When purchasing an investment property, remember the golden rule of real estate “location, location, location”. At SX Homes, we believe no area embodies this rule quite like the Sunshine Coast. In addition to being a tourist hub, the Sunshine Coast has something to offer everyone, from young families and singles to retirees.
Property investment on the Sunshine Coast is very desirable right now. It is a popular alternative for residential living, as buyers seek an affordable, quality lifestyle outside of the city. With so many seeking a sea change, now is the perfect time to capitalise on the trend with an investment property.
The Sunshine Coast offers a wealth of property investment opportunities – from waterfront apartments for holiday letting in Noosa, Maroochydore and Caloundra, to family homes in scenic hinterland villages, including Montville, Maleny and Mapleton.
And with property prices generally lower than those in Brisbane or other capital cities, Sunshine Coast property is a very wise investment. With median prices set in the high $300,000 region, property investment has never been more affordable.
In addition to affordability, there are many other features unique to the Sunshine Coast which make it a sea/tree change hotspot. Firstly, the Sunshine Coast enjoys a picture perfect climate. With daytime temperatures rarely dropping below 20 ºC, property owners can enjoy an outdoor lifestyle all year round.
Secondly, major investment in education has led to an increase in high quality schools and the continuing development of a well-respected university. This commitment to education has resulted in an increase in job openings in professional sectors, particularly in the accounting, legal and medical fields. In addition, the soon to be opened Sunshine Coast University Hospital will provide high quality health care and employment opportunities to the region.
Finally, as living on the Sunshine Coast is so desirable for everyone from singles to retirees, you will never be short of potential renters for your investment property. While the Coast is ever increasing in popularity, there is a stark shortage of properties to rent. So, if you buy an investment property, you will be guaranteed a steady flow of rental applicants, which will lead to a reliable source of income.
