Mar­ket still hot de­spite win­ter chill

The Courier-Mail - Property - - MARKET WRAP - TEELA JUR­GENSEN

THE chilly win­ter weather hasn’t cooled off our property mar­ket, with many agents still reporting good sales and plenty of buyer in­ter­est.

John­ston Dixon CEO John John­ston said that with the school hol­i­days now over, the Bris­bane mar­ket was likely to im­prove even fur­ther.

Mr John­ston said that cur­rent low stock, es­pe­cially in the mid to high end of the mar­ket, low in­ter­est rates and in­creas­ing de­mand equated to a pos­i­tive out­look for the rest of the sea­son.

RP Data fig­ures show list­ings across Queens­land have dropped this week, but there are still some beau­ties on the mar­ket.

For­mer rugby league coach Bob Ben­nett, the brother of NRL coach Wayne Ben­nett, is tak­ing his lux­ury He­lensvale property to auc­tion next month.

Bob is well-known in foot­ball cir­cles for both his play­ing and coach­ing abil­i­ties and has just been awarded an MBE in the Queen’s birth­day honours list for his ser­vices to rugby league in Pa­pua New Guinea.

Mr Ben­nett coached the Pa­pua New Guinea na­tional side for 11 years, tak­ing them to two World Cups.

His five-bed­room wa­ter­front home, at 104 The Penin­sula, He­lensvale, is set on 683sq m with a pri­vate pon­toon and has a price guide of more than $840,000.

Mar­ket­ing agent is Philip Chillemi from McGrath Es­tate Agents. The property will be auc­tioned on Au­gust 3.

An­other up­com­ing auc­tion, this one for those dream­ing of sunny hol­i­days in warmer climes, is a beach shack at Boyne Is­land, south of Glad­stone.

The fifth-gen­er­a­tion Bal­lan­tyne fam­ily property is on the mar­ket for the first time in more than 70 years and has been used as both a hol­i­day home and full-time res­i­dence at var­i­ous stages.

Sur­rounded by mil­lion-dol­lar abodes, the two-bed­room wa­ter­front pad is ripe for ren­o­va­tion or a rebuild, mar­ket­ing agent Julie Wood of Ray White Glad­stone, says. It will be auc­tioned on Au­gust 9.

Place New Farm agent Ann-Karyn Fraser says there has been plenty of in­ter­est from lo­cal, in­ter­state and over­seas buy­ers for a lux­u­ri­ous Pul­len­vale es­tate at 457 Grandview Rd.

Sched­uled to go to auc­tion on Au­gust 7, the property has been com­pletely re­fur­bished since it sold for $3.985 mil­lion in 2011.

It in­cludes a five-bed­room home, two-bed­room gate­keeper’s cot­tage and pool house with home cin­ema, set on 4ha.

RP Data records show the property last sold for $3.985 mil­lion in 2011.

Bob Ben­nett is sell­ing his home at 104 The Penin­sula, He­lensvale; and (be­low) over­seas buy­ers have shown in­ter­est in 457 Grandview Rd, Pul­len­vale.
