Canberra is in the midst of a residential development boom, and consequently a number of houses are selling off-the-plan.
Buying off-the-plan can be financially beneficial as you get a number of government incentives and can enjoy living in a new home without paying market premium.
Here are four hot off-the-plan developments that are for sale in Canberra.
For those who love the outdoors: Fairway Ginninderra Estate
Located in the boutique Ginninderra Estate, Fairway, is a small development with only 12 homes. The houses have either three or four bedrooms and offer views of Brindabella.
Each house boasts a generous outdoor area and there are several fitness trails nearby.
Features of the development include stone benchtops, Gareth Ashton tapware and engineered timber floors in the living areas.
Price: $512,000 to $584,000+
