With new infrastructure projects, a popular pro-growth Mayor and suite of international events booked for the coming months and years, the Gold Coast has undoubtedly become one of the most sought after destinations for developers eager to explore new opportunities outside of the traditional Melbourne and Sydney markets.
Within the past month, an extraordinary number of both development approved and development potential projects have been listed on Development Ready, with those within the Inner-Southport and surrounds typically comprising medium-density apartment opportunities, whilst further out in suburbs such as Robina and Coomera are seeing larger-scale land subdivisions being released.
Depending upon who you speak to, growth and business sentiment is rapidly moving toward Pre-GFC levels, and in some instances beyond, whilst median values of properties have risen to become $580,000 for houses and $380,000 for units according to CoreLogic.
The enviable lifestyle on offer across the Gold Coast, combined with booming tourism numbers and a growing appetite amongst new digital, retail and hospitality businesses has led to a revitalisation of the regions' fortunes in recent times.
