Well the countdown for the official start of spring is well and truly on now…just a matter of weeks away, not that you’d know by the weather, we have been enjoying glorious spring-like conditions for the past few weeks!

With spring generally comes a surge in confidence, it’s not just the flowers that bloom, everything seems to liven up, particularly the property market and with the momentum still strong we are anticipating a bumper spring market! Buyers like to purchase in spring also so they can be well and truly settled into their new home by Christmas, so if you’re thinking of selling, now is an opportune time to take advantage of the activity.

The Sunshine Coast region is really coming into its own as not just a wonderful place to visit and live, but as a regional economic hub with strong employment opportunities and exciting infrastructure projects.

Stockland have reported that the economic benefits of the Oceanside health precinct at Kawana are already exceeding expectations at a faster rate than predicted. Analysis has revealed that 1360 direct and indirect jobs have been created in the past year and 70% of commercial sites in the precinct are sold or under contract; this is a clear testament to the confidence business has in this hub.

Kingsley Andrew Stockland Residential Queensland General Manager described the area as “one of the biggest economic events that the Sunshine Coast has seen”. Sunshine Coast Mayor Mark Jamieson said 1700 businesses would employ 24,000 people in the area “on rates of pay that will push the average up” which would bring spin-offs for the rest of the Coast.

On a final note, well done to our Aussie netballers on their World Cup win and also to Jason Day for his impressive PGA win; oh, and our female cricket team are over in the UK showing the boys how it’s done!

Have a great weekend.
