Good news for buyers and sellers

For those looking for a bargain, the quarterly median house price remained around a half-million dollars in Ipswich ($515,000). Regional centres fared differently, Rockhampton  dropped nearly $100k to ($225,000), Townsville rose to ($430,000), Bundaberg added $6k to ($406,000), Gladstone dropped $70k to ($327,000), Mackay lost $18k ($407,000), and Toowoomba added $60k to reach ($538,000).

Even as we face more interest rate rises, we expect this will take time to noticeably impact buyer’s pockets and sales prices, and in the meantime, the clear supply shortage will continue to tip the scales in favour of sellers, as buyers compete to secure a property in the region.

We still see certain suburbs outperforming the regional median average is most regional areas, so take the values shown here with a grain of salt.
