Burleigh Heads has been the latest hot-spot for developers, with a number of big names bringing luxury and lifestyle to the coast with a range of modern and boutique apartments.

Recently talks and community discussion have begun for the proposed Gold Coast Light Rail Stage 4 extension, which will see a stop included for Burleigh Heads, further earmarking this spot as a prime living location.

While owner-occupiers have been the keenest buyers over the last 12 months, interstate investors have also been keen, given the 8.6 per cent annual growth rate for two-bedroom apartments and 12.5 per cent for three-bedroom apartments.

Urban has had a look at the best apartment projects which are currently selling in Burleigh Heads.
