Capricorn Coast Christmas Market Update

Capricorn Coast Christmas Market Update


2021 has been another year of change and adjusting to life with COVID-19. We have found the property market has continued to change throughout the year and there are no signs of it slowing down any time soon.  


Over the past three months, we have found that 60% of our Buyers have been non-locals and 33% of our buyers have bought site unseen. We have systems in place to support our out of town buyers and with the recent reopening of the Queensland Borders, we are sure to see another influx of people wanting to move to the Capricorn Coast.


Although the Capricorn Coast population continues to grow, the amount of housing stock available is decreasing. In 2016, there was a total of 1800 properties available for sale on the Capricorn Coast, however, by December this year, there was only 558, that is a massive 69% decrease. Land Sales, interestingly, have increased, this time last year there were 50 allotments sold, compared to 73 the same time this year.


We do have some great news for home owners looking to sell! The average sale price for Capricorn Coast as a whole has increased by $132,822 in just 12 months, with many suburbs experiencing large increases, such as; Barlows Hill now has an average sale price of $719,500, this time last year it was only $440,800.
