Buying a property can be stressful, with a holiday often needed by the end of the process.

One Gold Coast developer wants to alleviate that pressure by giving away a free holiday for the buyers of his Miami duplex.

The two, four-bedroom pads will head under the hammer next month and the successful buyers will not only receive the keys but also a $5000 getaway.


The buyers of 20A & 20B Albion Ave, Miami, will get a free holiday worth $5000.

Ray White Broadbeach agent Troy Fitzgerald, who is marketing the property with Conner Malan, said one of the homes would come with a winter adventure, the other a summer escape.

“For the winter holiday we are thinking New Zealand or Japan where they can go to the snow and for the summer one, Bali or Thailand,” Mr Fitzgerald said.

“It was the builder’s idea — something outside the box.

“There are so many new developments that come to the market between the Gold Coast and Brisbane and real estate is getting to that point now where you have to be outside the box with marketing and draw some attention to it.”

The four-bedroom properties were recently completed.


Luxury finishes are showcased throughout.

The pair of properties feature open-plan designs with double-height ceilings in the main living areas, ­neutral-tone interiors, luxury finishes and an eye-catching white ­facade.

Builder and developer Nick Makin, of Makin Construction, said he hoped the holidays would create hype and competition come auction day.

He said the Albion Ave project was more about showcasing his company’s skills rather than making a profit.


The auction is scheduled for June 15.

“We wanted to showcase what we are all about for future client work and also produce something that is very unique and custom that somebody will be lucky enough to purchase,” he said.

“It wasn’t all about the developer’s margin. We spent money where we didn’t need to, to showcase what we can do.

“We do one-off builds that are high-end quality with custom features — we designed our own front doors and balustrades for this project.”

The two properties at 20A and 20B Albion Ave, Miami, are scheduled for auction on June 15 at 1pm.
