It is great to hear that the Cooloola Coast has had a positive summer on the real estate front.
Andrew Hawkins from Rainbow Beach Realty said “Brisbane started moving 6 months ago and the Sunshine Coast soon after that. We have been watching it come up the coast, and started getting busy 4-5 months ago with increasing enquiries and which has flowed through to higher levels of sales for our office.”
When asked if houses or units were more popular, Andrew said, “It is surprising that both cheaper houses and premium apartments are selling. Those looking for a more premium holiday investment are in the market – we have sold all three of the Rainbow Sea penthouses and are continuing to get contracts on the Plantation Resort.”
He said they had plenty of holiday makers asking about properties, and explained this was a “very positive sign for town, as it shows interest in Rainbow Beach from non locals.”
“For those thinking of getting into the market – you have not missed the boat yet. Prices have not yet started to increase, so there are still bargains to be found.”
