How are you at picking race horses? Won lotto lately? Can choosing the next Property Hot Spot be just as challenging? Maybe not.
We're blessed on the Sunshine Coast to have such an enviable location to call home without doubt and with an abundance of natural beauty, it's little wonder why so many chose to migrate here every year. So if you're looking for a key investment or to ensure you get some capital gain from your family home, where do you buy?
Firstly consider why we moved here in the first place. For most of us, we decided that we were going to walk on the beach everyday so proximity to a beach is high on the agenda for most. The reality is we don't end up walking on the beach everyday but that's another story!
The Coast is also very family friendly and orientated so the next criteria for most buyers is schools. There are many fantastic options available both public and private as well as good transport options for them all as well.
Thirdly, the relationship to other facilities. Shopping, business centres, transport hubs, boat ramps are all factors with our daily life that we need to make allowances for. There's no point living on the beach somewhere if you need to drive 40 min for some milk! Our suburbs aren't that bad but you get the point.
So my tip would be to identify area's that are close to the beach, shops, schools and other points of interest as you'll ensure that is always going to be demand which will ultimately fuel the performance of your investment. My tip: Buddina
