Ongoing project development in Coolangatta and its surrounding suburbs for the first half of 2017 is valued at approximately $19.6 million, of which more than half (57.7%) is to be spent on residential dwellings. This is followed by infrastructure (25.5%) and mixed use developments (10.2%).

Positively, rentals in Coolangatta recorded a very low average vacancy rate of 0.3% throughout December 2016, with the low rate suggesting that there is consistent high demand for rental properties, in turn signifying a healthy investment environment.

median rent for units in Coolangatta has enjoyed a rising trend over the past year, sitting at $413 per week in the final quarter of 2016. House rent has experienced a slight decrease to $480 per week.

The average amount of days rental properties have sat on the market has stayed under 31 days over the past year, with houses currently sitting at a low 24 days and units at 19 days.
