2016 proved to be a reasonably steady year for Real Estate in Toowoomba. It started off a little slower with investment buyers virtually non-existent. After the Federal election, confidence increased and we saw a small rise in investors as well as owner occupiers. The middle to high end of the market has certainly seen more movement. Going forward to 2017, jobs security is probably the biggest item that is effecting people decisions whether to buy or continue renting. Employment opportunities will continue to increase over the next few years as new factories are built in the Toowoomba Enterprise Area at Charlton/Wellcamp.
