TONY’S NOTES

Highfields' Own - - REAL ESTATE - — Tony Franke, prin­ci­pal of Ray White Toowoomba Range

Hello and wel­come again to the lat­est edi­tion of High­fields’ Own mag­a­zine.

The year is fly­ing along and as I write this it’s hard to be­lieve Easter is just around the cor­ner.

In re­gards to the lo­cal real es­tate mar­ket I am sure that I some­times sound like a bro­ken record, but the fact is with the half-acre to acre prop­er­ties in High­fields, there is sim­ply very lit­tle on the mar­ket.

Buy­ers are cry­ing out for these prop­er­ties, how­ever they are be­ing held very tightly and as a re­sult the few that do reach the mar­ket are sell­ing very quickly and for good prices.

I be­lieve that one of the main rea­sons for this is that there is hardly any larger blocks of land be­ing re­leased by devel­op­ers.

These larger blocks are what High­fields was orig­i­nally built on and the life­style that they cre­ated.

Even the smaller blocks were a quar­ter of an acre which is twice the size of your mod­ern Mid­dle Ridge block.

It would be nice to see a devel­oper come along and de­velop some of the larger blocks — again, they would sell ex­tremely well.

There are a lot of buy­ers who still want room for a shed, pool and room for a veg­gie patch and the kids to play.

Wish­ing every­one a happy Easter, and if you haven’t been be­fore, check out over Easter the Pioneer Vil­lage — it’s a great place that the whole fam­ily will en­joy.
