Should i buy in Gladstone?

Currently living in Gladstone at the moment and i am in full time employment there. Having come from the UK i have no idea of the housing market here. It seems it is a boom and bust town. However, the prices are so low right now that i am not sure if they can get any lower.

I intend on living there for a good few years and wouldn't mind my own place. I just want to know everyone's thoughts on which way the market is heading in Gladstone.

Is it recovering? is it to fall further?

any help is much appreciated

Predicting based on Trade

Hi Lukeyboy,

Gladstone is primarily a port and mining town with its main source of income coming from Coal and Alumina.

It is currently exporting to Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, India, Italy and France for high-quality steel manufacturing.

It is in its infancy stage and the property prices would be stagnant for the next 3 years. You can only expect property prices in Gladstone to start rising in 2022.
But if you are currently renting and intend to stay for those 3 years, I recommend buying a property instead of paying for someone else's mortgage.
