ARE you a first home buyer or investor looking for a bargain in Gladstone?

With the market currently low, now is the perfect time to get out of the rental market and invest for the future.

This home at 5/35 Butler Street, New Auckland could be yours for $95,000.

The recently refurbished two-bedroom unit is fully furnished, and features a relatively new kitchen, air conditioning, built-in wardrobes and a carport.

Raine & Horne agent Michelle Rose said the property was ideal for those looking to buy their first home. "It's a good lead-in for someone wanting to get into the market and into home ownership as opposed to renting," she said.

Mrs Rose said similar units were being sold for a lower price, and that the property may sell for lower than the listed price.

"I'd like to get $95,000 because that's what the owner is looking for, but in this market with similar units being sold for under that, it's probably going to sell for less," she said.

"The fact that it is renovated makes it easier to sell. It doesn't necessarily mean that the property will get more, but it makes it easier because it's more aesthetically appealing."

On the other end of the scale, Villa Real Estate's listing at 6/569 Springs Road, Agnes Water is aiming for a final price tag in the mid-$2 million range.

Villa Real Estate director David A. Perez said the agency had been marketing heavily towards interstate buyers.
