Fortnightly Update (29/07/2021) – Ray White Cairns Beaches

By Rhys Southern

Welcome to this fortnight’s edition of our Newsletter.

The announcement last week by the International Olympic Council that Brisbane has won the right to host the 2032 Olympic Games has already got many in the Southern Capital and the South-East corner of the State very excited (and not only about the Olympic Games).
Property infrastructure and prices are always positively affected by such events. So, what effect may these games and the lead-up time have on the Cairns region?
Few may know that prior to the Australian athlete’s departure for the Tokyo Olympic Games, many from a variety of sports, spent time in Cairns utilising our warm climate to help them adjust to what conditions they were likely to face once in Tokyo. Cairns has been hosting swimmers, athletics, and hockey players as they train for the 2021 Games.
Currently, Cairns does not have a rectangular stadium capable of hosting prominent sporting, music, and entertainment events where up to say, 20,000 people could be accommodated.
The 2032 Olympic Games announcement has put the possibility of such a stadium firmly on the ‘probable’ list of infrastructure to be built regionally to help host the Games. Cairns’ people are certainly hopeful this will be the case!
Within this Edition we will provide information on the following:
– Monday Auction Results – 26th July
– Surfing Resort for Port Douglas
– The Waterview and Waterfront Auction
– Things to Consider When Looking For a Home Loan
– Brisbane Going For Gold – 2032!

Monday Auction Results – 26th July

It was an eventful start to the week with Auctions for Ray White Cairns Beaches, Ray White Smithfield, and Ray White Port Douglas. The Bluewater Tavern at Trinity Park was the idyllic backdrop to two properties selling under the hammer and one extravagant listing under offer after negotiation. An excellent result was achieved for all properties sold:
6 Solander Boulevard, Port Douglas – Sold for $2,595,000.
3 Mount Peter Road, Edmonton – Sold for $460,000.
2/19 Smart Street, Mooroobool – Sold for $284,000.
As lockdowns continue to sweep the country and the ever-present increase in Southern migration, we understand that it is not always possible to attend our auctions in person.
On Monday our Live Auction Bidding and Streaming was in full force, allowing for participants anywhere in Australia to view, register, and of course, bid in auctions as they took place.

Surfing Resort for Port Douglas

Exciting news for Far North Queensland, as a planning submission to build a $317 million dollar surf resort in Port Douglas was announced.
To be named NorthBreak Port Douglas, the proposed development for the Douglas Shire is set to include a wave park, freshwater lagoon, aqua park, and 4.5-star luxury resort apartments that will form the base of the latest attraction to hit the region. While the project has yet to be confirmed, the construction phase of the development has been estimated to create 1,247 full-time jobs with the majority going to local residents in the region.
