The Cairns market has slowed in terms of numbers of sales, with sale numbers during 2015 to 2016 as a whole down by about 7% on 2014 to 2015, according to Herron Todd White’s latest monthly market report.

The property advisory firm says that in addition price growth during the year has been minimal.

"Our chart shows the price breakdown for houses sold in Cairns in each price category in 2015 to 2016 compared to 2014 to 2015. It highlights that the majority of house sales remains clustered in the $300,000 to $450,000 price bracket and is relative to a Cairns median house price of precisely $400,000 during the 2015 to 2016 year," the report stated.

House sales during 2015 to 2016 have slowed noticeably in each of the sub $450,000 price brackets and most noticeably in the sub $350,000 price bracket. This is most likely due to a lack of first home buyers and low end investors in the market.

An example would be a four bedroom home at 20 Cadell Street (above) that is for sale for $359,000.

However sales overall have increased in the $450,000 plus price brackets as confidence has continued to slowly build in this segment.

Sales in the $1 million plus category occurred during 2015 to 2016 across a variety of suburbs, with the highest numbers being observed in Redlynch, Trinity Park, Whitfield and Holloways Beach.
