What's the Highlife Homes development process?

Why Develop?

Investing in property has historically been an excellent and stable investment choice. The Gold Coast is consistently adding approximately 20,000 people every year,  and this shows no sign of letting up. As such, the city is a great place to consider developing property, for both immediate and long term benefits.

What can you gain as a residential developer?

Capital Growth – This is if you plan on keeping the development over a period of time and perhaps renting in the interim. Capital growth is when you see an increase in value over time.

Passive Income – If the property is positively geared, not only will you gain capital growth over time, but you will also gain a passive income from the rent which is great.

Immediate Return on Investment – If you plan on selling your townhouses at a profit immediately after the completion of construction you can make immediate profit.

Equity – If you have a mortgage for your investment, this is when the value of your property becomes more than what you owe on the mortgage – this difference in value is then potentially usable for another investment.

“I was referred to Highlife Homes by a family member. Being an offshore property investor, it is important to have confidence in the builder you select. Plan conceptualization by Michael was creative, his suggestions enlightening and attention to detail superb. The finishing schedule was well interpreted by Elyse who did a remarkable job in bringing the theme together. James, contact person for the project, communicated regularly, if there were hitches i did not hear of them. I can recommend this team for delivering a superior product, superior finish and superior service…my built experience has just been awesome.” Gregory Dinwoodie

“What a building experience! In the past 25 years I have built 2 family homes, 1 holiday home, 6 investment properties and 6 medium sized commercial properties and never had such a pleasant experience as working with James and his team from Highlife Homes. Highlife Homes went out of their way to make sure that we would have the best possible end product. It has been refreshing working with James, a person of integrity and a wealth of creativity and knowledge. We are already working on our next building project and I know Highlife Homes will be on the top of my list.” Ted & Elmarie Bouw

“We recently built an investment property with James George & Highlife Homes. I cannot recommend them highly enough. James and his team are very knowledgeable, professional and efficient, and the quality of work is exceptional. Nothing is a problem and any query is dealt with promptly. We are in the process of entering into a new contract with James and Highlife Homes to build another investment property for us in the New Year.” Jenny Stedman
