close to all amenities, quality home and land packages and attractive surroundings with plenty of open space to kick a ball.

“With limited blocks available in the latest release, we urge all potential buyers to arrange appointments with one of our consultants as soon as possible to ensure they can secure a homesite.”

Set on 72 hectares, River Parks will be home to approximately 1000 families surrounded by landscaping, promenades of trees, parklands, open spaces, walking and cycling tracks, and a proposed village and including shopping, cafe and childcare centre.
