Right Here, Right Now: Your Future Awaits as Marigold Tarneit Reaches Major Milestone

The opportunity of a lifetime awaits you and your family as Growland celebrates the titling of Stage 8 at Marigold Tarneit and the completion of construction on the residential project.

At Growland, we are driven by our commitment to create places for people to enjoy for a lifetime, where residents are inspired to build their forever home in warm and welcoming neighbourhoods, immersed in nature. For us, it’s about much more than land or house and land packages especially at Marigold in Tarneit, it’s about building futures and thriving communities.

Marigold is the first of Growland’s communities to reach this milestone and with land lots still available, you too could build your future in one of Melbourne’s fastest growing regions. Marigold Tarneit
provides a unique opportunity to make an investment in more than house and land, it’s an investment in you and your family.
The best part is, it’s also a chance to build in an established community. No need to wait for amenity to be delivered, everything you and your family need is already right here, right now.

What’s on Offer
No matter where you are in your new neighbourhood, you’re only steps away from wetlands, parks and playgrounds.

Fill your afternoons with picnics, games, food and friends at Frog Way Park. A place where you can sit and relax in the sun, have a hit of cricket or kick of the soccer ball, or watch the kids tire out their legs running through the open grass area or climbing the play equipment.
If the kids are really little, then Gathering Grove Park is the place to be, with its specifically designed elements that ensure they stay safe running and jumping from logs and steppers that are close to the ground, all the while making new friends as you relax.
That’s right, two parks, one community. And if that’s not enough, easing its way through the centre of Marigold is the Linear Creek Reserve, offering water views and shared paths to enable an healthy and active lifestyle. Oh, and Dry Creek also sits in the community’s south-west corner, further adding to the soothing vistas and natural environment.
But this isn’t just about the kids, it can be about you too, with a number of walking and bicycle tracks available for you to stretch your legs and breathe in all that fresh air, surrounded by established trees and grassed areas. After a long day, you’ll just love coming home.

A Life of Ease Awaits
What really sets Marigold Tarneit apart is the uniquely easy and convenient lifestyle on offer.
With newly built schools in Tarneit and a Family Centre close by, all the local amenities you and your family will need are ready and waiting. This also includes fantastic access to shopping centres (Tarneit Central is a short 5 minutes away) plus medical centres, a library and the new landmark Wyndham Stadium Precinct a state-of-the-art Regional Football Facility just 7 minutes away. With Melbourne’s CBD just 25km away, access to one of the world’s great cities is a short drive or train ride away with Tarneit Train Station located 4 minutes from the Marigold community.

If you’re looking for land for sale in Tarneit, then you’ve come to the right place. Marigold Tarneit offers far more than your average house and land package; it offers an unbeatable lifestyle and a unique chance to be a part of a thriving community in one of Melbourne’s fastest growing pockets.

Construction continuing on Marigold’s Stage 10 Park!

Construction of Marigold’s Stage 10 Park in Tarneit commenced late last year before the Christmas break. The construction site is now a hive of activity as the construction team work hard to deliver the second local neighbourhood park for the community in Tarneit.

The construction team began with earthworks to shape the land to the desired levels and prepare the area for the next stages of construction. Since continuing work at the start of this year, drainage has also been completed and the park has really begun to take shape with the different sections of the park now evident, the concrete for the shared paths complete, and the first signs of equipment installed.

Stage 10 Park site secured with Earthworks underway in December 2022.

This next phase of construction is an exciting one with the team installing all of the play equipment for the park, completing the paving and edging around the path network and continuing to install the feature boulders, timber bench seating and will connect and install the water drinking fountain.

Park bench seating and equipment being installed in Frog Way Park.

If you’d like a recap on what play equipment will be included in Frog Way Park, you can visit our previous news post here.

The final phase of construction will include the landscaping works and the installation of the rubber soft-fall surface around the play equipment with works anticipated for completion mid-year. The park will open some time after that once official approvals have been received from council.   

