Housing Rental Demand
The steadily growing arrival of new construction and permanent workforce to the region coupled with constrained housing supply in recent years has meant that the Sunshine Coast is experiencing one of the lowest rental vacancy rates of all Australian urban centres. This shortage has been in place for at least 2 years is set to become even more constrained as the major infrastructure projects come on stream. Key market data includes:
Sunshine Coast regional current residential vacancy 1.5% compared with Brisbane CBD 4.3%, Gold Coast 1.8%, Sydney 1.8% (all SQM Research). With these market fundamentals in mind, it is considered that the purchase of ‘The Hedge’ units will present a very real opportunity for strong rental demand and capital growth.
