The Gold Coast is known for its long sandy beaches, famous surfing spots and the laid back lifestyle. While the Gold Coast is known for being a tourist hotspot, many people take advantage of what the Coast has to offer and reside here permanently.

On the Gold Coast the median price to buy a house comes in at a reasonable $556,000. Although this is higher than the Queensland average of $446,000 when you consider all the benefits that come with living on the Gold Coast it is a very reasonable price to pay.

Revamped buildings and new developments on the Gold Coast make it a great location to invest.

As well as the new developments that are constantly arising on the Gold Coast, many buildings are receiving a refresh including $1.5 million dollars allocated to the revamp of Cavill Mall. In total there are 23 projects that are being extended or refreshed.
