“If only” – one of the most agonising expressions in the English language; a wistful, regretful term that acknowledges that if we only know then, what we know now with the benefit of hindsight, wouldn’t we all be a lot wiser in our decision-making. Certainly, this expression is often used in relation to the growth of property prices. One only has to look at the dollar value of the change in median house prices in Mount Coolum and its immediate neighbours, to demonstrate that property in this area is a very attractive capital investment, particularly in the longer term.
Median Price 2008 Median Price 2018 $ Difference
Mount Coolum: $457,000 $592,500 $135,000
Marcoola: $455,000 $587,500 $132,500
Yaroomba: $475,000 $765,000 $290,000
Coolum Beach: $499,500 $670,000 $170,500
For those of you who still haven’t purchased in this area, the good news is that the long-term forecast is very positive; if you purchase today you will still enjoy strong capital growth over time, as this is a key lifestyle destination that offers so much appeal – a stunning coastline, close to the airport, national parks, wonderful climate, and a relaxed welcoming community. Get on board!
Finally, HAPPY EASTER to you all. Safe travels to those on the roads. We will be closed on Good Friday March 30 and Easter Monday April 2.
