‘Sell­ing sea­son’ kicks off in Bux­ton

Isis Town and Country - - News -

TO THE unini­ti­ated it looks like the whole town of Bux­ton is on the mar­ket.

A quick trip through “Childers’ best-kept se­cret” re­vealed that many prop­er­ties – both houses and land – were for sale through any of a num­ber of lo­cal real es­tate agents.

Ac­cord­ing to A1 Realty Wide Bay Bur­nett sales con­sul­tant Michael Vella, the high num­ber of “for sale” signs sprout­ing up in the area was nor­mal as we en­tered what he termed “sell­ing sea­son”.

“The time of year is sell­ing sea­son for Bux­ton, with buy­ers look­ing to se­cure be­fore Christ­mas. The other buyer group is re­tirees,” Mr Vella said.

“The past few years has seen real es­tate slow but (we’ve) seen a boost in in­ter­est.”

In the past 30 days, A1 Realty Wide Bay Bur­nett has had three prop­er­ties un­der con­tract and sold another three, which Mr Vella said was a clear in­di­ca­tor the mar­ket was pick­ing up.

“In­ter­est seems to be con­tin­u­ing, so we are op­ti­mistic about the next quar­ter,” Mr Vella said.
