Despite months on the market and huge price cuts, these properties just won’t budge.

These 10 properties are the most heavily discounted in the country, according to SQM Research.

  1. 38 Considine Street, Ellen Grove, Queensland

    The 10 most heavily discounted homes in Australia

    The owners of this 1.57 hectare flat block with a brick house have lopped its price by 43%, this biggest house price cut of any home currently on the market.

    After 245 days on the market and a new $799,000 asking price, down from $1,400,000, the property is still for sale. A half hour’s drive from the Brisbane CBD, the property is being advertised on its development potential.

  2. 2 Wellington Street, Richmond, Tasmania

    The 10 most heavily discounted homes in Australia

    Richmond’s Mill House, sitting alongside the convict-built Richmond bridge, has seen its asking price cut by $1 million, down from $2,800,000 to $1,800,000.

    The historic property has a four bedroom, four bathroom main residence, with a formal living and dining area, sunroom and cellar.

    There is also a self-contained cottage on the property, and the vendors are open to selling the adjoining plot. According to the listing information, “A change of circumstances has significantly increased the motivation of the Vendors of this magnificent Country Retreat [sic]”.

  3. 219 Bernard Road North Carabooda, West Australia

    The 10 most heavily discounted homes in Australia

    A newcomer to SQM’s list, this rural property has been discounted by 35%, with its asking price now $2,272,000, down from $3,500,000. It’s been on the market for 321 days.

    SQM notes the property is an “acquired taste,” writing that “this home would perhaps struggle to find buyer interest outside of those interested in the rural/farming market, narrowing down the vendor's target market immensely”.

    According to its listing information, the property is located four or five kilometres from the “future CBD of Alkimos”.

  4. 76 Tinderry Road, Michelago, New South Wales

    The property, located near Michelago village, is within a half hour’s drive of Canberra’s suburbs. Permanent water is supplied to the property by the Michelago creek, with two dams on the land.

    The original 1925-era home still stands on the property and requires significant renovations.

    Next door to the Box Hill Hospital, the apartment is within walking distance of Box Hill’s shopping centres, public transport and the Box Hill Institute.
