It’s a catch-22: you’re splashing out hundreds of dollars each week on rent, knowing that it’s money down the drain, and all the while you’re thinking you’ll never be able to afford a home of your own anyway…
Well, not unless you check out the homes from Nicheliving.
Because we own the land we’re building on, and take care of the construction ourselves, we can offer brand new homes for a lot less than you might expect. Say you’re a couple earning $68,000 between you; to be able to buy a home for $360,000, you’d need to pay about $450 a week on your mortgage. That’s not a whole lot more than you’d pay on rent, but then where are you going to find a home for $360k these days?
Well, at Nicheliving, our homes start from $319,000.
Hold on; we’re one jump ahead of you again. Now you’re thinking that anything for that price you’ll have to compromise on quality, or at the very least live pretty far away from the city, where they don’t even have a train station or a school. Or shops.
Think again. Our panel of experts researches all of our developments extensively, so we only ever build in areas where there’s already infrastructure in place, where the CBD is still a convenient trip away, and where the value of the properties is expected to rise.
That’s the reason our Medina development recently took out the top prize in the Affordable category at the 2016 Urban Development Institute of WA Awards for Excellence. Just like all Nicheliving homes, our Medina project used cost-effective materials and innovative techniques to ensure high quality homes at a lower cost. Our energy-efficient and water wise planning means that over the long term, the homes continue to be affordable, by keeping utilities bills low.
In addition to Medina, we also have new home and land packages and apartments located throughout some of Perth’s top performing suburbs, including Madeley and Landsdale in the north, and Willetton, Canning Vale and Hammond Park in the south. Our highly sustainable developments in Atwell and Beckenham put you within metres of newly upgraded train stations, including the multi-million dollar Aubin Grove station, and either within walking distance or a 10-minute drive of shops, schools and recreation facilities, so you can also save on car costs.
So don’t believe the hype – affordable housing doesn’t have to be out of reach or out of the way. Not if you source it from Nicheliving.
