SEASON TO SELL
MAKE THE BEST OF IT
SPRING can be the silly season when it comes to Far North real estate. Cheyenne Morrison of LJ Hooker Cairns South said the few months leading up to Christmas was often the busiest time of year. “People are moving because they want to buy homes within certain catchment zones of schools, work contracts are up – there are many reasons why they want to move before Christmas,” he said. “From now until about late November is peak selling time in Cairns.” With the Cairns property market tipped to finish 2017 with a wet sail, Mr Morrison said would-be sellers should take advantage of the favourable conditions.
“The slowest period is almost always after Christmas, when the wet season has started and people have spent their money,” he said.
“My advice – if you’re thinking of selling, try and do so before the end of this year.”
Over coming weeks, he expected there to be strong market interest in a “charming” two-bedroom Queenslander at 121 Woodward St, Edge Hill (pictured), which is currently listed for offers in the $600,000s.
“It’s in the heart of a premier Cairns suburb,” he said. Grab your Real Estate Guide in today’s Weekend Post.
