Fig Tree Pocket’s median house price increased by an impressive 26.6 per cent over the past 12 months to $1.22 million, which local agents put down to Legacy Way, the 4.6 kilometre-long tunnel which links the Western Freeway at Toowong and the Inner City Bypass at Kelvin Grove.Pocket, Jason Adcock of Adcock Prestige, who lives and works in Fig Tree Pocket,sold the most expensive house this year in the suburb, 12 Aminga Street, for $6 million. He said Fig Tree Pocket still offered exceptional value compared to its neighbour Indooroopilly and that the decrease in commute time thanks to the tunnel had increased its appeal for many buyers.
“My daughter works in the Valley and she can get there, from our house, in 17 minutes. That’s amazing,” he said.
“What I’m finding is a lot of buyers who want to buy in Indooroopilly are looking at $2 million+ houses and then realising they can get the same place only minutes away in Fig Tree Pocket for $1.4 million.”
