Centralian Advocate, Friday, August 7, 2009 23 P U B : C A D V D A T E : 7 -A U G -2 0 0 9 P A G E : 2 3 C O L O R : C M Y K Our market is very strong David Forrest at his desk at Frampton First National Real Estate. Properties may be worth more The good news coming acrossfrom the East Coast about a real estate recovery is great to hear according to Frampton First National Real Estate director David Forrest. He said: Latest figures are showing that we have probably seen the worst there, but what about Alice Springs? The truth is that we have not seen the tough times they have experienced, and in fact our market has continued to be buoyant. In fact we have prospered while they have suffered. So what does this mean to those of us who own real estate in Alice Springs? Simply put it means that the property is worth more today than it probably was when the WEC hit the rest of the world. This supports our theory that investing in real estate in Alice Springs is a smart investment strategy. Mr Forrest said it did not matter if it was a family home or an investment property. In fact, he said, investors reaped a double benefit as rental returns were good in Alice Springs and vacancy rates low underpinning the income you hope to achieve. This is all good news for owners who are looking to sell their property, as it is a sellers market with strong buyer inquiry for almost all sectors of the market. Mr Forrest said: So if you are thinking of selling or would like an updated appraisal of your propertys likely selling price on todays market call one of the 8 Parke Crescent Home thats sure to charm Sure to charm with its spectacular views, salt-water inground pool and exciting entertaining possibilities, the three-bedroom home at 8 Parke Crescent is unique. A motivated vendor has reduced the asking price and is keen for a quick sale. First home buyers would do well to take advantage of the Commonwealth Governments First Home Owners Boost to $14,000 before it is due to elapse on September 30. Away from the main road and sitting on a very big 1050sqm allotment, in a surprisingly quiet street, the original dwelling has benefited from the addition of a third bedroom upstairs. Ochre tiles laid throughout the living areas give the home a feeling of warmth and homeliness. Through an archway is the kitchen, next to the dining area, with a short hallway leading to the double-sized main bedroom with walk-in wardrobe.
