Winter weather hasn't stopped the real estate market on the Sunshine Coast from continuing to pick up momentum.
Sales for Single Family homes are up 5% over last year at the same time, and the sales price to listing price ratio is up 3.6% showing that sellers are less likely to accept low offers. Inventory remains low and has continued to drop as it seems sellers have not yet reacted to the changing market. Homes in the $650,000 and under range are selling quickly as they are appealing to both local buyers and investors. There are currently only 33 homes with in-law suites or additional accommodations for sale on the Sunshine Coast with the lowest price starting at $569,000 for a family home with a 1 Bedroom in-law suite located in Madeira park.
Compare this with the market in the summer of 2019, where there were over 65 homes with in-law suites with prices as low as the mid $400's. For a full list of all available homes with mortgage helpers CLICK HERE.
