Hervey Bay has a good mix of purchasers across most asset classes, according to a recent report from valuation firm Herron Todd White.

The entry level range sub-$350,000 appeals to first home owners and downsizers, the March report found.

These homes are generally smaller three-or four-bedroom properties.

“This asset class also appeals to investors as gross returns can be upwards of five percent in some cases. Mid-range property up to $600,000 comprises a broad range from residential houses, acreage or even small scale rural lifestyle blocks,” the firm continued.

“This market is also a mix of owners and investors.”

Homes are generally larger and ancillary improvements become more extensive.

$600,000 to $800,000 sees predominantly owner-occupiers in the Dundowran Beach, Craignish and Wondunna acreage locations. Again, these are large homes with extensive ancillary improvements.

This range is also the base level entry for Esplanade homes along the Hervey Bay foreshore.

“Prestige homes above $800,000 are generally found along the Esplanade in Hervey Bay and this is an owner-occupier market.

“Although the buyer profile has not changed, there appears to be more confidence in this market sector over the past 12 months which is encouraging for the area. Another market that has continued to gain momentum over the past 12 months is the RV park owner with a number of complexes currently under construction in Hervey Bay,” the report concluded.
