Crisa­fulli home sells as mar­ket im­proves


THE fam­ily home of for­mer New­man gov­ern­ment min­is­ter David Crisa­fulli and his wife Te­gan has sold within a month of be­ing listed.

Mar­keted by Julie Ma­honey of Har­courts Kings­berry Townsville, the Dou­glas home sold in 23 days for an undis­closed price.

The av­er­age time on mar­ket for houses in Townsville is 98 days.

The re­sult comes as the city records a month of big sales, with two other houses selling for up­wards of $ 1.2 mil­lion each in Dou­glas and Bush­land Beach.

A prop­erty on St Albans Rd, Mount Louisa last week sold for $ 890,000, the high­est price in the sub­urb in two years.

The Crisa­fullis have moved into a home at Hope Is­land be­tween the Gold Coast and Bris­bane, as Te­gan pur­sues millinery busi­ness op­por­tu­ni­ties on the Gold Coast and David con­tin­ues his Bris­banebased busi­ness con­sul­tancy.

“We wanted it to be a short and sharp cam­paign be­cause we had a dead­line, mov­ing to Bris­bane, so it was im­por­tant for us to have it done and dusted,” Mrs Crisa­fulli said.

“Rather than chase a sale, which may never come, we listed our home for sale by set date.”

Mrs Crisa­fulli de­signed the house with the help of an ar­chi­tec­tural drafts­man.
