Ray White Sur​fers Paradise Managing Director And​rew Bell reckons the Gold Coast market is now level pegging with other markets in Australia.

"With a higher degree of owner occupiers now in apartments, we are now on level pegging with other markets in Australia and it will contribute to the old boom and bust scenario on the Gold Coast," Bell says.

Further reports from property consultancy firm Urbis are showing stock is tightening even further.

In September they advised there would be only four months worth of stock if there were to be no new project released, and based on current demand. That figure has been revised to just over two months of stock.

New apartment sales on the Gold Coast also hit an all-time high, officially making 2021 the hottest market since Urbis began monitoring the sector.

The number of apartment sales for the September quarter surged to 690, bringing the total of new apartments sold on the Gold Coast in the first nine months of this year to 1,882.

Owner-occupiers continue to account for the majority of sales, totalling 61 per cent in the September quarter.

Urban has wrapped up all of the moves on the Gold Coast over November.

But now the dress circle street is set for something completely different to what has been seen in decades.
