Sales slowing as prices hold

By NATALIE SMITH

MILLION-dollar properties are still for sale at the Capricorn Coast's southern end, but real estate agents have noticed the market has got quieter.

Noel McFarlane from Harcourts Emu Park yesterday said he had three properties for sale valued at more than $1 million, including a $1.2 million rural property with a four-bedroom home and two-bed- room cottage on Emu Park Road, Coowonga.

"The market has been a little slower, but prices are still holding,'' he said.

"Rural properties in the past had been the ugly duckling of real estate but they have certainly caught up in the last couple of years.''

Principal of Buehows Real Estate, Emu Park, Alan Buehow also has a couple of properties currently on the market valued at more than $1 mil- lion. Mr Buehow said he had also noticed the market quietening in the last three weeks.

"Our busiest time is usually in the second half of the year, from spring,'' he said.

Also based at Emu Park, Lyn So- lito from Lyn Solito Real Estate said she believed the market was holding.

"It is quiet this time of year,'' she said.

"There is still inquiry but I think people are being more selective and trying to get bargain properties.

"We are still getting inquiries from people down south and miners who are looking for low-set and more modern homes.
