SEQ PROPERTY MARKET

The Gold Coast property market has experienced strong property growth over the past years. According to a new CoreLogic report, the Gold Coast recorded the second highest property value growth across regional Queensland in the last financial year.
With experts predicting the only way for the Gold Coast property market to go is up, some of the main Gold Coast property market drivers are population growth, increased job opportunities and the low Australian dollar have all contributed to a better performing Gold Coast property market.
Major developments on the Gold Coast have been transforming the city into what people are refering to as – Australia’s most beautiful city. With a large number of new construction and infrastructure projects, there’s been a higher number of job opportunities becoming available. This helps drives demand and many are moving in to take advantage of the great Gold Coast lifestyle and new job opportunities.
With higher demand, rental prices have been going up leaving many first home buyers looking for ways to get into the property market by taking advantage of the $15,000 Queensland first home owners grant and record low interest rates. Many home buyers are buying off the plan in new estates and developments. This has helped to increase the demand for more construction jobs and increased property prices.
