Location Lends Rockhampton Property Market Strengths

By David Bell

A recent article from Property Observer makes the case that successful property investment will be all about careful consideration of location during 2014.

One area that was singled out in the November 20 report was Rockhampton.

Property Observer reported that real estate in Rockhampton was experiencing an increase in sales volumes, as well as in prices.

The region's nearness to Gladstone and Mackay, along with it being less reliant on resources, were both heralded as big plusses for investors.

Additionally, when compared to hotspots like Sydney, Rockhampton offers a much more affordable investment opportunity.

This is great news for anyone looking to sell property in Rockhampton.

Meanwhile, those looking to rent out property in Rockhampton will likely see a boost from the first home buyer market, which is struggling due to Queensland abolishment of the first home owner grant in October 2012.

Whether looking to sell or rent out property, it seems that Rockhampton is poised to offer property owners a wealth of lucrative options.

Also, by investing in property management services, owners of rental properties in the region can streamline the process even more, guaranteeing professional service to monitor properties and tenants.
