NSW buyers trigger spike in Broadbeach apartment values

NSW buyers trigger spike in Broadbeach apartment values
Staff reporterDecember 7, 2020

Apartments in Broadbeach achieved 5.4% median price growth per annum during the past five years, according to market analysts Urbis.

Urbis found that the suburb's record price growth was bettered by only one capital city, Hobart, which gained 8% per annum.

The result comes on the back of a sharp spike of southern interest in the suburb, in particular from NSW.

Developer Andrews Projects for example reported a 300% increase in interstate enquiries for its Broadbeach towers – many from buyers aged 55-64 years.

The developer is constructing two apartment towers in the suburb, with works having recently commenced on 25-storey Encore Broadbeach and the 25-level Vue Broadbeach due to be delivered later this year.

Andrews Projects Sales Manager Sarah Andrews said interstate buyers were increasingly looking to purchase apartments in Broadbeach on the back of massive infrastructure investment in the suburb.

“We have been overwhelmed by the number of enquiries we’ve received from Sydney and New South Wales property buyers on the hunt for quality apartments in Broadbeach, particularly those aged 55 to 64 years with one eye on their post-retirement lifestyles.”

“Broadbeach has rightly become one of the best performing apartment markets in the country and we are pleased that our two towers will ensure more people get the chance to live in such a vibrant precinct,” she added.

Due for completion in late 2019, the $75 million Vue Broadbeach at 10-12 First Avenue, Broadbeach (pictured in title) features 71 apartments across 25 levels, with its penthouse having already fetched $5 million.

Meanwhile, Encore Broadbeach, which is located at 36-38 Britannia Avenue (pictured above), will feature 84 apartments with ocean and city skyline views.

Floor-to-ceiling double-glazed windows will wrap the entire building.

Due for completion in late 2020/early 2021, two and three-bedroom ocean view apartments are now selling from $599,000.
