Your Focus Market and Property

and this is why...

Hi Soji, please see the property presentation below. This property has come to us and we think it aligns with your goals. I feel that an offer of $360,00 would be a strong price negotiation to secure the property. The current rental appraisal would be approx. $420 – 450 pw yielding approx. 6.5%.



Targeting locations which will grow in value by understanding what these push and pull factors are, when they will occur and how long they are due to last is what allows us to make assumptions for strong market growth.

Our methodology aligns with a number of different driving factors. Some of these include government funding, economic uplifting projects, infrastructure introduction, flanking market affects and more. However, the underlying factors comes down to a couple of basic principals, supply and demand from population movement and demographic demand.

In proud partnership with Australia's top property economists. We formulate specific data reports based on our client's requirements and the markets we shop in. Our partners have been awarded the Innovation Patent Housing Market Prediction Solution, which predicts housing price changes at suburb level up to ten years into the future.

your Hot market


Rockhampton and its property market has been largely unaffected by the pandemic and indeed has benefited from the Exodus to Affordable Lifestyle which has been enhanced by the virus lockdown phases. These attributes, plus a roll-out of numerous major construction projects, is turning Rockhampton into a magnet for southern migrants and first-home buyers. 

Property prices have been rising throughout 2020 but remain highly affordable and vacancies are tight – mostly below 0.5%.

Rockhampton’s diverse economy is being boosted by the resources sector with construction of the Adani coal mine well under way. In the last 12 months, contracts totaling $1.5 billion have been awarded to local operators. Other projects lifting the economy include the transformation of the CBD,  upgrades totaling $1 billion to major transport routes, the $2.5 billion redevelopment of the Australia-Singapore Military Training centre at Shoalwater Bay and the emergence of new industrial estates. 

Considered the ‘Beef Capital’ of Australia, Rockhampton is also the gateway to Capricorn Coast tourist attractions and a centre for manufacturing, mining and the military.

Overall, Rockhampton presents as an affordable market with good growth prospects. The Queensland Infrastructure Plan published by the State Government nominates  Rockhampton as the primary service centre for Central Queensland (with Gladstone as the industrial hub). Overall, Rockhampton presents as an affordable market with good growth prospects.

Market Conditions

10.7% median market growth in 1 year

The markets movement over the past year, paired with supportive driving data shows us there is good growth to come. 

The current rental yield in the market is 6.59%

As we are looking for a positively geared property, yielding will need to be considered. We can expect this to rise due to the supporting data.

-3.90% vendor discounting shows us an understanding of the market's performance

As properties begin to grow in value, vendors are realising the interest in the market and discounting less and negotiations begin to tighten up.

Days on market have reduced since October 2020 by -20.0% to 40 days.

A reduction in days on markets indicates that pent up demand is causing property in the areas to sell at vendors expectations, which empowers the local property economy.

The number of new listings has increased by 18.1% in the last year

The increase of new listings coming onto onto the market shows that vendors are wanting a piece of the action and are willing to gauge the market.

Stock on market has increased by 15.5% over the last year

As vendors begin to realise the markets potential, savvy owners are putting their properties on the market to get in on the action. This is expected to turn in the next 4 to 6 month as values rise.
