Capital city buyers fed up with unaffordable property prices are heading to Townsville

first_imgLes Walker is happy that buyers in capital cities are becoming interested in Townsville’s affordable property market.TOWNSVILLE is attracting the attention of home buyers from capital cities drawn to the region’s affordable property market.Owner-occupiers, investors and people looking to buy land and build their dream home are eyeing off opportunities in Townsville.As upcoming projects progress such as the North Queensland Stadium interest is expected to soar. CLICK HERE for more Townsville property news Deputy Mayor Les Walker said as well as affordable house prices Townsville had a great lifestyle to offer.“There is definitely interest from southern investors, more so in the older house stock,” he said.“There are people moving here for the lifestyle and our focus at council is maintaining and improving that and also making sure there are jobs for people.“Housing prices are low and that means it is quite affordable for people who are moving here.”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 2020North Shore project manager Andrew Astorquia said they were preparing for a rise in interest from people in southeast Queensland.The UDIA published the “State of the Land” report in 2016 which showed the average lot size in southeast Queensland had reduced to below 500sq m for the first time at an average price of $255,750. As of today, we have 600sq m lots priced at $167,000 minutes from playgrounds, schools and shops,” he said.“It doesn’t take much research for buyers to understand the value offered in Townsville versus southeast Queensland.“As the Townsville economy starts to improve, as it is expected to do over the next few years and with it more jobs being created, the affordability offered in Townsville in terms of bang for your buck will certainly become more appealing to southern buyers .”Real estate expert Terry Ryder has also listed Townsville among the top 10 places to invest in the country in his hotspotting report.Mr Ryder said he acknowledged that if you looked at Townsville right now at the current numbers you wouldn’t want to buy there.“We are suggesting the future is a lot better,” he said. “There are some big events coming up in Townsville in terms of infrastructure.’’REIQ Townsville Zone chair Damien Keyes said Townsville was perfect for investors searching for affordable property.“Melbourne and Sydney prices have been running hot but they seem to be slowing and with that investors will start looking further afield for better returns and that’s been happening in Townsville.”last_img read more

Homes selling before auction in Brisbane’s mid-ring as search for fixer-uppers intensifies

first_img9 Ossian Street, Geebung, went under contract within days of listing.THE mid-ring has begun seeing homes sell before they can go under the hammer amid a rise in househunting for fixer-uppers within 15 to 20km of the Brisbane CBD. Five houses of the 82 listed to go to auction this weekend in the Queensland capital have been struck from this weekend’s bidding list after selling before they could go under the hammer, with one in particular raising eyebrows — in blue-collar Geebung. 75 Charlotte Street, Paddington Qld 4064Two of the homes that went under contract were in the inner circle, under 10km from the CBD — a three bedder at 153 Alexandra Road, Clayfield and a four bedder at 75 Charlotte Street, Paddington. Two others that sold before auction were in the high demand bayside — a five bedroom home at 37 Boswell Terrace, Wynnum, and a four bedroom home at 6 Ringara Street, Manly West.But it was the sale before auction of a three bedder at 9 Ossian Street, Geebung, that could be a good indication of what’s stirring in the market. 6 Ringara Street, Manly West Qld 4179 A spacious backyard and veranda at the Geebung home.

Renters with pets in for ruff ride

first_imgFor Simone Small and her kids Taejhan Luba, 11 years, Maiarna Reilly, 6, and Aysha Luba, 13, there was no option but to find a rental property that allowed their dogs Archibald, 8 months, and Rogue, 2 years. Picture: Annette DewA CHRONIC shortage of pet-friendly rental properties has sparked a furbaby crisis, with a spike in abandoned pets pushing out the RSPCA surrender waitlist and seeing renters take almost three months to find a new home.RSPCA Queensland fears the chronic shortage will force pet owners into abandoning their animals, amid a troubling case of a dog found in the dump.“We’re seeing more and more of this,” a spokesman warned. “We have a waiting list of six weeks for surrender of animals.”According to census data, just over a third of all houses and units in Brisbane alone were rented out, but despite growing levels of pet ownership among Queenslanders, rental properties have failed to keep up with demand.Furbabies have become an integral part of the Aussie family. Picture: SuppliedPet Insurance Australian spokeswoman Nadia Crighton warned many pet owners still struggled with finding suitable rental accommodation for their entire family “including the furry kind”.“Finding rental accommodation that welcomes pets is no easy task,” she said, with some owners even going as far as lying about the pet living in the home.“Sadly, many renters do hide the fact that they have a pet on the premises. This can cause a huge amount of continual stress and fear that the landowner will discover the pet.”A search of pet friendly rental accommodation found just over 1,700 listings for Greater Brisbane on realestate.com.au, and just over 5,600 in Queensland. Last year alone, the Brisbane City Council reported 45,920 enquiries for animal permits and registration.What parent wouldn’t go out of their way to encourage this kind of cuteness? Jemimah Trevor, 6, with a silky. Picture: Mike BatterhamThe shortfall has created a nightmare situation for renters like Simone Small who took three months to find a rental property that would allow her daughters to keep their American staffy and dachshund.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus20 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market20 hours ago“I applied for 42 properties and all of them said my application was turned down towards whoever the owner wanted that didn’t have pets. It was a long lengthy process and pretty much a nightmare,” she told The Courier-Mail.She ended up taking whichever property had her application accepted: “I literally applied for any house that was appropriate. The house we ended up getting I didn’t even look at the property. I think the lady could hear the desperation in my voice and said yes the owner doesn’t mind pets and I just said I’ll take it.”Hair-babies? Maybe not, but pets come in all shapes and sizes like these piglets Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Cloves. Picture: John Gass.She said it was unthinkable that they might have to surrender their pets.“I honestly couldn’t have broken that news to my kids so it wasn’t an option. We just kept looking. We got pushed out to Everton Hills which is a little bit harder to get the kids to school, but there was no question for us, we just to find one that would allow us to keep our pets. I’m glad we found one in the end.”TIPS FOR RENTERS— Have a pet resume for your pet and attach this to all applications.— Be honest.— Ensure your dog is well trained and up-to-scratch with his/her doggie manners.— Ensure your cat is house trained and has no litter box woes.— Contact your local real-estate and ask them to contact you if pet accommodation becomes available in the area you wish to move.— Be prepared to offer a little extra in rent, or bond.— Have references on hand. This could be your dog trainer, vet and previous pet accommodation.(Source: Pet Insurance Australia)FOLLOW SOPHIE FOSTER ON FACEBOOKlast_img read more

