Brisbane's sales market, Highgate Hill

Land snapped up

The views from 152 Dornoch Terrace

It’s rare to find vacant land in Highgate Hill and opportunities to build a new home don’t come up often. The development of Brydon Street (after a controversial battle with the local community a number of years back) provided around 26 new lots and all but 3 of them are now built on.

So the last couple of listings of land have generated some strong enquiry. We’ve just sold a post-war house in Dornoch Terrace (which isn’t covered by the demolition control precinct) and the number of calls we had was really encouraging. The market’s appetite for an allotment in an elevated location is strong.

Markets come and markets go, but there’s no doubt quality locations retain their appeal where others might falter.
