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 Mackay Harbour, Queensland apartment has slashed its listing $450,000 and is still yet to find a buyer.

Originally listed in 2008 the unit sought $1.8 million.

11 years down the track the vendors are now seeking just $1.35 million, a $450,000 reduction from what was originally sought.

Hermina Vickers of Vickers Group is currently marketing the property.

Situated at 1/5 Megan Place, the property is a four bedroom, three bathroom apartment.

Set on 429 sqm, the abode comprises 210 sqm of balcony and 219 sqm of internal area.

Featuring a balcony on the front side and back, the unit features views of the international marina as well as the ocean and Coral Sea Islands.

It is located on the terrace level of the Admiralty Towers.

The holding includes two secure car park spaces and access to complex facilities such as the pool, spa, sauna and BBQ area.

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 ElizaCentral GeelongEast Perth and Sydney Olympic Park.
