Dream comes true for young couple purchasing their first home

Townsville couple, Stevie and Phaelon, are proud first home buyers after a battle in the rental market and years of sacrifice in their early twenties.

Stevie, an assistant manager and Phaelon who works in aged care, were forced to relocate three times in just over 12 months after the respective landlords sold the rental properties they were occupying.

“We had been struggling with renting as our landlords sold the rentals we were in three times in a row, and we looked at each other and said we cannot go through this again,” Stevie said.

The Townsville residents took no shortcuts when saving for their deposit, years of cutting back on spending and a change of lifestyle before purchasing a 486m2 lot in Townsville’s Bohle Plains.

“It was not easy, and no one said it would be. We lived on the bare minimum for over two years to be able to gather our deposit,” he continued. “There were many hurdles we had to get through, but we could not be happier with our decision, we have a home to live in and it is ours.”

Stevie and Phaelon have recently completed their four-bedroom home build with GJ Gardner Homes at The Reserve, an Urbex development in Townsville.

“Our build is complete and we have recently moved into our home. It is such a relieving feeling knowing we are now homeowners and don’t have to worry about rentals,” Stevie said.

The Reserve Townsville at Bohle Plains is conveniently located and offers affordable housing solutions, open space, landscaped streetscapes, waterway corridors, and walking and cycling trails, all of which are designed to create a peaceful balance between work and play.

Conveniently, large shopping centres, amenities, an entertainment district, sporting arenas, and more are all within a 5-minute drive.

The Reserve’s Brushwood Release is now selling, with lots ranging from 389m2 to 506m2 and priced from $155,000 to $182,000. Interested buyers are urged to call 07 4723 8933 for more information.
