Maroochy Rivers prepares for Sunshine Coast population boom

Date Released - February 27, 2017.

Local buyers are pouncing on new lots in Yandina as they look to secure their slice of hinterland paradise before it’s snapped up.

With the Sunshine Coast population expected to swell over the next 20 years and accommodate an additional 200,000 people, locals are not taking any risks of missing out and have begun buying up the newly-announced stage two of QM Properties’ Maroochy Rivers at Yandina.

Only 28 of the 137 available lots are up for grabs in stage two, and QM Properties General Sales Manager Damien Ross said, “A majority of the lots already sold had been snatched up by locals.”

“It’s great to be able to provide a new place for locals to call home,” Mr Ross said.

“With the population expected to increase markedly over the next little while, local buyers are getting in early to make sure they are able to call the Sunshine Coast home for a while longer.

“We’ve seen buyers come from as close as Yandina itself, Buderim, Bli Bli, Mudjimba, and Peregian Springs.

“But, that said, there has still been interest from interstatee, so I’m sure it won’t be long until the secret gets out.”

Mr Ross said he was unsurprised this release had received so much interest as its location right on the South Maroochy River, with large lots that are close to all amenities made them the perfect choice for anyone looking for a new home.

Andrew Robillard, New Homes Sales Consultant at Ausmar—the company building a number of homes in Maroochy Rivers—said he expected people to take advantage of the hinterland location when considering the build of their home.

“Those who get in early can certainly take advantage of the location,” Mr Robillard said.

“It certainly is first in best dressed, because there are some sites that will give people a beautiful bushland view.

“It’s these buyers who have mostly decided that pole homes are the way to go on their block, as traditionally they are designed to give people access to views.

“However we have seen a number of people opting for the traditional slab homes as well so there is a fantastic mix of properties being built.”
