Residential Market Overview

The Gold Coast apartment market has continued its consistent growth in 2021 with sales figures continuing to trend upwards.

This demand has stemmed from strong local and interstate investment with elevated dwelling prices in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne seeing people gravitate to the affordability the Gold Coast provides.

This combined with low interest rates and travel restrictions has made South East Queensland one of the most desirable living destinations. A contraction in rental availability and affordability within central Gold Coast, also presents Broadbeach with a strong case for investment.
