Townsville’s top family suburb

For Leader Realestate feature 15JAN18ALICE River has been named as the most popular place for families to live in Townsville but the suburb does not come cheap, costing about $469,000 to buy a home.The semi-rural suburb was named as the top area for families in a report released by Aussie and Core Logic.Census data and housing market statistics were used to determine the most popular locations for families and the typical cost of purchasing a home in those areas.In Alice River, 58.7 per cent of households had children while the median house value was $468,831, well above the Townsville median house price of $340,000.Alice River has mostly acreage blocks and contains the popular Mount Margaret estate.In second place was Mount Low with 56.2 per cent of family households while the cost of owning a home was significantly lower with the median house value at $353,323.Rounding out the top three was Bushland Beach with 56.1 per cent of family households and a median house value of $374,285.Ray White Kirwan agent Craig Currie, who specialises in the Alice River area, said families could have a big block in Alice while still being close to amenities.“You get a bit of extra space out here and a bit more freedom as well as extra storage for all the toys,” he said.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 2020“It’s a really good community and only around 10 per are rentals. The rest is owner-occupiers.”Mr Currie said Alice River also hadn’t experienced the crash in property prices of other Townsville suburbs.He attributes the hardy market to the high number of owner-occupiers who have held on to their properties during the downturn compared with investors, who wanted to get out and were selling at a loss in suburbs closer to the city. According to Core Logic housing statistics, the median price of a house in Townsville has gone down by 2 per cent whereas in Alice River the median house price has jumped 7.3 per cent. Mount Margaret development manager Shane Martin said Alice River offered an idyllic lifestyle for families.“There are big blocks out here for a start and every neighbourhood has its own playground,” he said.“There is a low crime rate out here and it’s just has that vibe of being a really family-oriented area.”According to the report, 71 per cent of all households nationwide are characterised as families or households where the occupants are related by blood, marriage, adoption, step or fostering.The report focused on areas around Australia, including Townsville, that are most popular with families with children whether it be couples with children or single-parent families.last_img read more
