Astute property investors are recognising the potential of the off-the-plan property market, with its numerous amenities and contemporary interiors at affordable prices.

As free-standing home prices surge and approvals to build new houses reach record highs, homebuyers are unsurprisingly seeking savings on brand-new luxury developments.

For many buyers, a downside to off-the-plan purchases include the long wait for construction but with many projects expected to reach completion before the end of the year, Urban has decided to take a look at ten soon-to-be-completed developments offered in Australia.
