Surge in interest as stage one of estate nears completion
AS MANY as 20 cars are rolling up to Hidden Valley Estate on any given day, as the project edges towards completion.
The estate is at the end of Rifle Range Rd and construction of the first 27 lots in stage one is due to be finished in a few weeks.
Close to half the lots are already under contract.
The doors will be opened to the estate for an information session on Saturday to help inform people who may be looking to buy land and build a home.
Project manager Brett Evans said the sessions were organised in response to a major increase in inquiries and visitor traffic in recent weeks.
"Some days we are having 15 to 20 cars come to site and we are seeing more than 80 visitors a day on the website," he said.
"Many of them have similar questions about the building process and grants, so we decided to get all the right people with the answers together to help guide them through."
The increased activity at Hidden Valley is being reflected across the region, with more than $21 million in property sales through August by the Ray White Whitsunday team.
The Ray White sales agent said the encouraging thing about Hidden Valley was some of the initial off-plan sales had already been on-sold for a profit.
An information session for Hidden Valley Estate was held yesterday afternoon and another will be held on Saturday, September 18, from 8.30am to 10.30am.
"We'll be helping with everything from finance, building, house pad construction, rainwater tanks and solar," Mr Evans said.
"We'll even have the farmer who's been working this land for 30 years to talk through grazing, water and farming for anyone looking to have animals or a hobby farm."
It has been a busy few months for Whitsunday real estate agents, with a record-breaking property sale made earlier this month and a rise in rental property interest in the couple of months before.
