Panoramic views earn Urraween home top spot
AN URRAWEEN property with panoramic views from The Hummock in Bundaberg to Fraser Island has become the highest reported sale for the region.
The four-bedroom, two-bathroom house located at 45 Christensen St was on the market for 40 days before it sold for $715,000 last week.
The double-storey home situated on 1000sq m block is made from rendered brick with floorboards and has two lock-up garage spaces.
The property had substantially increased in value since it was last sold, when it went for $84,000 in September, 2002 before the house was built in 2005.
For the last month, the median house price on the Fraser Coast has been sitting at $327,000, just ahead of units which are $249,500.
On the market, there are currently 420 houses listed for sale in the $0-$299,999 category and 117 units.
The highest number of houses on the market are in the $300,000-$499,999 price bracket with 604 and 44 units.
From $500,000-$699,699 there were 216 houses listed and seven units.
There were slimmer pickings in the $700,000-$999,999 category with just 62 houses and two units.
Thirty houses and one unit are listed for more than $1 million.
The median sale price for the market was $275,000 which gave one-lucky home owner the title to 112 Cypress St in Torquay.
The bargain hunter's property last week was 628 Kent St in Maryborough which sold for $135,000.