Gold Coast sees spike in first home buyers

first_imgExperts say there are still plenty of affordable properties in and around Surfers Paradise. (AAP Image/Dave Hunt) Housing estates being built along Foxwell Rd in Coomera Waters. Picture: Jerad WilliamsTHE State Government is on track to approve $20 million in first-homeowner grants this financial year after a 30 per cent spike in applications.Almost 750 grants have been approved already this financial year. The total for 2016-17 was 683.The government’s $20,000 first-homeowner grant ends on June 30. The Naia complex set to be built at Mermaid Beach will offer affordable apartments. Holly Power, 20, and Alex Hart, 21, used the first-homeowner grant to buy land at the newly released Harriet Lane estate in Urbex’s Northern Gold Coast development. Housing estates being built along Foxwell Rd in Coomera Waters. Picture: Jerad WilliamsHolly Power and Alex Hart used the first-homeowner grant to buy land at Oxenford’s Harriet Lane estate.They said it was tough competing against interstate and overseas investors for existing properties, so chose to build instead. COAST HOUSING MARKET TO ONLY GET BETTER “It is hard to find a house on the Coast for under $500,000, especially for something you want and to yield positive gains,” Mr Hart said.“Purchasing land and building allows us to live in a brand new house and add value through a pool and outdoor entertaining area. “We can build equity on the house and use it as a stepping stone to purchase another property.” Experts say there are still plenty of affordable properties in and around Surfers Paradise. (AAP Image/Dave Hunt)“The reality in the market place is that the $20,000 grant doesn’t go far when you’re buying brand new.“Generally, you’re going to see people who take advantage of the grant whether there’s value or not.”Both Mr Newlands and Mr Coughran believed the number of people applying for first homeowner grants would likely drop after June 30. Inside the Naia complex set to be built at Mermaid Beach.He said bargains could be found in and around Surfers Paradise; buyers just needed to weigh up what they wanted.“There’s still something for everyone (but) if you love surfing, there’s no use moving to Coomera,” Mr Newlands said.Buyers agent Tony Coughran, of Gold Coast Property Advisors, said first-home buyers also had options in the heart of the city where places like The Star Gold Coast and Pacific Fair were easily accessible.“Those first-home buyers are looking at other opportunities to satisfy their lifestyle, and looking for points of difference, like waterfront units,” Mr Coughran said.“The grant doesn’t even come into the equation for those people.

HIGHEST AND LOWEST SELLING SUBURBS However, he said building was often more expensive than buying an established property and it was restricted to the north and south of the Gold Coast where land was available.“The grant was really designed by the government to stimulate the building industry,” Mr Newlands said.

HIA says housing market cooling as first quarter sees drops across all capitals except one

first_imgHIA hopes the housing slowdown will ease policy pressure over negative gearing. Picture: AAP Image/Brendan Esposito.GOOD news if you’re househunting: Australia’s peak housing body has signalled a cooling across the market, with every capital city except one registering falls in the first quarter.The comments come after the Reserve Bank Governor Philip Lowe made particular reference to slowdowns in the Sydney and Melbourne housing markets when he left the national cash rate target at 1.5 per cent.HIA principal economist Tim Reardon agreed “the market is already cooling”.“As noted by the RBA Governor, the housing markets in Sydney and Melbourne have slowed. In fact house prices fell in the first quarter of 2018 in all capital cities, except Hobart,” he said.“Sydney house prices are now 2.1 per cent lower than they were a year ago as a consequence of the supply of housing temporarily rising to meet demand.” RELATED: Mortgage relief as rates stay on hold More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus20 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market20 hours ago RELATED: RBA to keep interest rates on hold Mr Reardon said it was now a record 19 consecutive month that the cash rate was left on hold at 1.5 per cent.“And,” he said, “it seems it won’t change soon.”Mr Reardon said there had been a decline in investor activity in the market after direct intervention by APRA to cool the market.“The market is already cooling and this is not the time to expose the market to higher interest rates, or heavier taxes through changes to negative gearing.”.CoreLogic head of research Australasia, Tim Lawless, said in a statement over the RBA hold that while national dwelling values were flat last month, “six of the eight capital cities saw dwelling values slip lower in March, albeit at a reduced rate of decline relative to other months”.
