Want the inside word on the Ipswich property market? Five agents get the ball rolling by telling us why people are making the move to Ipswich.
Trent Quinn, ithink Property:

“The latest Population Growth and Forecast report from Matuski has identified Ipswich as a leading growth suburb in South-East Queensland. The city is experiencing an influx of new residents looking to take advantage of the benefits of Ipswich – the relaxed town feel balanced against everything a large regional centre has to offer. With this, as well as being strategically located to Brisbane, Toowoomba and the Gold and Sunshine coasts, why wouldn’t you live here? This population growth has also led to an increase in the median sale price of residential real estate in Ipswich.”

Amie Palmer, Ray White Ipswich:

“There is a huge amount of activity and buyer interest in Ipswich due to the lack of affordability in Brisbane. We are seeing a high demand on all stock, particularly renovator protects and entry level homes. Buyers that come out to explore Ipswich are consistently amazed by the infrastructure and retail developments. Non-local buyers are recognising that it is a fantastic and resourceful place to live and is only a stone’s throw from Brisbane. Affordability is a key point of difference so there is a lot of diversity among what buyers are looking for and options are plentiful.”

Glenn Ball, First National Action Realty Ipswich:

“Ipswich is trending throughout Australia as people recognise our great city as a place to live, not just invest. Ipswich buyers in 2017 were initially attracted to our city due to our achievable real estate prices, but it only took one visit for them to fall in love with our period homes, heritage buildings, expanding nightlife and diverse community. Buyers and first time investors are impressed and envious of our unique community spirit and our large array of community events, a key factor when deciding to buy in Ipswich, especially for families and young professionals.”

Valerie Fall, Realway Property Consultants Ipswich:

“The secret is out, Ipswich is a fantastic place to call home. We are living in exciting times for real estate right here in our city. Our market is strong, we are experiencing a tremendous amount of growth and expansion, and we’re situated in an easily accessible location. Our city is attracting many people from all parts of the country to come and live here with us. If you’re looking to sell your property now is a definitely a great time, with all categories of potential buyers looking to purchase. Popular areas that are in constant demand are Flinders View, Raceview, Yamanto and Deebing Heights.”

Jason McNamara, Ipswich Real Estate:

“The Ipswich property market is certainly on the rise. I’ve sold more than 20 houses in the past seven months and a lot of them have been sold to out of towners and inter-state buyers. For years I’ve been pushing the benefits of living in this awesome city and people are now starting to catch on. We have the best variety of classic Queenslander homes here in Ipswich. People are shocked when they come and visit and see we have entire suburbs filled with heritage homes. On top of all that we also have amazing cafes and of course … The Pumpyard.”
