Noosa Market Update with Shane McCauley

Welcome to 2018 in Noosa, and what a year it is looking likely to be in our property market. The desire to own property in Noosa has only accelerated, and domestic and international property buyers are turning to Noosa for sound investments. Analysis of the Sunshine Coasts real estate market over the last 12 months revealed 14 suburbs  had achieved capital gains of 10 per cent or better, including Noosa Heads which broke through the 13 per cent  barrier. The median sales price for houses in Noosa Heads in the last year was $930,000. Compared to the same period 5 years ago, the median sales price for houses increased 35.8 per cent which equates to an annual growth of 6.3 per cent. Median sales price for units in Noosa Heads in the last year was $612,000. Compared to the same period 5 years ago, the median sales price for units increased 6 per cent.

Auction is the way to go in this market, with one auctioneer spruiking a 75 per cent clearance rate last weekend on the Sunshine Coast. We had 3 auctions at R&W and sold all three, with one auction having 16 registered bidders fighting it out. There is urgency in our market right across the board at all levels and that is certainly exciting to see. Auctions are traditionally good indicators of the health of the current real estate market. The thermometer is now starting to rise as our market is again heating up. Both buyers and sellers have that air of optimism about them again.

As a courtesy we always offer a free appraisal of your property, to let you know the new value in this market. If you would like to utilise this service please give me a call or send me an email.

Good health

We are really pleased to have listed and sold our property with Gillian and the team at R&W Noosa. The current market is full of contradictory news and views, Gillian navigated them very well. She was able to focus on the key issues that were going to attract buyers to our property. This is really helpful for both vendors and buyers alike. We live overseas, so trust was crucial. She kept us informed of the progress throughout the period of the marketing campaign but didn’t bombard us with trivial issues. When auction day arrived, we had a clear understanding of where the market was. Gillian had attracted a number of registered bidders that exceeded our expectations and ultimately led to our successful auction outcome. If you are after honesty, integrity and results, then Gillian is the agent for you. Whilst tireless in her efforts, she also knows how to leverage the experience from her colleagues at R&W Noosa.
