Land price increase on the Sunshine Coast

The November 2017 release of the Regional Radar revealed that the median land price has increased on the Sunshine Coast. The price rose by 8.1% over the last 12 months, to $280,000.  

The Regional Radar also reported that a total 1,707 vacant blocks of land were sold on the Sunshine Coast over the last 12 months.

Branch President Brent Thomas said strong rents were an indicator people wanted to live in the region as well as a sign that more stock is needed.

“The growth in median land price also supports this sentiment,” Brent added.

“We are concerned that short term land supply is an issue on the Sunshine Coast and the branch is actively discussing this with stakeholders.”
