Entry Level Hervey Bay Property Growth – Market Prices Soar

Brian Thompson, the senior broker at Property Brokerage, said that finding cheaply priced, entry-level property in the gorgeous coastal community was becoming increasingly difficult, with the typical starting price of $450,000 for a basic three-bedroom, single-bathroom home being the norm rather than the exception. Four-bedroom house and land packages, which were extremely popular were priced at about $350,000— first home buyers that qualified saved were also eligible for up to $45,000 in government grants and rebates available bringing the final price down even further. $25,000 builders grant and local council $5,000 grant was available to other buyer types so long as they qualified.
