The 'Rouse Real Estate Report'  for the Northern Sunshine Coast
You can always go to the generic Real Estate information sites and get the latest 'official' perspective however, if you want it from the trenches (every month) on the Northern Sunny Coast, read on.......
Well, it has been 4 months since my last update and a lot has happened, all in the positive sense.  Now that we are in Spring and heading towards Summer, I see nothing but good things ahead.  The  inventory levels have lowered and buyer demand is increasing.  A lot (not all) of this was initially driven by Sydney and Melbourne prices sky rocketing.  But lately, the scare has been put into the Brisbane market (thank you Courier mail for the positive press) and that is causing a 'mini boom'.  So, what is happening, is the sellers in Brissy that are now seeing a 10% to $20% increase in prices are taking advantage and buying up on The Sunny Coast.  This is driving a very steady improvement of our market.  Now, be cautioned, it is not, and probably will not go 'crazy' up here, and you still have to price and present your property correctly , but all in all, we are looking forward to a very good  years.  My current summary for specific categories are as follows: 
Housing - Residential:  Most areas moving solidly forward
Housing - Units: Showing strong interest, especially below $400K
Housing - Was a tad slow with the semi drought, but hopefully with the rain we just had, a 'pickup' could be on the cards
Land - Rural/Residential:  Staying strong and will continue, specially flatter allotments
Rentals:  I have noticed in the past 4  months we did have a peak, but it did slow down a bit (up to early September).  Now we are in Spring, we should see a steady increase toward the Summer holiday rush (a pool and A/C are a bonus) which traditionally continues through to March (2018).
