Quick Snips 2017<< Back to Blog
I hope everyone has enjoyed the seemingly endless public holidays that have given us plenty of long weekends. Starting from Easter and ending this weekend on Labour day the long weekends and the ones that weren’t quite long weekends but close enough, has seen a bonus for tourism in our region, although there have been a few wet days the warm weather and clear blue sky’s have been an added bonus living up to the Sunshine Coast name.
It has been reported recently that the growth of the international and domestic guests visiting the Sunshine Coast is breaking records and the trend shows no sign of slowing down.
For those following the Palmer Resort saga it seems there is a bit of a win for the President’s Club Golf Villa owners as they finally get their power and water restored, the owners are able to take a long awaited vacation after 4 years in limbo. Unfortunately it’s not all good news as there are 3 body corporates at the resort and the Presidents Club Tennis villas has a majority ownership by Mr Palmer and no progress has been made with restoring the power and water to their villas. I’m sure all locals would agree that some sort of positive activity in the now run down, overgrown and neglected resort would be welcome. Further more there has been an announcement that two bedroom villas are going to be sold individually in an as is basis from $220,000. Some of the finer details are to be worked out but expressions of interest are being sort shortly.
The Sunshine Coast University Hospital has just been given the news that the 15 additional medical places will now be supported by the Federal Government delivering a long-awaited medical school. This will now bring the total places to 50 as needed by Griffith University to establish the Medical School. This outcome is a positive boost to our region attracting not only students but all hospital support staff and educators alike.
After many years of adjustment from the heady growth years in the 2000’s we are finally seeing property sales in some instances achieve the sale prices of 2007 and 2008 with highly sought properties in the $400,000 to $800,000 in some cases setting new bench marks.
In general for residential housing which includes houses, townhouses, duplexes, vacant land and apartment buildings with low body corporate fees there are often several buyers for the one property. There are very few properties for sale in this area so finally some good news for investors and owners who have been holding property for many years through the tough times.
