A $500,000 outlay can buy a wide variety of properties in Hervey Bay, according to Herron Todd White’s latest report.

The property advisory firm says that Fraser Coast is the best performing area.

“A lazy half million in Hervey Bay can buy a wide variety of property depending on the location, size of the site and improvements.

“Property along the waterfront Esplanade has been selling in this price range, with most dwellings being older circa 1950s basic dwellings in need of complete refurbishment.

“There are also modern homes only one street from the Esplanade which sell in this price range, within a developing estate known as Ocean Blue in Pialba.

“Best performing property for the Fraser Coast in terms of potential capital growth for the short to medium term is considered to be within Dundowran Beach and entry levels homes along the Esplanade.

“Executive homes on larger lot sizes between 2,000 and 4,000 square metres are generally available in Wondunna, Urangan and Urraween above $450,000.

“Improvements mostly include 4- to 5-bedroom homes built within the past ten years, with a pool, granny flat or shed,” the report stated.

A four bedroom 2006 sqm house at 8 Kingston Close, Wondunna (above) has been listed from $500,000.

Rural residential properties appeals to certain sectors of the market Herron Todd White advises.

“Rural residential property on lot sizes between two and four hectares close to Hervey Bay appeals to a certain market sector seeking space for horses and other livestock.

“In most instances there are no reticulated water or sewage services which can be a deterrent.

“Hervey Bay Esplanade unit prices are considered to be very reasonable overall, after a long steady recline over the past seven to eight years.

“In the current market $500,000 is likely to buy an upper level 2- to 3-bedroom modern unit with good ocean views in a circa 2005 to 2008 complex with extensive common improvements.

“You can expect to achieve high value for money in Maryborough, with property over $400,000 generally being renovated Queenslanders which have been finished to a high standard.

“There are also some well appointed homes on larger sites in the fringe suburb of Tinana.

A renovated three bedroom house at 56 Dunford Road East, Maryborough West (below) has been listed for over $499,000.
