More significantly, the trend of receiving multiple offers on most properties continues, indicating that the demand for homes here outstrips the available inventory.

New Year, New Opportunities: Sunshine Coast Real Estate Update - January 2024

New Year, New Opportunities: Sunshine Coast Real Estate Update - January 2024


Happy New Year, Sunshine Coast! As I bid farewell to 2023 and welcome the promise of 2024, I am excited to take a fresh look at our local real estate market and what the future holds. Grab your coffee, sit back, and let’s dive into the latest insights for January.

A Quick Recap of November – December 2023

November was an exciting month for us in the Sunshine Coast real estate scene. We celebrated record-breaking sales of $35 million, underscoring the enduring appeal of our beautiful coastal region. Despite a slight increase in the average days on market, the demand remained strong, with multiple offers on many properties. It’s clear that our piece of paradise continues to captivate both buyers and sellers.

A Promising Start to 2024

As we step into the new year, many are wondering what the real estate landscape will look like in 2024. Here are a few trends and factors to keep an eye on:

  1. Interest Rates: With expectations of rising interest rates, some buyers may be eager to secure their dream homes before borrowing costs increase. This could maintain the demand for properties in our area.
  2. Supply and Demand: We’ve been operating with a lower inventory of properties on the market, which has contributed to the competitive environment. Currently, there are only 3,000 homes for sale on the Sunshine Coast, a notably low number considering the growing community. It will be interesting to see if this trend continues or if more listings will emerge as the year progresses.
  3. Migration and Community Growth: The Sunshine Coast continues to be a magnet for people seeking the ideal blend of coastal living and community. Recent statistics reveal a steady increase in migration to our region, showcasing the Sunshine Coast as one of the most desirable places to live in Australia. The growing community adds to the appeal and vitality of our area.
  4. Visit Our New Office at 48-50 Duporth Avenue, Maroochydore: I am thrilled to share some exciting news! In our commitment to serving you better, our brand new office is now set up at 48-50 Duporth Avenue, Maroochydore. I extend a warm welcome to you to visit us and experience the warm, professional atmosphere where our dedicated team is ready to assist with all your real estate needs.

What Should You Do in January 2024?

If you’re a prospective seller, taking advantage of the lower inventory early in the year might be a strategic move. Buyers, on the other hand, may want to act swiftly to secure favourable interest rates. As always, consulting with a knowledgeable real estate agent like myself can provide valuable guidance tailored to your specific situation.

A Final Word

As we embark on this new year, I want to extend my sincere wishes for a prosperous and joyful 2024. The Sunshine Coast real estate market has seen its share of ups and downs, but one thing remains constant – our appreciation for this stunning place we call home.

A Festive Update on the Sunshine Coast Real Estate Market: December 2023 Insights and Holiday Cheer

A Festive Update on the Sunshine Coast Real Estate Market: December 2023 Insights and Holiday Cheer


As the festive lights twinkle and we gear up to celebrate Christmas and welcome the New Year, I wanted to share with you some of the latest trends in our Sunshine Coast real estate market along with my heartfelt holiday wishes.

Firstly, a bit of fantastic news from last month – we hit a record-breaking $35 million in sales! It’s an incredible achievement and a strong indicator of the demand in our area.

Now, onto some insightful market trends. This year, we’ve noticed that the average days on market for properties has increased compared to last year. This shift offers a unique perspective on our current market dynamics, reflecting both the challenges and opportunities for buyers and sellers alike.

Even with this increase in time on the market, the competition remains fierce. We’re still seeing multiple offers on properties, a clear sign of the strong demand and the desirability of our beautiful Sunshine Coast region.

With about 3,382 properties currently on the market, significantly lower than the usual 5,000 to 6,000, the balance of supply and demand continues to shape our market. And as we look towards the future, particularly with the anticipated rise in interest rates, it’s going to be intriguing to see how these factors play out in the coming year.

For those contemplating whether to list now or wait until the new year, my advice leans towards taking the initiative. Getting ahead of the anticipated influx of new listings in January 2024 could be a smart move. Despite the holiday season and the associated slowdown in some services, as an experienced agent, I’m here to ensure that your journey in real estate is smooth and successful.

As we celebrate this festive season, I want to extend my warmest wishes to you and your loved ones for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. May this time be filled with joy, peace, and prosperity.

Looking forward to a bright and exciting 2024 in real estate, and as always, I’m here to support you with any of your property needs.

In 2022, the Sunshine Coast real estate market continued its strong performance, with high demand from both local and interstate buyers. According to the Real Estate Institute of Queensland (REIQ), the median house price on the Sunshine Coast increased by 13.3% over the previous year, reaching $785,000, while the median unit price increased by 10.6% to $540,000.

The REIQ also reported that over 11,000 properties changed hands in 2022, representing an increase of 7.6% from the previous year. Local residents accounted for the majority of buyers, followed by interstate buyers from New South Wales and Victoria.

The coastal suburbs of Noosa Heads, Mooloolaba, and Maroochydore remained highly sought after, while inland areas such as Maleny and Montville also saw significant growth in demand. However, the shortage of listings remained a significant challenge for buyers, with low levels of supply driving competition and leading to strong price growth.