We look forward to delivering this new park to the Marigold community that will provide a space for relaxation and encourage a healthy and active lifestyle for all residents. Marigold residents can expect to reap the rewards of being surrounded by ample green space, look forward to spending many hours outdoors and feel the benefits of an enhanced connection to nature. This is a space that all Marigold residents will be able to enjoy passively or actively.

Stay tuned for more construction updates coming soon!


Derrimut Road Entry Feature Complete

Work has recently been completed on the entry feature for the secondary entrance to the Marigold community off Derrimut Road in Tarneit.

Constructed in the same style and design as the original entry feature, on the corner of Doherty’s Road and Padma Boulevard (at the entrance to the Marigold Display Village) the new entry feature ensures consistency and a cohesive feel throughout the community by continuing the curvilinear stonework.

Construction of the entry feature has included building the stone walls by laying the individually shaped rounded boulders to the varying heights of the sloped wall. The wall is then levelled out and smoothed on top to create a nice finish, whilst simultaneously a signage writer has been commissioned to create the signage panels that make up the Marigold logo.

Lastly, the entry feature is not complete without the landscaping work completed on the surrounding area with planting and laying grass.

Currently temporary fencing surrounds the new entry feature whilst the landscaping works continue.

Stay tuned for more construction updates coming soon!

End of Year Construction Wrap Up

2022 has been another big year at Marigold!

Marigold opened its first of two local parks, Gathering Grove Park, located on the corner of Cherish Drive and Rejoice Street in Tarneit earlier this year.  The park which will be the largest in the community boasts vibrant colours and feature play equipment that are easily identified on the approach to the park, creating a point of reference amongst the community. Construction has recently commenced on the Stage 10 Park, Frog Way Park, which is anticipated to be completed in July next year. You can read our news post on construction being underway on the new park here.

After two years in lockdown, we were finally able to celebrate the opening of our Display Village and officially welcome our Display Village builder partners to the community. Displaying 14 homes by 8 reputable builders, the Marigold Display Village brings together the very latest in modern design, family oriented and connected living, with a range of designs and layouts to suit all budgets and lifestyles. The Marigold Display Village is the place to visit to find the perfect House & Land package within our community. If you’re looking to be inspired before locking in your builder, you can view online here or visit in person Saturday to Wednesday.

Civil construction on the entry wetlands and skeleton creek, located near Stage 9 begun this year and we are happy to update that construction is now complete and we’ll begin the final phases of landscaping and planting in the coming months. You can read our Wetland Construction Update news post here.

Earthworks underway on the Wetlands

Read on below for a stage-by-stage progress report on the works occurring in your community.

Stage 10

Stage 10 will be the next Stage in the Marigold community to welcome new residents who can begin settling and construction of their own homes in the new year.

Stage 10 is currently in the Practical Completion phase and is aiming for Statement of compliance to be awarded before the year is out. Stage 10 Titles will register in the new year!

We look forward to welcoming our Stage 10 residents to the community.

Stage 6

Construction is progressing well in Stage 6, which will be our next Stage to title after Stage 10.

The sewer and drainage works have now been completed and Kerb works are continuing. The road network has now been outlined throughout the stage and the construction team will continue to prepare the ground and start to construct the lower layers of the road pavement. Each stretch of road is made up of multiple layers, compiling of several layers of various gravel types, kerbs are added at the correct road height and then finally asphalt, which can be seen on the finished surface. From here, the construction team will install water and gas mains for ease of access for authorities to manage these services in the future. Once complete, attention moves to the physical construction of the kerb and channel (or gutter system). This is a barrier between the road pavement and the nature strip which is designed to provide road drainage and prevent water entering under the road surface. Construction on Stage 6 is anticipated for completion late Quarter 1 and we will then proceed with seeking approvals from all relevant authorities before lodging at the titles office.

Road layers going down in Stage 6

Stage 11

Sewer works have recently been completed in Stage 11 and drainage works are now underway. The drainage works will involve the construction of all stormwater pipes and pits throughout the stage. This will allow the safe draining of all stormwater away from all house lots preventing flooding. This stage will also involve work continuing along Skeleton Creek and the surrounding reserve. The Stage 11 scope will also deliver a culvert (bridge) that connects the Eastern part of the community to the Western Part across the waterway. The culvert will allow the water to continue to flow underneath whilst traffic crosses above on a regular looking road.

