Gold in the Coast hills

It’s not just the glitzy beach­front sub­urbs join­ing the mil­lion-dol­lar club on the Gold Coast with Hin­ter­land gems prov­ing pop­u­lar

THE Gold Coast may be fa­mous for its golden beaches but for many the hin­ter­land is the place to call home.

And it ap­pears that there may be “gold in them thar hills”.

Talle­budgera Val­ley is the lat­est Gold Coast sub­urb to join the mil­lion-dol­lar club — that is the list of sub­urbs with a me­dian price of more than $1 mil­lion.

De­mand for hin­ter­land prop­er­ties on the Gold Coast is surg­ing.

Last month it was re­ported Talle­budgera Val­ley, Talle­budgera and Cur­rumbin Val­ley were among the high­est de­mand sub­urbs among home­buy­ers.

These sub­urbs of­fer home buy­ers sprawl­ing homes, beau­ti­ful scenery and plenty of land to pur­sue a va­ri­ety of past-times, whether that be horse rid­ing, mo­tor­bikes, bush­walk­ing, hobby farm­ing or sim­ply re­lax­ing. And all of this comes with only a short drive to the beach.

Even trav­el­ling fur­ther afield to places like Beech­mont, Spring­brook and Mount Tam­borine, the green chang­ers will find prop­er­ties with plenty of ap­peal, greater af­ford­abil­ity and po­ten­tial for cap­i­tal gains. Take Mount Tam­borine for ex­am­ple. Tam­borine is a beau­ti­ful spot that is home to more than 7000 peo­ple.

Its chief in­dus­try is tourism and a lot of res­i­dents move there be­cause it is qui­eter than the Gold Coast, cheaper than the Gold Coast and the tem­per­a­tures are cooler.

How­ever, it doesn’t mean prop­erty de­mand is any cooler.

In 2011 the me­dian price for a four- bed­room house on Mount Tam­borine was $413,000.

By the end of 2017 it had risen to $530,000.

1227 Talle­budgera Creek Rd, Talle­budgera Val­ley is cur­rently on the mar­ket.
