How to Buy a Master-planned Estate

By: Amos Grham

Many buyers agree that one of the attractions of buying a home in a master-planned estate is the chance to live in a resort-like atmosphere, free of maintenance and restriction. Instead of mowing the lawn, attending to the weeds, and painting eaves, you can spend your weekends by the pool. There has been a mixture of young families, older families and quite a few retirees buying their post-children dream home. If you are looking for just the perfect master-plan property then it is convenient when sites such as OzfreeOnline has first hand knowledge of the types of plans being built or available for viewing presently. OzFreeOnline.com has many updated and new real estate listings in their category for Apartments/Flats/Units in their thousands of online listings.

You have the privacy and space of a house, with the lifestyle and ready community of apartment complexes. It is a way to get the best of all worlds and is fast becoming popular particularly over the last few years because of the facilities that accompany them. It's becoming a trend around Australia, where many people are preferring more of a community, rather than just the straight forward housing development we were used to in the '80's and '90's.

It can be a five-star existence for most. Additionally, with a master-planned community the future infrastructure requirements of the residents can encompass many facilities, instead of a suburb evolving ad hoc. For example, many of these master-plan developments have an opulent country club feel, with lap pool, spa, putting green, and function rooms. In fact, it is the biggest backyard that anyone can have.

With a master-planned community, developers have the ability to control the destiny and timing of services in line with the needs of the growing population. It's about the delivery of what is needed by new urban communities, in terms of education facilities, retail facilities, entertainment facilities and comfortable living, which includes tennis courts, cycle tracks and a retail centre complete with medical facilities.
