Place Graceville's 2018 Wrap-Up

Friday December 21, 2018 ● By Laura Sinclair // Place Graceville


Place Graceville reflects on their experience with the real estate market in 2018, for both sales and rentals, and provides insight into 2019.

On behalf of the entire team at Place Graceville, we wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a safe, enjoyable holiday season.

Thank You for the Year

A big thank you goes out to the amazing communities we work within, across the Western Suburbs of Brisbane, that have helped us have our best year on record. As a team, some 2,241 open homes were conducted, that allowed us to help 448 families either buy or sell.

The Place Graceville property management team won the number one rental team within the entire Place Group. A true accolade achieved by having the lowest rental arrears, the smallest vacancy periods and the fastest turnaround of properties.

All up, between buyers, sellers, landlords and tenants, we’re proud to say we helped almost 1000 people find their happy place in 2018.


One of our core values is Community; and in 2018 our team strove to give even more. Whether it be supporting a school fete, local fundraisers, sporting groups, charity auctions, fun runs, giving blood or community events like Halloween or a Christmas Appeal - our philosophy is that we give back to the community that give us so much.

This fundamental value will not change in 2019. Already, our team has recommitted to schools and sporting groups, providing them certainty into the New Year, they know our support can be relied upon.

2019 Outlook

As we move into 2019, property owners that are considering selling get an amazing opportunity that largely goes unnoticed. Both realestate.com.au and domain.com.au report January as one of the busiest months of the year for traffic on their respective sites.

With a consistent wave of job transfers, interstate migration, families moving to get closer to their preferred school, January is a great time to sell. Unfortunately agents and sellers often wait until February, when less buyers are looking and there’s more competition.

The Place Graceville team understands this trend and while other agencies are on holiday, we will be proactive from the 5th January giving our clients the opportunity to showcase their home during this prosperous period.

If you’re considering selling, give Place Graceville a call on 07 3379 4311. Speak to your favourite Place agent and we will help you catch the first wave of summer buyers.

From the entire team here at Place Graceville, we would like to wish you all the very best over this festive season, and together, let’s make 2019 the best year yet.
