What Is A Preferred Estate?

09.09.21 - Getting Started

If you can’t decide where to build your new home, have a look at our preferred estates in Queensland. Not only do we personally recommend them, but they have exciting promotional offers in place too.

What are estates?

Estates are large areas of vacant blocks that are available for purchase to build residential or commercial buildings on. They’re usually on the outer corner of a suburb to allow for recreational inclusions such as train stations, parks, shopping centres and public pools. 

When building in a new estate you build through a contracted builder, such as Domaine Homes, as opposed to purchasing a pre-established home.

What are preferred estates? 

Preferred estates are ones that we have networked  a good relationship with the developer for that estate. This means we personally recommend the area and allows us to create promotions for selected estates such as fixing the price on site-costs, because we know that the site costs will not move much past the promotional offer.
