After a short break the team here at Wright Place are back at work and fired up for a busy and prosperous 2019. We had a bumper year in 2018, and we are looking forward to continuing the momentum for the next 12 months and beyond.
There’s a lot of talk in the media at the moment about the state of the property market, particularly the downturn in Sydney and Melbourne, and some of this reporting does create some jitters in the local market; however, we have seen no evidence of any downturn in the Mount Coolum market, and in fact, the wider Sunshine Coast market. Quite the opposite, our region is one of the nation’s star performers.
Billions of dollars of public and private sector investment in this region including the expansion of the airport (just down the road), are creating employment opportunities which is attracting new residents to the area. The optimism in the future of this region has never been more positive, and this has a knock-on effect of attracting increasing numbers of investors, drawn to its growth and shiny economic outlook.
The lifestyle we enjoy here is also a major driver in attracting purchasers from other parts of Queensland, as well as interstate. Our property is more affordable than Sydney and Melbourne, reflecting better value for money, and with an increasing number of people now working from home…there is less need to live near your place of employment. We also have better weather and a more relaxed way of life – we know it’s paradise here, and the word is getting out…
People want to live here, and who could blame them!
