Cairns’ fastest selling suburbs: Brinsmead still in demand

first_imgSIX months after it last topped the list of fastest selling suburbs, Brinsmead has again beat out premium suburbs such as Whitfield and Trinity Park as one of the most popular places to buy a home.Houses in the leafy, hilly suburb on the northern side of the Western Arterial only lasted a median of 22 days on the market, according to October 2018 data from Core Logic.Kewarra Beach came in second place at 26 days on the market, while Bayview Heights at 28, Edge Hill at 34 and Redlynch at 36 rounded out the top five.LJ Hooker Edge Hill agent Kim Ryan said Brinsmead’s location near multiple schools, state and private, was behind its popularity.“It is close to all your main amenities. If the market slows down Brinsmead is always one of the suburbs that bounces back first,” she said. “I’ve been selling in Brinsmead a long time and if the property is presented well and perceived as good value you’ll sell it quickly.Ms Ryan held the first open home on the weekend for 2 Matheson Dr and said more than 16 couples inspected the property. “When it really pours, people want to see where the water sits and that property didn’t have an issue,” she said.“People often comment that because it’s an established older suburb, it is leafy, with lots of parklands, and views.” FASTEST SELLING CAIRNS SUBURBS (by median days on market)Brinsmead 22Kewarra Beach 26Bayview Heights 28Edge Hill 34Redlynch 36Whitfield 41Caravonica 45Trinity Beach 50Mount Sheridan 57Smithfield 57Trinity Park 57Bentley Park 61More from newsCairns home ticks popular internet search terms2 days agoTen auction results from ‘active’ weekend in Cairns2 days agoGordonvale 63Manoora 65White Rock 67Yorkeys Knob 68Westcourt 70Manunda 72Mooroobool 74Palm Cove 85Mount Peter 94Holloways Beach 96Edmonton 96last_img
