Suburbs where Townsville homeowners may be sitting in gold mines

Homeowners at Sir Ingowa Central have owned their homes for an average of 16 years, revealing new data on the most tightly controlled suburbs in Townsville.

This was after reports discovered that Australia was on the verge of “big market pressure” and demand was outpacing supply in many regions.

In rural Queensland, the same pressure is felt in many markets, with only 6.3% of Townsville’s available housing stock on the market last year.

According to the Aussie Buyers’ Opportunities Report, compiled by mortgage broker Aussie Home Loans and data analytics firm CoreLogic, Garbutt and Oonoonba were even tougher, with just 4.2% of their shares for sale.

Of the 40 Townsville suburbs identified in the report, 10 accounted for less than 5.3% of the available housing stock for sale in 2020.

“In the rural areas of Queensland, we saw only 6.7% of all home stocks for sale in the 2020 calendar year, and buyer activity increased by 15.2% in a year,” said James, CEO of Australia.・ Simmond says.

“The local real estate market is undergoing a resurgence that we haven’t seen in years.”

According to the latest REA Market Trends Report in February, Townsville homes have been owned for an average of 11 years, making it the eighth most closely owned region in Florida.

Wide-area homeowners identified as “Queensland-Outback” had the best grasp of their homes, with an average tenure of about 12.2 years.

Looking at the more localized data, some Townsville homeowners are sitting in gold mines.

The closest suburb in Townsville is Sir Ingowa Central, which has an average retention period of 16.3 years.

This is followed by Pararender and Hyde Park, which are owned by owners for 15.5 years and almost 15.1 years, respectively.

The current median selling price of the pararender is $ 435,000, reaching a peak of $ 457,500.

However, the competition is fierce and the only homes on the market in the seaside suburbs are already offered.

In Onunba, which has an average holding period of about 5.3 years, housing reversals are much faster. This is followed by Burdell, which has a hold period of 6.74 years.

Many of the suburbs with short average tenure are characterized by new or near-new residential estates.

At Townsville’s most expensive suburban Castle Hill (average selling price $ 1.08 million), homeowners average 11.4 years on the hillside shelter.

At Northward, which has a median selling price of $ 700,000, owners have maintained their homes for about 14.5 years on average.

There, the median home price surged 27.3% against the backdrop of 29 sales over the last 12 months.

The house in Kita Ward has only five owners since it was built in 1903. The listing price was $ 1,995,000 and is currently available.


For units, the most closely held suburbs are Hyde Park, Nelly Bay, Mundingburra, Pimlico and Hermit Park. There, the unit will be retained between 8.61 (Hermit Park) and 11.82 (Hyde Park).

The news reports that local agents have more buyers than inventories, leading to fierce competition for quality homes and units.

Enthusiasm is largely led by locals taking advantage of record low interest rates and government incentives, but buyers outside the town also feel their presence.

According to the REA Insights Property Outlook Report 2021, prices rose in 80% of the Queensland region last year. This is due to the improved situation in the resource sector. COVID-19 has shifted the population to the Australian region and increased the number of people buying second homes and villas.

“Price increases in the past do not indicate future price increases, but at this stage we expect 2021 to be the bumper year for price increases,” the report said.
