July 2021 - Newtown on the move

From this month onwards, we'll be selecting a subject of some sort that we find interesting about the month that's been, something relevant and current - not just another "lecturing people" about generic real estate stuff kind of vibe. No one (myself included) has time for that, haha.

New Financial Year - New Blog Direction

As anyone who reads these blogs would know, over the last little while I've been feeling like the blog posts can feel a little bit routine/monotonous. I think I've been feeling that way because I often wonder what value they're bringing to the people reading them. I like sharing my vibes on things but am always mindful that someone taking time to read our posts should get something back for that time.

From this month onwards, we'll be selecting a subject of some sort that we find interesting about the month that's been, something relevant and current - not just another "lecturing people" about generic real estate stuff kind of vibe. No one (myself included) has time for that, haha.

This month; we're going to talk about Newtown, in our great city of Toowoomba (need to mention that, as there's a few Newtown's sprinkled around our great country). The main thing that has brought this on, is a property we recently had the pleasure of marketing at 222a Campbell Street in Newtown.

Now, 222a Campbell Street (now shown in our sold section, if you want to see some photos) was a suuuuuper nice three bedroom, one bathroom, two garage; brick character home that was sitting on a little under 700m2 allotment and presented really well. It was easy to see that the sellers of this property really loved the home.

What I immediately noticed when we put this home online was how much demand there now is on Newtown property, and how the market seems to have "shaken off" the traditional limitations around 'three-bedroom, one bathroom' home pricing. 222a Campbell Street sold in 7 Days for $600,000. What's also refreshing, is that there wasn't just one buyer for this home... we had eight offers within the seven days, four of them in quite close price proximity to each other.

I guess what I'm trying to allude to in this post, is that there's been a "broadening" of scope when it comes to looking for homes with easy access to the CBD. While East Toowoomba and Mount Lofty are still very well regarded; suburbs like Newtown, South Toowoomba, Toowoomba City, Rangeville & Centenary Heights are very much on the up and up too.
