Are Master-Planned Communities Good Investments?

January 12, 2021

 If you want to invest in real estate, you have a number of options. Here’s why master-planned communities make good investments, and which ones are worth your hard earned cash.


It’s a Nest Egg for the Future

A master-planned community is planned with care. You can be sure you’ll have access to everything you need. On the other hand, an existing suburb doesn’t always have what you need all in one place. In a neighbourhood like Bloomdale, every element is planned with your needs in mind. Bloomdale has a range of parks, playgrounds, walking and cycling paths, as well as reserves and the future Bloomdale Town Centre – which will provide a supermarket, shops and much more. Bloomdale has the benefit of its close proximity to the established community of Diggers Rest with a primary school, child care, sports reserves and a train station, all just 45 minutes’ drive from Melbourne. More people are seeking housing around Melbourne’s suburbs, which also allow for easy access to the CBD. Neighbourhoods like Bloomdale are ideal and are expected to grow in the coming years. For this reason, your property could be a solid long-term investment.


You Have a Say in the Design

One of the biggest myths with house and land packages is that you can’t see what you’re buying – but that’s just not true. When you invest in a master-planned community, you get to work with a builder on the property’s design. In fact, buyers can visit display homes and get ideas of what may suit them, and even take a drive around to see some of the homes completed. At Bloomdale, you get to work with some of Victoria’s local and national builders. To see what they offer and talk to a home consultant, you can visit Bloomdale’s Display Village.


It’s Easy to Maintain

In a master-planned community, you can find exactly what you’re looking for. While the homes vary in budget and style, they all have one thing in common – they’re brand new! This means your investment will be lower maintenance, because everything is new. You can also add value to your investment, by adding modern luxuries like ensuite bathrooms and theatre rooms, or an alfresco area for entertaining family and friends.


The Verdict: Are Master-Planned Communities a Good Investment?

Are master-planned communities a good investment? Well, the success of your investment depends on a few things, like the location of your investment. Bloomdale, for example, is located in the suburb of Diggers Rest. Like most of greater Melbourne, Diggers Rest has been called “highly attractive and liveable“. If the location of your land for sale is popular, this may indicate that your investment could pay off. 

It’s an exciting time to be investing in a master-planned community. Some of the best new suburbs have incredible facilities and customisable homes that you can adapt to fit your tastes. So long as you do your research, you could be investing in a property that will generate returns for years to come. 


For the best of country charm, comfort, and contemporary living, as well as the Melbourne CBD just a 45-minute drive away, Bloomdale is the place to be. With a wide choice of block sizes to suit your needs and established facilities at Diggers Rest, you’ll enjoy the convenience of connection from the first moment you enter the community.
