Michael Kues-Sales who owns two houses in Kirwan, having recently purchased his second property, said the standard of houses in the area were good value.
“Kirwan is outside of the CBD but it’s still convenient in terms of being close to everything,” Mr Kues-Sales said.
“It’s also a clean and tidy suburb compared to others.
“I have one investment property in Kirwan and one that I live in, I did look around at other suburbs but in terms of value, the houses are definitely more modern and need less work than the ones in other areas.”
Ray White Kirwan agent Craig Pearce who sold the property to Mr Kues-Sales in Kirwan said the suburb offered plenty of variety for buyers.
“Buyers are looking for top value for their money and Kirwan home prices now offer quality homes in great neighbourhoods for prices not seen for some time,” Mr Pearce said.
“Kirwan is Townsville’s largest suburb, and as such, it always sells a larger number of homes.
“This means buyers have a varied selection of house types to choose from, be it older high sets built-in under and beautiful floorboards, up to today’s modern block and render homes with the newest features.”
