LIVING through a COVID lockdown on the Gold Coast was the push Alyce and Ben Thew needed to buy their dream home.
The Carrara couple, with two young daughters, decided it was the right time to upgrade from suburbia to acreage.
“We love our current home but it was never going to be our forever home,” Mrs Thew said.
“We want a bit more space for the kids as they get older and after being in lockdown earlier this year, we realised how much our dream was to be on an acre or more.
“We started going to a few open homes and noticed how quick the houses were selling so when we found our dream property we jumped straight on it and made an offer just hours after the very first open home.”
The pair this week listed their three-bedroom home at 4 Avonbury Court, Carrara, at interest over $595,000.
“As hard as it will be to let our beautiful home go, it is too good of a market not to sell,” she said.
“With this global pandemic so unpredictable, we didn’t want to miss the opportunity while the market is high.
“Spring on the Gold Coast is the perfect season to sell as it’s not cold and dreary or too hot to venture out to open homes.”
