Here in Central Queensland, we are seeing our property market in high demand with rental vacancies on the decline and rental returns on the rise. Purchasing land has never been so affordable with some fantastic incentives from the government, but we don’t have enough properties on the market to feed all the hungry buyers!
Whether you are simply monitoring the market or considering selling in the future it is always important to look at what the latest data is showing and familiarise yourself with the latest market trends. I welcome you to get in touch if you would like any further information about the Gladstone property market, including Calliope, Boyne Island or Tannum Sands.
If you are unsure where your property sits in the like market, now is the time to have me visit your home and provide you with a complimentary property appraisal.
Our local market
The latest Queensland Market Monitor was released late last month and showed that our house market continued with solid conditions during the first three months of this year.
In fact, our median house price growth was the second best in the state for the year ending March with growth of +3.9% to $281,000. Plus over the quarter, Gladstone’s median house price was up +2.2%. Queensland has led the nation with its planning and development approval system, and we have not seen any failure to meet timelines during COVID-19.
I have been in Real Estate for 20 years and am thrilled to see such encouraging movement in our local market. Since I stepped into Real Estate in the year 2000, I have experienced the rollercoaster lifestyle that all of us in real estate have grown to love. Through it all I have raised my 5 children on my own after losing my beloved husband of 21 years. I thoroughly enjoy being around my family who I adore very much. I eventually met my current partner who sadly had a stroke 18 months ago and is now in an aged care facility. Through all of this my passion for the industry and Gladstone has stayed strong and I continue to do what I love every day.
I love to share my knowledge and passion to all my clients, both new and old. We are here to guide you on your journey to buy or sell. All it takes is a phone call and I am happy to come and have a chat and offer my guidance for your buying and selling journey.
