Whitsunday sees increasing DIY home renovation activities: HTW residential

Staff reporterJuly 19, 20200 min read

Local agents confirm Whitsunday is not seeing any reductions in sale values, however volumes of sales are lower than what was previously occurring prior to the pandemic, according to the June Herron Todd White (HTW) residential report. 

The valuation firm suggests that in locations across the nation, the downtime delivered by isolation has spurned on owners looking to improve their assets through maintenance and upgrade. This month's HTW residential report highlights where renovations are on the rise and the price points and outcomes those markets can expect.

The report notes the Whitsundays are starting to reopen with cafes and some tours now operating within the government restrictions. Cafes and restaurants are still providing take away services. People are out and about enjoying the lightening of the restrictions.

"Renovations in the Whitsundays! While I have not seen any contracts for renovations and or additions over the last couple of months, it must be happening as Bunnings appears to be the best shop in the Whitsundays!

"The car park appears to be busy all week end. While we had to all stay at home it appears that the DIY home owners have been hard at work!

"We need to get our tourists back. Let’s hope that we can track on a positive note with limited to no cases new cases of Covid 19," the valuation firm said.
