Agent's high hopes for Rocky home

A STATELY home in Murlay Ave is one of the spectacular properties in the Frenchville suburb up for sale as Rockhampton’s property market rebounds from the January floods.

Agent for Design Real Estate Sherylene Stevens is expecting the house to fetch a price in the high $600,000s.

The home with four bedrooms and three bathrooms on 133 square metres is one of a few that have some of the best views in Rockhampton.

Two blocks of land in Panorama Heights had sold just last week, leaving only two blocks in the estate unsold.

Sherylene said there had been an increase in inquiries for northside properties in the past month.

“The market’s really picked up again since Easter and inquiries have increased tenfold,” she said.

“With the mining boom and many developments going ahead, the property market is moving from strength to strength here in Rockhampton.”

“And when I say Rockhampton, I mean the surrounding areas including Gracemere, Yeppoon and Emu Park which are all expanding.”

Sherylene said it was important to look at the upside of Rockhampton’s property market and its potential.

“We’re getting larger infrastructure development inquiries, including multi-unit land sales and major development projects.”

As for the north side of the city, houses were selling well.

“Frenchville is always popular and has received a lot of inquiries recently,” she said.
