Dean Dank. Picture: Zak SimmondsHOME owners in Thuringowa Central are selling their properties for closer to the asking price than anywhere else in Townsville.The latest CoreLogic data shows that sellers in Thuringowa Central are only discounting their asking price by 2.9 per cent to sell a property, well below the Townsville average vendor discount of 7.6 per cent.Explore Property Townsville principal Dean Dank recently sold 2 Gibson Court in Thuringowa Central for $285,000, only $4000 below the asking price and a vendor discount of 1.8 per cent.Mr Dank said the property was bought by a young couple who were attracted to the property’s location because it was close to Willows Shopping Centre and other services.He said sellers in Thuringowa Central had often bought their property before the resources boom and therefore had more realistic price expectations resulting in a lower vendor discount.“They are likely to have paid less for the property and therefore they are more willing to accept where the market is compared to other areas where people only bought seven or eight years ago and paid a lot more,” he said.Properties in Thuringowa Central are also only taking 34 days to sell compare to the Townsville average of 66 days.More from news01:21Buyer demand explodes in Townsville’s 2019 flood-affected suburbs12 Sep 202001:21‘Giant surge’ in new home sales lifts Townsville property market10 Sep 2020The second lowest vendor discounting was recorded in Idalia at 4.2 per cent followed by Townsville City at 4.5 per cent.Mr Dank said it was important sellers used an experienced agent to help them appropriately price a property to avoid either large vendor discounts or a house sitting on the market for a long time.“Make sure the agent can provide evidence of why the property should be a certain price,” he said.“You really want to be close to what the property is worth because if it’s on the market for an extended period of time it can have a real impact on the selling price.“Buyers think that no-one else wants the property and there must be something wrong with it.”CoreLogic senior research analyst Cameron Kusher said vendor discounting levels in regional Queensland as a whole had shown very little change in the past year.He said this was indicative of market conditions which had been fairly steady in recent years.“It also reflects the fact that vendors realise when conditions are soft there is a need to adjust prices to meet the market,’’ he said.
Hammed Shittu in IlorinThe management of Ilorin Golf Club has finalised arrangement to partner the Kwara State government in the setting up of a golf academy in Ilorin.The newly re-elected Captain of the club, Alhaji Mustapha Malik, disclosed this in Ilorin over the weekend while speaking with journalists.Malik said that the golf academy which will be almost cost free to its students would be for future professional golfers after enrolling at the academy from the age of seven. The captain also disclosed that during his tenure, he and his management team would introduce the young children to join the game of golf and register with just a token of N10,000 membership fee as against the current N150.000 now being charged to at the club.He explained that the club will also purchase about ten golf kits and hire them out to the young kids at a cost of just N100 per game which is meant for those between the age of 17 and 30.Malik also announced plans by his leadership to revive the Kwara Open Tournament as the management of the club is already in talking terms with the Kwara state government which will be the major sponsor of the tournament.The captain revealed that the Kwara Open Tournament will attract over one thousand golfers to Ilorin the state capital for the anticipated four day event which will in turn not only boost the economy of the state but will further open Kwara to the international community.He described the game of golf as the game that is meant to exercise the entire body including the brain, eyes, arms and the legs to be at alert while it is always difficult for a golfer to be hypertensive since his/her major focus is on how to put the ball into the hole.Malik however corrected the misconception that golf is meant for only the elites or the rich in the society, adding that what the game entails is interest.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
