Woodlea's birthday giveaway: Win your way into a new home
Olivia RoundFebruary 23, 2020

In celebration of the 5th anniversary of the Woodlea community, the team behind the master-planned precinct have announced an extravagant birthday giveaway. Five lucky homeowners will receive their 5% land deposit back, which could be up to $20,000 each.

In addition to this prize, anyone who purchases property* within the Woodlea community during March will receive a $10,000 prepaid Visa card. 

What is Woodlea?

Woodlea is a master-planned community, located in the suburb of Aintree, 40 kilometres west of Melbourne city. Delivering the decade-long project is Victoria Investments and Properties (VIP), and ASX listed property developer Mirvac. With over 2,800 homes sold to date, the new development is now home to over 5,000 residents.

Property available within the precinct includes sections, house and land packages, architecturally-designed townhomes, and Porter Davis detached dwellings. In November, Mirvac announced that many of their Woodlea townhouses will also include smart solar packages, enabling residents to save up to 80% on electricity bills – with scope to eliminate all electricity costs in future. 

"Since its launch five years ago, Woodlea has gone from strength to strength, taking out the title as Australia's fastest-selling community and is making leaps and bounds in its efforts to become Australia's healthiest community."

The precinct also sits on 711 hectares, with a large portion dedicated to green open space for both residents and the broader community to use. Woodlea has the capacity to host major sporting events with an Australian Rules football oval, cricket pitches; tennis and netball courts; and state-of-the-art facilities. The community also includes a selection of playgrounds and cafes. 

Upon completion, Woodlea will be home to over 20,000 residents. According to the 2019 HIA Population & Residential Building Hotspots Report, Rockbank’s population experienced a 59.4% growth in 2017/18 and over $224 million in building approvals – which goes to show the extent Woodlea’s exponential growth is having on the wider community.

Could March be a good time to buy at Woodlea?

Next month Woodlea are planning to release a brand new collection of 60 unique lots, with their $10,000 prepaid Visa card becoming available to new buyers within the community. Sections within the new release will start at $288,000, providing buyers with an affordable entry price point.

Woodlea Sales and Marketing Manager Lora Armstrong explains that the birthday rewards were a way of helping first home buyers enter the property market by giving them a head start financially. 

"None of this would be possible without the support of our customers and our community, with over 5,000 residents currently calling Woodlea home. It seemed only fitting to give back to new home buyers who are trying to climb the property ladder."

The five winners will be be announced at the start of April and will be drawn at random (game of chance).
