Buyers are still hunting for properties

first_imgIN  ALL my decades of real estate, I’ve never seen the challenges of the past month, writes REIQ Townsville Zone chairman Wayne Nicholson. The REIQ was here last week to host some special forums to help the real estate profession take the all-important next steps as we recover from this disaster. It was good to hear directly from people affected and learn straight from the horse’s mouth what the biggest issues are and what they need from us by way of help and support. As incredible as it is to believe, parts of the city are still functioning and the real estate market is still operating. There are properties on the market and there are still buyers looking for a home. Of course, the flood is going to have a massive impact but it’s important to get back to business as usual as quickly as possible. I was recently in the Bunnings nursery pondering the best ground cover to use in my garden when a couple walked past me. The gent stopped and said to me: “Because presentation is everything, eh?! I read your articles”. Firstly, I want thank him and, secondly, it got me to thinking about these columns.

I am not a property lawyer and I can’t answer legal questions but if it’s a general real estate topic, I’ll be able to help. All REIQ member agents are available to the public to discuss any real estate needs at any time and provide a service if required.Do not hesitate to contact an agent for advice on real estate matters and be prepared for the agent to refer you to a solicitor if the matter is a legal question. Finally, I’d like to offer some thoughts about the real estate market in the months and years ahead. The REIQ has data that indicates that while we will have a short-term struggle in some areas, in the next year, two years and five years, we’ll very quickly get back on track. Additionally, there will be a lot of support coming our way from the government and we’ll amaze the rest of the state and the country with how well we recover and how fast.Let’s get to it, Townsville.last_img
