North Queensland market on the way up

first_imgWoman Holding House KeyIT’S widely acknowledged that the local economy has hit some turbulence, with consumer spending at an all-time low and confidence in the property market at rock bottom. But for those who are experienced in property cycles there is certainty, and a level of comfort, in the predictability of a property cycle — what goes up most certainly comes down and vice versa. And while suggesting we have finally hit rock bottom may not sound like a good thing, if you are a savvy purchaser it is music to your ears. You know that once the market hits bottom you have limited time to act if you are to enjoy what we call capital gains. For local real estate agents one of the earliest indicators we see that the tide is finally turning comes in the form of investor inquiry on our local property listings. In the past four weeks two of our properties have attracted significant investor interest. About 90 per cent of total inquiries are coming from investors in Sydney. One of the properties, a two-bedroom unit priced under $200,000, received only one local inquiry and 13 from interstate. The property was snapped up and put under contract immediately.More from news01:21Buyer demand explodes in Townsville’s 2019 flood-affected suburbs12 Sep 202001:21‘Giant surge’ in new home sales lifts Townsville property market10 Sep 2020Talking to my fellow agents, they are optimistic and feel that the market is about to perform well. We are all fielding regular inquiries from investors outside our region as well as from southerners looking to relocate here for work. And as we approach the traditional spring selling season we expect these inquiries to ramp up.However, when we speak to our local community it’s a very different picture. Everyone has been so beaten and battered by the tough economy they have no motivation when thinking of listing their home for sale.I would (and so would my industry colleagues) urge anyone that is unsure about selling their home right now, to talk to their preferred local agent about what is actually happening out there rather than put too much weight on talk around the water cooler. We are seeing days on market shortening and multiple offers being made on well-priced property. This activity, along with the increased interest from outside our region, is the earliest signs that things are about to change for the better. Townsville typically enjoys a bumper level of real estate sales activity in the months that lead into the Christmas period and this year is poised to be quite interesting as the tight market conditions from the beginning of the year are starting to loosen.So my message is simple — don’t believe the hype. Talk to a few agents (not just one), listen to what they’re saying and trust that those professionals who work at the coal face know what’s really happening.Now is a great time to sell and you know what they say about the early bird!last_img read more
