Cairns July 2018
The month in review: Cairns
By Herron Todd White
A $500,000 property investment in Cairns will secure a well located modern executive style suburban dwelling, or alternatively an above average quality apartment in the Cairns CBD, located on the mid to upper levels of a high rise unit development. Indeed the purchaser or investor at this price level would find a large range of sectors, styles and locations available to choose from. However it remains difficult to spend $500,000 on a new apartment due to the absence of new unit construction at that level.
The $500,000 mark in the Cairns market is relative to the current (May 2018) median price trend levels of approximately $403,000 for houses and $216,000 for apartments. Median price trends are continuing to demonstrate flat market conditions. Over the latest twelve months, 75% of houses and 93% of apartments sold in Cairns have transacted for $500,000 or less.
