·2-min read

A one-bedroom Queensland home has hit the market and the asking price is pretty unreal.

Just a 20-minute drive from the heart of Townsville sits the Townsville Eco Resort, a residential and tourist caravan park.

The caravan park is also where the absolute steal of a home is located in Nome, where about 1000 people live.

The permanent on-site caravan is up for sale and the asking price is just $20,000.

"The property consists of a caravan and attached annex both of which are covered by a roof, there's an attached front room and rear awnings that provide extra outdoor living areas," the listing says.

"There's also a self-contained bathroom, laundry and storeroom at the rear, and a single car space to the side."

There is a weekly $186 cost of the site, however, that can be subsidised with rent assistance. There is also an electricity cost, though there is no stamp duty or ouncil rates.

"Buyers looking for a low-cost alternative to buying a property will see the value here," the listing adds.

Townsville Eco Resort also has a community pool and entertainment area, plus there are managers on site. The park is family-owned and managed and promises to be a "relaxed setting".

The home is actually the cheapest home for sale on realestate.com in Queensland right now. The median house price for a home in the Townsville region is around $360,000, according to CoreLogic's Property Value.

The home at Townsville Eco Resort definitely has some appeal, especially when the price is considered.

Recently a derelict home in Sydney, which was once taken over by squatters was listed for over $1 million.

Whereas the Nome home appears to be well maintained, is just minutes away from beaches and is across the road from the Billabong Sanctuary.