Concrete blocks on site ahead of work to begin on the culvert.

Stages 7, 8 & 12

The bulk earthworks are now complete throughout Stages 7, 8 & 12. Sewer works are underway in Stage 7 and will commence in Stage 12 before the year is out. Sewer works for Stage 8 have been scheduled to commence in early-2023.

The sewer works will involve the construction of all trunk and reticulation sewers to provide sanitation services to each house lot and connect these services to previously laid services throughout the community and to the wider approved sewer network.

We are looking forward to focusing on the delivery of these stages throughout 2023 and welcoming new residents to the Marigold community. The final stages of the Marigold community will go on sale next year. Stay tuned for your final opportunity to join the community!

The Marigold Construction Team will be taking a well-earned break over the holiday season and will be back on-site continuing work on your community mid-January. 

Stay tuned for more updates in the new year and don’t forget to check out our other construction updates on Marigold’s new park and ongoing construction on the wetlands!

The Pros of Buying off the Plan
The Pros of Buying off the Plan

The Pros of Buying off the Plan

Tossing up between buying off the plan and established? 

Here are the pros for buying off the plan!

Giving you time to save

Many first home buyers like buying something off the plan because it gives them more time to save for their initial deposit compared to established.

Buying off the plan enables you to secure land, or a house and land package, that suits your financial capability.  An initial deposit of $1,000 is all you need to secure the right block of land to suit your dream home. Upon signing your land contract, the balance of your 5% deposit is payable and no further payment is required until your land titles (which depends on your loan arrangements).  In the meantime, whilst you are waiting for your land to title, you are able to work with your chosen builder to finalise your build costs. You also have the time between paying your deposit and settlement to continue saving for upgrades, items for your new home or allowing for unexpected costs. This transparent and upfront process can be more agreeable, particularly if you are working with a tight budget and need to know exactly the amount you have committed to.

Buying off the plan allows you to enter the market on your terms. You are not subjected to attending multiple auctions week after week praying for something to sell within your price range. You already know the total cost of your land or house & land package (fixed only).  With established homes, you also have a shorter window to settle, generally either 30, 60 or 90 days and need to allow for stamp duty fees. 

Another advantage is that we work with many builders who also offer saving plans for first home buyers. Ask our sales team to point you in the direction of these builders if that sounds like something that interests you.

5% is all you need!

Here at Marigold all you need to secure your lot is an initial deposit of $1,000! This secures your land whilst you review your contract with your conveyancer.  The balance of the 5% deposit is required upon signing your land contract. At settlement, after your land has titled, any further payments are made by your banking instituion on your behalf in accordance to your loan conditions. Anticipated title dates vary between stages in a community and can generally range from 9 months up to 18 months. When choosing the right block of land to suit your needs, you can choose one with titles further out, so you have plenty of time to save.

Saving on stamp duty 

If you buy an established home, you will most likely pay land transfer duty (otherwise known as stamp duty). 

Depending on the value of your home, you may be able to claim a duty exemption or concession.  

First-home buyer duty exemption – A one-off duty exemption is available if your new home is valued up to $600,000 and will be your principal place of residence (PPR).

First-home buyer concession – You may be eligible to claim a discount on your stamp duty if your new home is worth between $600,001 to $750,000 and it will also be your principal place of residence.

When you buy a block of land, stamp duty is only calculated on the value of the land, which may mean you will not be required to pay for stamp duty at all. Whooppee!

Receive $10,000 from the government with the First Home-Owner Grant!

That’s right, $10,000 from the government for nothing! Pretty sweet huh?

If you build a new home valued up to $750,000, you may be eligible for the First Homeowner Grant (FHOG).

Avoid the negotiations

Never been a good negotiator? Buying off the plan can save you the trouble!

When choosing to buy established, conditional/unconditional loans, settlement timeframes and deposit amounts are all factors that can influence your attractiveness to a vendor. Any offer you present is at the vendors discretion. This is where second home buyers and investors can win out over first home buyers in negotiations if they have a bigger deposit amount saved or the imminent sale of a home behind them.

