I doubt they will boom like they did but after a big decline we are seeing commodity prices lift and more demand for workers in some of these areas,” he said.Mr Kusher said while values were down, many of the towns could still achieve decent rental yields — a positive for investors.“Clearly there is some increasing demand from buyers and renters,” he said.The cheapest house-style accommodation in the Brisbane Greater Region is a one bedroom, one bathroom, relocatable home at Durack, which is on the market for $93,000.And in Sydney, even the most rundown fixer-upper will set you back upwards of $1 million.Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayNext playlist itemMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 0:41Loaded: 0%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -0:41 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedQuality Levels720p720pHD540p540p360p360p270p270pAutoA, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.
