Mount Warren Park, Beenleigh and Windaroo are top of the list for buyer interest on the north-west of Gold Coast, according to a recent Herron Todd White (HTW) residential report. 

The report suggests while market activity and in some cases prices have come off a bit in recent months, it is still possible to find a value for money house or unit.

"There are options for those who want to buy and renovate for a profit or rental returns. Some positively geared options are also around," the valuation firm said. 

"The suburbs we have chosen are established older areas, not flooded with redevelopment, new estates or investors."

A on-ground semi modern house in Mount Warren Park has been sold for $230,000 (pictured above). 

The circa 1990 brick house at 14/9 Quinton Court comes with three-bedroom, one-bathroom, tiled roof and single-car garage.

The property includes renovated kitchen, bathroom and new carpets.

It rents for $310 per week with body corporate fees of $40 per week.

The property at 13 Mewing Court, Windaroo comprises a semi modern, on-ground, circa 1992, brick three-bedroom, two-bathroom dwelling with single-car garage and tiled roof.

It includes recent floor coverings and paint with original kitchen and bathrooms. Land area is 622 square metres. Property rents for $390 per week.

The compromises are that you are mainly looking at older properties which may require maintenance or updating soon, the report noted.

"When you look at nearby suburbs such as Bahrs Scrub or Holmview where you can buy a new dwelling, these properties are usually priced up to the dollar and can often take some years before you see a capital gain given the premium paid for being new," it advised.

"We consider there to be a likelihood of prices falling somewhat for most of this year in these locations, then hopefully a resurgence in the market thereafter.

"However at present, the rental market in these locations is pretty strong providing a good holding income in the meantime.

"The property to buy as a home or an investment are regarded as the same property in these locations."
