Your Focus Market and Property

and this is why...

In this section we briefly summarize what we know about you as an investor, which we put together from the information we’ve received from your client form, our discussions, and the communication we’ve had with your broker. We want to make sure that this is the right information, and if you feel there is some information which we’ve missed, we would like to know so that we can add this into the search brief.



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.

Livingstone Shire is bounded by the South Pacific Ocean in the north-east and east, the Rockhampton Regional Council area in the south, the Central Highlands Regional Council area in the south-west, and the Isaac Regional Council area in the north-west.

Livingstone is home to more than 37,000 residents. The major centres include the coastal towns of Yeppoon and Emu Park, with the smaller settlements of Byfield, Farnborough, Cawarral, Keppel Sands, Glenlee, Glendale, The Caves, Yaamba, Marlborough, Stanage Bay and Ogmore making up Livingstone.

Livingstone Shire includes significant rural and rural-residential areas and growing urban areas. The Shire encompasses a total land area of about 11,800 square kilometres, including national parks, state forests, coastline, islands and beaches. The main urban centre is Yeppoon, with a smaller urban centre at Emu Park. 

Non-Indigenous people are recorded to have lived in what is now known as Livingstone from 1853. Livingstone was first established as a Local Government in 1879, and then amalgamated with three other councils to become Rockhampton Regional Council in 2008. After a deamalgamation process driven by community feedback, Livingstone Shire Council was re-established on 1 January 2014.

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 5.78%

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.

-1.63% 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 -70.3% to 9 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 44.4% 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 37.5% 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.
