Million dollar properties on the market at Trinity Park canals
A REAL estate agent working in Trinity Park has more than half a dozen million-dollar properties on the market.
FNQ Hot Property principal Nathan Shingles said the waterfront properties in the suburb had asking prices ranging from $1 million to $3.2 million.
“They seem expensive for Cairns, but they’re really good value,” he said.
“Having your own boat right out the front so you can hit the Great Barrier Reef in minutes really adds value to these homes, particularly for southerners.”
Mr Shingles said it was uncommon for residents to be able to buy into such a small canal area.
“It’s really a unique canal estate here because it’s one of the smallest in the country,” he said.
“You only have 120-odd properties here, and they’re not cookie cutter homes. They’re all built by different architects.”
He said despite the luxury feel of these homes, most of the owners are full-time residents.
“Generally we have owner-occupiers buy these homes, and they move up from down south,” he said.
“It can be a bit slow sometimes, but other times we sell quickly – even off-market. The price bracket does limit the market a bit.”
Mr Shingles said there were several levels of property available to buy in the Trinity Park area.
“We have some properties asking for offers over $3.2 million, but our best price is for offers over $1.1 million,” he said.
“The things that set them apart are the different luxury fixtures and fittings.”
But even though the houses boast the best in designer architecture, Mr Shingles says these are homes that are perfect for regular couples and families who want to live in Trinity Park.
“FNQ Hot Property has been here for 10 years and we’ve seen how the community works,” he said.
“People who live here want to know their neighbours and really enjoy each other’s company.”
