Will the stadium boost property prices?

September 28, 2020 | nvxeoqvi | No Comments

first_imgI am often asked about the impact major projects have on property prices in the Townsville area. I remember when the ring road was mooted. People in the Upper Ross were telling me that their properties were now worth more money. The same today with people living around the new stadium. Do property prices soar around major infrastructure developments?In the case of the ring road, we found that it didn’t really add to the sale prices for Condon, Rasmussen and Kelso but it made the suburbs more popular because there was now another access point. In real terms the Upper Ross was not necessarily any better off with the ring road unless you wanted to visit Douglas, Riverside and the army access road. The trip to the CBD was still the same distance, you simply had another route to get there.

The whole neighbourhood was buzzing with the news of its arrival. Some people even bought property in the Upper Ross hoping that once the ring road was opened their property would increase significantly. It did not happen.The new stadium had, and still has, the people of South Townsville and Railway Estate excitedly talking up a storm. And now that construction has begun the site is buzzing with energy. But we still don’t see it as the silver bullet for house prices. I am confident that some buyers and sellers may have benefitted by the announcement and subsequent construction, but it is my opinion that it has made the area more desirable to live in which will drive buyer interest. But when it comes to infrastructure there is rarely, if ever, one single thing that leads to a recovery for the city. It is almost always a combination of multiple projects coming together at the same time that instils confidence in buyers and the business community. Projects such as Adani, the dual pipeline to the Burdekin, the Singapore Army interest in Townsville, the possible reopening of Queensland Nickel, the new Stadium, the solar farm at Kelso and the extensions to the Townsville port, to name just a few, will all help grow the confidence of our local area and this will attract investment to the commercial and residential sector. When people feel good they spend money and that applies to buying an ice-cream a new car right through to a new property. Let’s hope the projects online for our great city all materialise and put Townsville back on the winner’s podium where it deserves to be and will be in the future. Opinion is divided over whether the North Queensland Stadium will help increase property prices. REIQ Townsville Zone chairman Wayne Nicholson weighs in.
