Gul­liver has what most buy­ers want

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

NEW fig­ures from realestate. com. au show there is one Townsville sub­urb more pop­u­lar with buy­ers than any­where else in the re­gion.

Ac­cord­ing to data re­leased by the web­site, list­ings in Gul­liver drew the most in­ter­est from po­ten­tial buy­ers over the past 12 months.

Not far be­hind were Mund­ing­burra and Her­mit Park, with the three neigh­bour­ing sub­urbs all top­ping the list of most pop­u­lar ar­eas.

Har­courts Kings­berry sales agent Danielle Ro­nan said it was no sur­prise to see Gul­liver top the list.

“The whole sub­urb has def­i­nitely be­come more pop­u­lar over time and that trend seems like it will con­tinue,” she said.

“A lot of peo­ple say that they want to get in be­cause it’s part of the catch­ment that makes up the pop­u­lar Currajong State School.

“Another fac­tor is af­ford­abil­ity, par­tic­u­larly when com­pared to nearby ar­eas such as Hyde Park and Pim­lico where prices have been grow­ing a lit­tle bit.”

Ms Ro­nan said most in­ter­est in the area and sur­round­ing sub­urbs came from lo­cals, par­tic­u­larly young fam­i­lies.

“All those top sub­urbs are more af­ford­able and have older houses so buy­ers see a chance to get in and re­vi­talise a prop­erty,” she said.

“On top of that there’s a di­verse range of stock from all price brack­ets which means there’s some­thing for ev­ery­one to be in­ter­ested in. Units in the area also get a bit of de­mand from in­ter­state in­vestors and that helps to drive a bit of the pop­u­lar­ity as well.”

Ms Ro­nan said the re­sults showed now was the time to buy into the area.

“There’s plenty of stock but it’s all start­ing to move fairly quickly,” she said. “If the at­ten­tion is there then Gul­liver must be on buy­ers’ radars and it will be in­ter­est­ing to see how the area de­vel­ops in the fu­ture..”
