The Kingston Market
The property market is booming which has created a high demand for designing new homes in the Kingston area. Kingston is a highly sought after beachside location. Kingston is also the southern suburb we have completed the greatest number of projects in during 2021 and it does not appear to be slowing for 2022.

The Prime Design team in Hobart have been completing designs for lots of projects in the Kingston municipality including new homes and home extensions. The recently announced first home owner government grants announced by Premier Peter Gutwein on 1st March 2022 means that we anticipate that the building industry will continue to be very busy to keep up with the supply and demand of housing within the state. You will need to check your eligibility for the government grants available to see if you qualify however, it is anticipated that thousands will benefit from the scheme which is estimated to be valued at over $1.5 billion to help assist with Tasmania’s housing shortage and help encourage first home buyers into the housing market.
A recent article written by the local ABC on Kingston’s Population Growth Exceeding Infrastructure highlights that “the area of Kingborough, South of Hobart is the fastest growing municipality in Tasmania” as a result, driving up the value of properties and land in the area.
