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.
