House Prices in Cairns

Are The House Prices in Cairns Increasing?

Cairns is one of Queensland’s most popular destinations for those looking for a new start in a truly tropical home. Tourists visit for the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest, but residents of the city have enjoyed the boon of increased investment in infrastructure, job creation and house building that have made Cairns a destination city for those who want to escape the ‘normal’ 9-5 but still be in reach of all the important things (like Gallo Dairyland).

Cairns house prices have been on the increase, while still being significantly lower than the bigger cities. With the current median house price in Cairns at $376,000 (according to Property Value), and a steady increase year on year, buying a house in Cairns is a good investment – whether as a family home, or as a rental property.

Here at Cairns Quality Homes we know that the savvy investor or first home buyer keeps an eye on Cairns house prices to judge the best time to buy or sell a property – and with our handy guide you can see for yourself why it is a great idea to get involved in property in Cairns right now.

What Is It Like To Live In Cairns?

The juxtaposition of city living with rainforest is what makes Cairns so desirable. All the convenience you need for your daily life, with entertainment, shopping, and schools on the doorstep – but a skyline of trees rather than faceless high rises. If you love the fresh air and being outdoors, the beach, parks and nature reserves across the city and the region will be perfect for you.

Glorious white sand beaches attract the sun worshippers, and the pace of life reflects the easy-going attitude that comes from a whole demographic of young, relaxed, and happy people.

Culture is growing in the area, with numerous theatres and museums available to suit all tastes. From art to ballet, and the $71 million Cairns Performing Arts Centre is not the only place for a slice of culture.

Quiet leafy suburbs can be found a bit further out from the CBD, with glorious, large homes surrounded by parkland and stunning views. Families love the great access to schools, with each suburb having access to well-regarded education. For those who love being in the centre of the action, units in the city are available – well-built and a good size to suit young couples or singletons.

Employment has grown in the area, with the increase in tourism offering more jobs – so there may not be a need for a long commute to one of the bigger cities for work. This inclusivity draws the residents together, and a sense of community is a popular draw for all residents in Cairns.

Of course, the tourists come to Cairns for the location – but that is also what makes it a great place to live. Even at the height of the tourist season, there are so many beautiful places and historical sites to visit that even the long-term residents can discover something new. Mountains, mangrove swamps and rainforests are all a short distance away.
