TONY’S NOTES

Highfields' Own - - Real Estate - — Tony Franke, prinic­i­pal of Ray White Toowoomba Range

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

Re­cently there has been a lot of con­tro­versy sur­round­ing the pro­posed changes to some of our roads around High­fields and in par­tic­u­lar the pro­posed ex­ten­sion of Clarke Rd through to the New Eng­land Hwy.

To me it seems that most of the new de­vel­op­ment and higher den­sity hous­ing is to be on the north­ern side of Rees Rd.

It seems that the log­i­cal plan would be to widen and up­grade Rees Rd rather than con­tinue Clarke Rd through to the high­way.

Surely this would also be much more eco­nom­i­cal as well.

On the real es­tate side the lo­cal mar­ket is still the same as it has been for a while now with homes on a half to an acre still sell­ing very well and the smaller blocks tak­ing longer to sell.

Over­all there is still a short­age of prop­er­ties on the mar­ket com­pared to his­tor­i­cal lev­els and prop­er­ties in cen­tral High­fields are still in strong de­mand.
