Maryborough Property Update 2nd Half of 2020
In Q3 2020, Maryborough recorded a median house price of $230,000, which represents a median price growth of 3.4% over the past 12 months (Q3 2019 – Q3 2020). During the same period, total sales slightly softened by -1.7%, recording 118 sales. This could be due to a combination of low stock and/or COVID-19 restrictions. That said median price growth amidst COVID-19 shows the resilience within regional markets, as well as potentially with an undersupply in the near future. Now is an ideal time to sell in Maryborough, particularly as there is a shortage in near future residential developments.
