There are certainly opportunities in the current 2019 market to pay less than the last price.

But is there really such a thing as buying a bargain when it comes to property? And where are they?

This series of articles looks are specific examples of sale price or asking price falling. 

We take a look at where and if possible why this is happening.  

We came across this property for consideration.

A three bedroom, two bathroom house in Urangan, a coastal suburb of Hervey Bay in Queensland, has been re-listed with another reduction in its asking price.

The waterfront reserve home was first listed for $748,000 in 2009.

It then spent a year on the market in 2010 where its asking price dropped over the campaign to be asking for offers over $600,000.

Now it's been re-listed with a guide of $575,000 plus. 

The home at 685 Esplanade was built in 1999 and is described by the agents as a beautiful Queenslander inspired home.

It has uninterrupted sea views across the Great Sandy Straits towards World Heritage Listed Fraser Island.

Scott & Katrina Mitchell of Mitchell's Realty are marketing the home on 600 sqm.

Property Observer advise that it is up to you to determine if the offering is a truly beneficial bargain.

Remember buying at the bottom of the cycle is fraught – as you can't really precisely pick the bottom nor know just how long until you see some price growth.

Be aware you could be buying a poor quality property in an area with ongoing issues of oversupply of stock.

The oversupply could be also putting downward pressure on rents.

Other price declines could be because the vendor needs a quick sale or paid way over the top on its last purchase chase.

Property Observer suggests property purchasing really does need to be a very well considered proposition with a long term mindset.

As a part of this series, we've already had a look at properties in Mount Eliza, and Central Geelong and East Perth.
