Fringe proves cut above

The Weekend Post - Real Estate - - Front Page -

LISTED your house but anx­ious about it sit­ting on the mar­ket un­sold?

There’s a lot of com­pe­ti­tion on the Cairns real es­tate mar­ket now but here are the suburbs which are sell­ing the fastest.

Ac­cord­ing the July Mar­ket Trends Re­port re­leased by CoreLogic, suburbs which fringe the Cairns CBD are the most sought af­ter.

Stratford tops the lists for the low­est num­ber of days on the mar­ket (be­tween list­ing and con­tract date) at 42 days.

Edge Hill houses fol­low closely in sec­ond place at 45 days and Brins­mead at 49 days.

West­court houses also made the top five list at 51 days, fol­lowed by Fresh­wa­ter with an av­er­age sale time of 52 days.

While Clifton Beach is one of the prici­est suburbs in Cairns, it also takes longer to sell a house there (101 days).

Houses in Cairns North are also slow off the mark, turn­ing over on av­er­age in 97 days, and Palm Cove at 92 days.

In this week­end’s Real Es­tate liftout, agent Ray Mur­phy re­veals the top “turn offs” from a po­ten­tial buyer’s point of view. Read more on page 4. We also delve into the pit­falls and ben­e­fits of ren­o­vat­ing through fol­low­ing the jour­ney of three Elite real es­tate agents who are turn­ing to the tools to make a profit (on page 3).

SELL­ING FAST: Stratford is on top of the pop­u­lar­ity stakes in Cairns. This man­sion on Michael Dwyer Cl will set you back $1.25 mil­lion.
