Five packages, priced from $475,550 to $542,000, went on sale for low to middle income earners who had progressed their application to approved purchaser status under the government’s Territory Government’s Real Housing for Growth Plan.
Sold on a first in, first served basis, Jenna Hingston said she was delighted to be one of the successful buyers.
“It’s a dream come true. I couldn’t breathe and they (Urbex) were trying to ask me questions. I think I was in shock,” she said.
Ms Hingston, who’s always wanted to own her own home, said she seriously looked at buying a property for more than a year.
“I’m just really grateful. I missed out on the last housing release in February, which was disappointing.
“To be the first caller through this time and know that a brand new home will be mine makes it all worth it.”
Urbex General Manager Wayne Rex said the sales followed the recent success of the housing release at Johnston Ridge.
“Urbex is committed to providing a range of affordable home ownership opportunities for Territorians,” Mr Rex said.
“Our team has worked hard with government and local builders to deliver a range of quality house and land packages at affordable price points.”
The house and land packages included home designs by the Bendella Group, NIMM Constructions and The Total Group.
To be eligible for the government’s Real Housing for Growth Plan home buyer initiative, buyers must meet eligibility criteria including income limits and have finance approval in-principle.
Zuccoli is a master planned community developed by Urbex in partnersip with the Northern Territory’s Land Development Corporation.
