IT’S no sur­prise house hunters from New South Wales and Vic­to­ria are our lead­ing in­ter­state buy­ers but where ex­actly are they look­ing to buy?

Data from realestate.com.au re­veals five Gold Coast sub­urbs made the top 10 sub­urbs in Queens­land when it came to the num­ber of searches from other states.

While Bris­bane City was the most pop­u­lar and searched for sub­urb, Surfers Par­adise came in a close sec­ond and South­port was num­ber four. Broad­beach and Burleigh Heads fol­lowed while Palm Beach came in at num­ber eight.

New South Wales house hunters were the most com­mon fol­lowed by those in Vic­to­ria and Tas­ma­nia.

On the in­ter­na­tional front, the most pop­u­lar house hunters were from New Zealand, fol­lowed by the United King­dom and United States.

Surfers Par­adise, Broad­beach, Burleigh Heads, South­port and Hope Is­land all made Queens­land’s top 10 when it came to the num­ber of searches by in­ter­na­tional buy­ers.

REIQ Gold Coast zone chair An­drew Hen­der­son said it wasn’t sur­pris­ing to see so many Coast sub­urbs in­side the top 10.

“Surfers Par­adise, Broad­beach and Burleigh Heads are the more well-known sub­urbs of the Gold Coast so that’s why they would be in the search cri­te­ria for both in­ter­state and in­ter­na­tional buy­ers,” Mr Hen­der­son said.

“It’s a pretty well worn path to get to those sub­urbs.

“Buy­ers are prob­a­bly fol­low­ing in the foot­steps of friends or fam­ily who have gone be­fore them and moved to the Gold Coast.”

Five Coast sub­urbs made Queens­land’s top 10 list when it came to the num­ber of searches from other states.
