Iluka's million dollar buys
THE town of Iluka has just three properties currently listed for more than a million dollars, but LJ Hooker licensee Christina Nipperess thinks more are coming soon.
"We just sold a block of land for $770,000, and when you put a residential dwelling on it, I believe a price above $1million would be in line with buyer interest," she said.
"More and more are popping up."
Ms Nipperess said that many people who previously came from areas such as Byron or Lennox for holiday are now seriously looking at the town as a place to move.
"Those places are getting too overrun, and a lot of their old locals are seeing Iluka as more of the home they want to return to," she said.
"Our buyers have tended to come mostly from southeast Queensland, but now they're coming from further down the coast as well."
Ms Nipperess said the property market had been extremely busy in the area, and had only just settled recently in this winter period.
"Last winter it was just flat out, it did not stop," she said.
"Now, while I'm still showing quite a few buyers through, it has settled in this winter period.
"That could just be the end of the financial year, and I wouldn't be surprised if it picks up again shortly."
LJ Hooker has a set of units that top the magic number, listed at $1.1 million.
Comprised of four units at 80 Charles St with gross returns of $55,640, Ms Nipperess said they are an excellent prospect for return at the pricepoint.
"Two of the units are pretty much brand new and they're going to be maintenance free for years to come," she said.
"There is the option to strata title as well, so you can live there and enjoy all the best of Iluka and still have that income stream."
