A Hervey Bay home has broken a price record in the area, with buyers attracted to its modern finish and views of the water.
The deal saw 513 Esplanade, Urangan, sell for $1.45 million on Monday, RE/MAX Partners Hervey Bay-Torquay agent Stephen Wright confirmed. He marketed the property with daughter Laura Wright.

“We had plenty of interest and enquiries in this home as it was modern and on the Esplanade,” he said.
“We only had inspections by appointment with pre-qualified buyers,” he said. “Most (interested buyers) simply didn’t have the budget. (There were) quite a few around the $1m mark though and others not quite ready to buy.”
He said the target audience for such a property was mainly non-local.
“Being part of a global network across 110 countries we spread the word far and wide in multiple languages, we had overseas interest as well as interest from further North in Queensland and interstate.”
The eventual successful offer came from Queensland buyers who had been looking “for some time”, he said.
“I had buyers from New Zealand in this week kicking themselves. The property attracted a high price because it is modern and well-constructed, to commercial standards in some aspects. It was marketed as a luxury property.”