We hope we have put together a good case for buying off the plan. At the end of the day, we know that you will make the right decision for you at this stage of your life.
Most importantly, buying off the plan is great as you have the fun and freedom of choosing your home and being the first one to live in it!

Saving for your deposit

Saving for you first home is no easy feat! Thankfully, we have some tips and tricks to help you on your way.

Review your finances 
It’s time to look at what’s going in versus what’s going out. Are you living above your means? You probably have an idea about where you are sitting already.
Review what you spend your money on. Is there room for you to cut back in any way? Those coffees add up! Lunch out adds up. Find what it is for you and come up with a plan to address your squeaky wheel.

You could purchase a coffee machine and make yourself barista quality at home. You can then put it in your fancy keep cup and take it to work with you.
Compromise to only eat out once a weekend and do anoter activity with friends instead.
If you are always tempted by Ads, it’s probably a good idea to remove your most tempting brands from your social feeds for the short term.

Lenders do go through your bank statements so if the spending looks reckless, they are going to look at your application less favourably.

Credit cards
They sound amazing but did you know when applying for a loan banks and lenders assume you use the entire credit limit each month?
This means even having one in your name, even if it is just for “emergencies” means you have an automatic amount of debt against your name.  
If it isn’t absolutely essential for you to have a credit card, getting rid of it before you apply for a loan, reducing the limit, or transferring the balance to one with a lower interest rate, will help to improve your borrowing capacity.  And be sure to always pay off your credit card on time!

Buy Now Pay Later
It’s lay buy but with a twist where you get the goods first and pay the balance off later! Too good to be true? Sadly, yes.  It’s another factor lenders will be looking out for when they assess your home loan application. It doesn’t send the right message to the lender as you should be able to afford to pay for the things you need to buy in full at the time. It’s also super easy to rack up a lot of debt here really quickly which doesn’t signal that you’re particularly good at managing money or a home loan. A good rule of thumb is; if you can’t afford to buy it twice you can’t afford it at all.

Now that you’re committed to saving, it’s a good time to check your savings bucket for any holes – aka, subscriptions. Those expenses that are coming out of our account unnoticed that you really aren’t getting much value for.

Do a review of all direct debit subscriptions that are coming out of your account. Which subscriptions are you actively using and which ones could you honestly do without. Many of us signed up to a streaming
platform (or two) throughout lockdown. During lockdown that made perfect sense because we were all at home way more than we wanted to be (and using these platforms way more than we would like to admit).

Now that we are back out socialising, like the social butterflies we are (not too much because we are saving) we may not be getting much value out of them. Firstly, if you have multiple streaming
services; make a decision to stick with one and cut the rest. The beauty of these services is that you can binge one show on one platform one month, suspend and watch another show on a different platform the month after. Put a date in your calendar each month (just before the renewal) where you look
at your calendar for the month ahead and make a judgement if you will use it this month. Suspend if you’re going to be busy and keep if you’re planning to have a quieter social month. Plans fall through? You can resubscribe in an instant.  

Having a regular check in like this will make sure you’re not paying for it whilst off on a holiday too.

Another common one for a lot of people are gym memberships. Summer is coming but honestly reflect on how much you are using this service. Gym memberships are a little more complicated in that they cannot usually be suspended and unsuspended without going through paperwork – which they know is cumbersome and why they do it to keep your money rolling in!
If you’re booking classes via an app, you should be able to go back through your app to see how often you went over the last month.
Now, divide that number by your monthly charge. Is it worth it? Is that the value you wanted to be getting from this service?
Noone is saying quit the gym but there might be a more value driven option for you. If you are a really sporadic gym goer a casual membership might be the way to go. These one-off passes seem more expensive but if you only get to the gym once one week and three times the next, you’ll be saving money overall. The other great thing about lockdown was that a lot of people uploaded a lot of free exercise content online. Plus, with the weather getting warmer you might find you have more motivation to wake up early and go for a walk or run instead. Being in nature is an added benefit for your health too!

We hope these tips will be beneficial to your savings goals. Stay tuned for more updates coming soon!
