Hot Time to Sell Over Summer

It seems that the weather is not the only thing heading up this summer on the Capricorn Coast.  Over the last couple of weeks, we have noticed an increase in buyer activity and it is worth noting that many of these buyers are coming from out of town and are looking to move to the area.  You may or may not be surprised to know that many are moving here to start new jobs in a variety of industries.  All of this buyer activity has left the Yeppoon and Emu Park markets low on stock (properties for sale) especially homes under $500 000.  We urgently need more houses to sell under $500 000 and have hot buyers waiting. 

Increased buyer activity and low stock levels means that this summer is a great time to sell.  Generally speaking, many vendors will wait until after Australia Day before putting their house on the market, however the team at @ Real Estate believe that a better result may be achieved by making the most of the current market and listing your property for sale now, while buyers and tourists enjoy summer on the Capricorn Coast.

Natalie and Jodi, the @ Real Estate sales team have been achieving great results for many happy vendors and are keen to sell as many properties as they can over summer.  However urgently need more properties to sell.  For example, 346 Bungundarra Road, Bungundarra sold within 7 days of listing, in that time this property had over 6 000 internet views, 28 enquiries and 12 groups attended the open home.  Furthermore 17 Holt Street Yeppoon sold within 9 days for full asking price, in this time this property had over 3713 internet views, 9 enquires and 5 groups attended the open home.

The Capricorn Coast has a bright future with some great infrastructure going ahead, along with high cattle and coal prices combined with natural beauty and beach lifestyle, it's no wonder the forecast is for a hot summer of selling property on the beautiful Capricorn Coast.  To discuss making the most of the current market and call Natalie on 0407 625 846 or Jodi on 0417 970 642.
