Residents take to the skies with LJ Hooker

Two Far North Queensland residents are set to take to the skies this year, courtesy of LJ Hooker.

Over summer, anyone who listed their home for sale or placed their investment property with a Far North Queensland LJ Hooker office had the chance to win Flight Centre travel prizes.

John and Caroline Hardy listed and sold their Freshwater home with Vanessa Robinson of LJ Hooker Cairns Edge Hill, earning themselves a $10,000 Fight Centre voucher in the process from a random draw. Meanwhile, Russell Henry, landlord of a Warrami investment property, won a $2,500 Flight Centre travel voucher for placing his property under the management of LJ Hooker Tully.

LJ Hooker Queensland North Regional Manager John Farren-Price said the holiday offer had been exceptionally well received by the marketplace.

“There’s been healthy amounts of interest from buyers in the marketplace,” said Mr Farren-Price.

“Continued record-low interest rates have encouraged optimism from buyers. We haven’t seen major price growth in the FNQ marketplace yet, but properties are definitely spending less time on the market than they were a year ago.”

Mr Farren-Price said real estate was offering better yields, by comparison, than many other investment classes.
“The Australian Dollar has dropped about 20 per cent compared to the US Dollar over the last three years which has benefitted FNQ’s tourism sector and created demand for quality rental properties,” he said.

“LJ Hooker’s property managers are leaders in the field and ready to help any landlord realise the true potential of their asset.”
