Appeal of residential communities
Property buyers are keen to purchase house and land deals.
As the economic climate continues to evolve around changes brought by COVID-19, businesses and industries too have had to look at ways to adapt.
The real estate industry, for example, has transitioned to online ways of providing different avenues for clients and agents.
For Townsville's Maidment Group, the shift towards being more accessible online has been nothing but positive, according to Nick Ryle, the company's general manager.
"It's incredibly encouraging to see how the team at Maidment Group have come together and remains committed to servicing buyers in the local market who are actively looking to purchase property during the COVID-19 pandemic," he said.
"We are finding buyers are much more informed about the purchasing process before they even make contact, because their ability to access information has never been easier.
"As a result, our team is experiencing a shift, where buyers know more about what they want before they step through the front door of one of our sales office or they inspect a property. Because of this sales activity continues across the group, from land, new homes and established homes."
Last weekend, the land sales team executed multiple contracts across all three of their residential communities.
"(Although) there is some uncertainty in the market, clients with secure employment are keen to purchase house and land at historical low interest rates given it's cheaper then renting," Mr Ryle said.
