Far North Queensland To Outperform South East

By Simon Pressley

Promoted by Propertyology

If we were to draw a line in the sand at January 2018, I believe that the property market of Cairns will perform better than most locations in Australia over the next 3 years, including better than Queensland’s capital city,” said Propertyology’s Head of Property Market Research, Simon Pressley.

Australia’s sixteenth largest city ishome to the nation’s fifth busiest airport (approximately 5 million passengers per year). Cairns is Australia’s gateway to the Asian Century and the exciting opportunities that exist with the rise of Asia’s middle class.

Cairns’ assets include an international airport, a major sea port, a number of unique tourism attractions (on land and offshore), world-class facilities for hosting major events and business conferences, recent investment in universities, and an abundance of agricultural assets in the region.

Propertyology’s buyer’s agents team are very familiar with the Cairns market. We’ve already purchased numerous properties there for our investor clients. I’ve personally invested in Cairns!

The popular tourism mecca has added important economic diversity over the last decade. Education, health, and the construction sectors have evolved.

The navy is Cairns’ biggest employer. The federal government recently committed $120 million for new infrastructure and a major naval base expansion. Extra marine manufacturing and maintenance jobs are expected from the $200 billion fleet upgrade for Australia’s Defence Force.

James Cook university and, more recently, CQ university have expanded their infrastructure and are attracting more domestic and international students.

In July 2016, Cairns became headquarters for a new federal government department, administering the $1 billion Northern Australia Infrastructure Fund.

There’s already been 11,700 new jobs created in Cairns over the last 2 years. This 11.2 per cent increase is well above the national (3.7 per cent) and state (3.4 per cent) average.

A large pipeline of major projects means that an additional 10,000 new jobs is anticipated in the next 12 months. Commencing in 2018, Propertyology anticipates a jobs BOOM to drive employment growth, local confidence, and property prices for a few years.

Among an extensive list of major projects are the $120 million port expansion, 3 new 5-star hotels, and a $650 million eco resort.

A $175 million expansion of the Cairns Convention Centre will increase capacity for major events such as the Amway China Leadership Seminar for 8,000 delegates in 2019.

$475 million isto be invested on three major renewable energy projects (Mt Emerald wind farm, Lakeland solar farm, and MSF Sugar’s bagasse-fuelled power station).

Housing supply has been quite tight in Cairns for several years. Residential vacancy rates have been consistently below 1.5 per cent for 5 years, easing even further over the last 18 months to currently be 1.3 per cent.

Since 2010, only 450-700 new dwellings have been approved each year. This low volume of new housing supply combined with affordability and jobs-driven demand is the perfect combination for property price growth.

Our buyer’s agents have focused on 3-4 bedroom houses within a few select pockets. With the typical purchase price in the low $400,000’s and rental yields of circa 5 per cent, the annual holding costs are so affordable that even those borrowing 90 per cent only have to find $3,000 per year. And, the potential for growth is as exciting as anything in Australia!

With the softening market impacting property values in many parts of Australia, Sally Dale, Opteon state director for NSW, ACT and Qld joins us to discuss the importance of valuations in the current property market

" ["fulltext"]=> string(3002) "

Joining host Phil Tarrant, Sally will draw on her 25 years of experience in valuation and discuss the processes involved in arriving at a value for a particular property. She will also share how that process differs between commercial and residential properties and the difficulties which regional property valuations can present.

Sally will unpack the importance and cost of regular valuations on your properties, discuss whether presentation and owner input can sway a valuation and share what you should look for when seeking a reputable property valuer.

A softening market can be a difficult time for a property investor with finance approval tightening and property capital growth slowing, and while many real estate agents are also feeling the squeeze McGrath Brighton Le Sands' Bill Tsounias claims it is simply the market returning to normal.

" ["fulltext"]=> string(2834) "

In this episode of the Smart Property Investment Show, Bill joins host Phil Tarrant to share his thoughts on the current Sydney property market, and to share the shifts that he has seen in house and unit sale prices following their worst quarter in the past decade.

Bill will unpack why properties are spending longer on market, share what he believes property investors are doing wrong when trying to sell their properties and share the secrets to getting the best out of a real estate agent and an auction in the current softening market.

Gavin Kemp and his now-fiancé bought their first property together after only six months of dating. They weren’t even living together at the time. Now, two years on, the pair have bought five properties, sold two and have a solid plan in place for their ongoing property journey. 

" ["fulltext"]=> string(2893) "

In this episode of the Smart Property Investment Show, Gavin joins host Phil Tarrant to discuss how he chose the locations where he decided to invest and how, due to the initial lack of education (something that he now values highly), he lost money on his first two investments.

Gavin will share his thoughts on the current property market, reveal the people who he has leaned on throughout his property journey and discuss why his strategy employs a zero procrastination rule.
