What’s the minimum deposit required to buy a block of land?

Buying your own land with LandGipps is more accessible than you may have thought. With a deposit from as low as $10,000 you can own your very own piece of Gippsland within a quality development. Brad Creighton, sales manager for LandGipps explains.  “When you find the right block of land with LandGipps, you can hold it for $1000 and buy it with as little as a $10,000 deposit subject to finance approval.  Of course, the $1000 goes towards the deposit.” Brad explains that Landgipps takes a simpler approach than many other developers and sales agents. “Rather than a 10% deposit, an allotment purchased with Landgipps can be held with a $1000 refundable deposit.

I understand that things do happen and you can’t account for everything. Your car might break down […]

Median house prices in Corinella rose 40.4% in 2015 and thus far 12.61% in 2016 but note that it is a relatively thin market with approximately 80 properties sold over that period.

At first glance it appears to be a volatile market however when you look at the trend over the last 10 years, you can see that investors, holiday home buyers and owner occupiers have enjoyed significant capital growth.
