Pos­i­tive out­look for 2015

The Weekend Post - Real Estate - - Real Estate -

CHRIST­MAS is fast ap­proach­ing and I would think ev­ery­one in the real es­tate in­dus­try is look­ing for­ward to the short break – most man­age to take off be­tween Christ­mas and the New Year. Our as­so­ci­ated pro­fes­sions such as lawyers, ac­coun­tants, build­ing and pest firms will all be closed. It has been a good steady year with most real es­tate of­fices record­ing im­proved num­ber of sales. Cairns is now one of the shin­ing lights on the Queens­land coast, as well as the south­east cor­ner. Most ci­ties in be­tween that had good times dur­ing the min­ing boom but are find­ing their mar­kets to be in a down­turn, and in­vestors must be con­cerned if they in­vested too much, think­ing min­eral prices and min­ing was to con­tinue for years to come. Ob­vi­ously Aquis was the cat­a­lyst to ig­nite our mar­ket and the de­lay doesn’t seem to have slowed our ac­tiv­ity. Many other de­vel­op­ments have come on board and even if Aquis was not to pro­ceed, there would be enough go­ing on to cre­ate a snow­ball ef­fect for oth­ers to follow. I be­lieve 2015 will see a steady in­cline on the prop­erty clock for Cairns. Greg Moule, prin­ci­pal, Cairns Prop­erty Of­fice
