This property at 45 Goodwin St in Currajong, sold for double the median price of $227,000 for a house in the suburb.
Corelogic data shows Currajong is Townsville’s fourth cheapest suburb to buy a house in alongside Heatley.
Ray White Agent Julie Munro who sold the house said it shows homeowners in Currajong what they can do with their properties.
“45 Goodwin street is a representation of what owners can achieve in the suburb,” Ms Munro said.
“There are not many houses like that for sale on the market in the area.”
Ms Munro said the vendor’s change in situation required the property to sell.
“The sale is an opportunity for the owner to move forward,” she said.
“I think it is the reality of the real estate industry and he needed to sell.”
