2017 is predicted to track much the same as 2016 for the northern Gold Coast market, according to HTW’s February 2017 update.

The valuation firm says strong infrastructure investments, including the recent upgrade of Exit 54 and the scheduled commencement of construction of Westfield’s Coomera Shopping Centre, should ensure that demand from both investors and owner occupiers remains strong.

Coomera is a suburb that could be worth watching throughout the year, the report says.

Property types vary from semi-modern two-bedroom units starting in the mid $200,000s to prestige canal front dwellings achieving prices up to $1.8 million.

Coomera Waters is the premier estate in this suburb and is favoured by owner occupiers.

“Rental demand is likely to remain steady to strong with the construction workforce required to complete the impending shopping centre likely to look for accommodation nearby,” HTW says.

“Additionally, the adjoining suburb of Pimpama is likely to experience a flow on effect.”

Pimpama is largely dominated by investment stock, with many new estates either under construction or nearing completion in 2016.

“With such large quantities of rental properties coming on to the market there is a chance of an oversupply if the new stock is not leased within a reasonable letting period.

“Unfortunately, the majority of these house and land packages are sold to investors at rates above market value, which in turn can lead to the purchaser experiencing a loss if the property has to be sold.

“With there being very little difference aesthetically between these investment properties, prices can drop significantly if a large number are to come on to the market at the same time.”

A four bedroom house at 10 Cherry Court, Coomera (above) has been listed for $558,000.

Similarly a five bedroom house at 3 Paradise Drive, Coomera (below) has been listed for $579,000.
