Pacific Harbour a Major Hotspot

Date Released - January 18, 2017.

Pacific Harbour, QM Properties’ flagship development on Bribie Island, has been named number one in realestate.com.au’s list of The Most Popular Land Developments of 2016 for the second year in a row.

Located in Banksia Beach, which is also receiving a lot of attention from major news outlets a major real estate hotspot after being named as one of the top ‘boom burbs’ in the latest Hotspotting Price Predictor Index, Pacific Harbour is expected to significantly rise in value.

As South East Queensland’s property market continues to boom and available land diminishes, buyers are zeroing in on Pacific Harbour’s affordability, enviable island lifestyle, and close proximity to world-class facilities including the Comiskey Group’s Sandstone Point Hotel and the Pacific Harbour Golf and Country Club.

Recently declared a Priority Development Area by the State Government, major infrastructure upgrades in the Moreton Bay Region, increased job opportunities, and National Broadband Network (NBN) access is attracting large numbers of first home buyers, young professionals, small business owners and young families to Pacific Harbour and Banksia Beach.

Pacific Harbour Sales Director Annette Mengel said that she is not surprised by Pacific Harbour’s popularity, or that Banksia Beach has been declared a hotspot, as there has been a noticeable shift in the buyer demographic at Pacific Harbour in the past 12 months.

“Bribie Island has always had a bit of a reputation as a holiday escape or the perfect place to retire, but more and more people are realising that they can have an affordable island lifestyle and still be under an hour’s commute from Brisbane,” said Ms Mengel.

“Residents can come home after a stressful day and go out fishing or relax on their deck overlooking the waterfront and keen golfers are just a short stroll from one of Australia’s top rated ‘must play’ golf courses. The quality of the lifestyle that Pacific Harbour has to offer is simply unmatched,” she said.

Growth in the area is only set to continue in the area as the Moreton Bay Regional Council have pledged to invest more than $6 million in community infrastructure for Division 1 over the next 12 months, which includes upgrades to the Bribie Island Library, new play equipment for local parks, as well as $975,000 for new bike lanes along Benabrow Avenue in Bongaree.

Canal front allotments at Pacific Harbour start from $495,000, with large lots overlooking parkland adjoining the award winning, world class Pacific Harbour Golf Course and Country Club from just $267,000.
