The Gold Coast real estate market is offering would-be investors a golden opportunity to jump in early in order to be prepared to ride the wave BEFORE the price of investment becomes untenable.
Gold Coast property prices are set to lead the way in Queensland by already showing a 6% increase for houses and a 1.9% increase for units.
Gold Coast Specifics – What To Look Out For
As per Brisbane, Gold Coast investment properties come with their own fair share of issues.
• Flooding and wild weather events can be a concern for investors (and their insurances). Check the Gold Coast flood mapping resources to see if this might put a dampener on your investment plans.
• Building and pest inspections are a must in this area due to the presence of the kind of pests and rodents attracted by the humidity and proximity to water. Many of the buildings here are of an age wherein you’ll need to ensure that materials have not become damage or broken down over time.
“It’s vital to get a pest and building inspection done early on in the piece. You’ll save yourself a lot of money and heartache in the long run.” Andrew Macintosh, Owner, Action Inspections.
