First home buyers swarm to $190m Little Creek estate

FIRST home buyers are flocking to Gladstone's proposed $190 million Little Creek community.

Buyers have bought new homes in stages 15, 16, 17 and 20, taking sales at the Kirkwood estate to $69 million.

Villa World's Little Creek has recently seen first home buyers sign contracts on 15 new homes.

Villa World development manager Murray Simpson said the buying conditions for first home buyers in the current market were optimal.

The Zero Deposit Campaign is great because if you can afford to pay your mortgage, but don't have a deposit, Villa World with throw you a life line.

"We're witnessing an increase in first home buyer confidence due to lower interest rates and great incentives to buy, including the State Government's $15,000 Great Start grant," he said.

"Buyers have also been taking advantage of Villa World's popular Zero Deposit campaign, which allows buyers to purchase a modern, affordable new home and land package with no deposit.

Mr Simpson said Stage 17 home sites were in high demand and buyers were being urged to register their interest to avoid disappointment.

"Home and land packages at the community start from $499,900 while home sites start from $214,000 and range in size from 600sq m to 4590sq m," he said.

Mr Simpson said Little Creek recently completed a new $1 million park with a walking and running trail.

"The park is Little Creek's latest milestone and it's been great seeing the community enjoy the extra amenity. Features of the park include covered barbecue and eating areas, kick and throw areas, shaded picnic areas, hike and bike trails and shady relaxation areas with bench seating."
