First time investors Lucas Power and Allie Buxton are proving that you’re never too young to get ahead in the property game – if you find the perfect location.
The 21-year-olds purchased their first home together on a 375sqm block at Pebble Creek in the rapidly growing Logan suburb of South Maclean in May last year.
Affordability first lured the young couple to the area, but it was the combination of being close to nature, must-have suburb amenities and sense of community that inspired them to invest in a second property.
Lucas and Allie are currently building a four-bedroom home with Resi Design Homes on a 365 sqm block, just a street over from their first property.
Allie said their strategy was to rent out their first home soon after moving into the new one being built in Stage 2 in early April, but this was just the beginning of their property portfolio journey at Pebble Creek.
“We’re looking to purchase for a third time in one of the future releases,” she said.
“The area is really emerging, and we know that Pebble Creek is going to have a big future.
“It’s the perfect family location and you say hello and wave to everyone as you walk down the street.”
Allie said the combination of being close to nature and key infrastructure not only made Pebble Creek a great place to live but an ideal location to invest.
“We go to Pebble Creek Parklands all the time and there are shops and schools close by. It has everything you need,” she said.
“At the same time, you’re really close to nature with plenty of kangaroos and wildlife.
“This is everything a family would want.”
Nestled within the growing inland corridor between Brisbane and the Gold Coast, Pebble Creek is bordered to the north by Flagstone Creek and features five distinct lot types that cater for first-home buyers, established families and investors across all budgets.
Lucas said Pebble Creek had allowed them to make their property dreams come true earlier than expected.
“I’ve always wanted to own multiple properties and the price at Pebble Creek was really affordable,” he said.
“We were able to get in early and own our own home. Pebble Creek was ideal for us.
“We now have a foothold in the property market and we have more equity, which allows us to continue on our journey.”
The off-leash dog park area will form part of the jewel in crown for Pebble Creek Parklands – a multimillion-dollar park and activity hub in the heart of the community that will feature sport ovals, playgrounds, multi-use courts, a bicycle precinct, picnic areas and more.
The next stage at Pebble Creek will include 40 homesites ranging from 293m2 to 647m2 from $155,000* and will be released to the public in late-February.
Pebble Creek is located at Pebble Creek Way, South Maclean. The Sales Suite is open 10am to 4pm Saturday to Wednesday. Visit www.LivePebbleCreek.com.au
