Purchase An Apartment With Just a $1 Deposit

Purchase An Apartment With Just a $1 Deposit

Award-winning property developer Beulah International is hoping to give young Australians a leg up in the Melbourne property market by allowing individuals to purchase an apartment in their Paragon development with a deposit of just $1.

To help mitigate the affordability crisis in the Australian market, Beulah International will lend the required 10% deposit to a handful of lucky purchasers, which is to be paid back within 24 months before settlement – interest free.

Beulah International General Sales Manager Jamie Baldwin said saving for a deposit is the main hurdle Australians face when trying to enter the Australian property market.

“By the time people save their 10% deposit, which can take a few years, the properties they were looking at have gone up even further and they need to reconsider their price bracket, or save a larger deposit.

“By lending the deposit to purchasers, they’re able to secure the apartment for the price it is in 2017 and have two years to repay the 10%, before their mortgage repayment kicks in,” he said.

A limited supply of prestigious apartments in Paragon range in price from $560,000 to $1.3 million, meaning Beulah International will be lending deposits up to $130,000.

“It’s like Afterpay essentially, but on a much larger scale.”     

Located at the former Celtic Club site on Queens Street and developed by Fender Katsalidis, Paragon comprises of 227 apartments and Australia’s first indoor elevated forest.

HABITUS TOWNHOMES SETTING THE TREND FOR VERTICAL LIVING

HABITUS TOWNHOMES SETTING THE TREND FOR VERTICAL LIVING

We are proud to play our part in setting the trend in Melbourne’s housing market with our four-storey Habitus Townhomes.

Vertical living is something we encourage Melburnians to consider, where each of our townhomes offers three bedrooms, four levels of living space as well as a rooftop terrace.

Nathan Mawby from the Herald Sun talks about four and five-storey townhouses being popular among younger generations who are seeking something more substantial than an apartment in an inner-city location.

Nathan chats to Koos de Keijzer from DKO Architects who explains the design elements that make our Habitus residences outstanding. From the architectural staircases to the overall layout, you won’t even feel like you are in a four-storey home.

Beulah International Set to Deliver Australia’s First High-Rise Indoor Forest

The innovative spirit of Beulah International endures, as we are pleased to announce our plans to create Australia’s first indoor forest in a high rise at our upcoming Paragon project.

The three-storey elevated urban forest overseen by well-known landscaper Paul Bangay will be part of our newest project, PARAGON.

Situated within the 48-level tower, the urban forest resembles a conservatory comprising mature trees, leafy canopies, climbing gardens and grassy spaces along with terrazzo pavers and seating zones.

The indoor forest will create a sanctuary for residents to enjoy and be an escape from the busy city streets below.

Paragon has been designed by Feder Katsalidis Architects and will feature a Celtic-inspired exterior pattern to tie in with the site’s heritage.

The development encompasses one, two and three-bedroom apartments starting from $500,000.

Beulah International fills the gap for home loans

Beulah International is pleased to be able to assist investors and purchasers in need, offering to fill the funding gap left by major Australian banks.

With many apartment purchasers being left in the dark after many of Australia’s major banks put a halt to foreign loans last year, Beulah International is offering some welcome relief to investors and homeowners by proposing vendor-assisted financing as an alternate option.

With strong demand for both Gardenhill and Hallmark Ivanhoe, vendor-assisted financing will allow us to provide long-term loans via the use of licensed brokers and lenders, to ensure those who still wish to buy are given the opportunity.

In line with our vision of being forward thinking and innovative in the property sphere, we launched a coffee campaign in hopes of squashing the misconception that you need to be wealthy in order to invest.

By partnering with a local café to our Gardenhill development, we gave away 100 coffees a day for two weeks to help potential buyers see the value of saving their pocket change.
