first_imgThis house at 3 Mabel St at Redcliffe will be going to auction on August 6CoreLogic data shows the median house sales price in Redcliffe is $441,000. The Sydney median house sales price is $985,000 and for Melbourne it is $745,000The cheapest property currently listed in Sydney is a one bedroom apartment for $1.02 million.Thermo King managing director Roger Partington splits his time between Melbourne and his wife’s house in Brisbane.Together they have purchased a sky home off-the-plan at Banc in Toowong for “north of $3 million”. REA Group chief economist Nerida Conisbee“I think a lot of people are looking to move up there,” she said. “They are making a lifestyle decision rather than a career decision and recognise the value for money they can get there over Sydney.”The suburbs with the most hits by would-be interstate escapees were Brisbane, Surfers Paradise, Buderim, Southport, Broadbeach, Burleigh Heads, Caloundra, Palm Beach, Maroochydore and Redcliffe.Victorian residents accounted for 740,406 searches of the Queensland property market, with those searches concentrated on Surfers Paradise (11,224), Broadbeach (9154) and Burleigh Heads (5198).Ms Conisbee said their data showed that Victorians often identified more with Tasmania than Queensland.Tasmania was responsible for the third highest number of hits with 200,039 searches of Queensland properties, with the folk from the Apple Isle keen to make the move to Surfers Paradise, Brisbane City or Caloundra.Those from South Australia (170,784 hits) were also focussing their search on the Brisbane and Gold Coast markets, while the majority of searches out of Western Australia (150,978) were in Brisbane City (1129).Northern Territory residents accounted for 45,754 searches across the state. Ms Conisbee said many of those looking to make the move to Queensland were unlikely to be deterred by a long commute after being stuck in traffic jams in southern capitals.“Redcliffe for example is 28km from the city and that would not seem bad to someone from say Sydney,” she said.More from news02:37International architect Desmond Brooks selling luxury beach villa15 hours ago02:37Gold Coast property: Sovereign Islands mega mansion hits market with $16m price tag2 days ago“I would say many of those looking there would see that distance and not be turned off as they would probably be stuck in traffic in Sydney for hours anyway.”In total, Redcliffe recorded 10,766 property hits by interstate property searchers, with more than 6000 of those from NSW. Mr Partington said the sprawling apartment had spectacular views of the city, the Brisbane River and Mount Coot-tha. “That type of property would have been out of reach in Melbourne,” he said. “We are very excited to move in. “Our Brisbane base is at Darra so it is an easy run up the Centenary Highway, the City Cat is just outside the door, we are close to The Regatta, Park Road, it just ticks so many boxes.”Place Kangaroo Point agent Simon Caulfield said they had sold eight apartments at Banc in six months alone, with a total value of $20 million.
