22 Million Reasons

By Dan Sowden

When talking about noteworthy property sales, you simply can’t go past the glamour of prestigious home sales and the eye watering price tags that accompany them. The figures they attract mean while most of us can only dream they are really only an option for the elite few.

In the last month, who could go past Sunshine Beach’s record setting $22m property sale at 21-23 Webb Road. A seven bedroom, eight bathroom estate on the beachfront; this home most certainly offered everything you would expect for a $20m+ dollar sale. The interesting part is that local agents are now expecting other local owners may cash in on this with comparable property soon to hit the market.

The point today is that our real estate has not changed; it is simply the lure the Sunshine Coast now has to the many Elite Australians or Internationals that look to secure a place of residence.

Today, the Sunshine Coast is now competing on the national stage to attract these types of people to our coastline; and why wouldn’t they? In comparison to Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs, Melbourne’s Mornington Peninsula or even Gold Coast’s Hedges Avenue, The Sunshine Coast is now competing in the same ‘weight division’, but in my biased opinion offers so much more.

Our world class beaches are accessible, our Schools are regarded as some of the finest in the country; our University is expanding and already recognised at an international level. The Sunshine Coast should be, and clearly is, one of the destinations now squarely on the map for elite property seekers.

What will the future hold? I remember seeing Maroochydore’s first million dollar home sale, then its first $5m apartment sale, this most recent $22m home sale in Sunshine Beach will be just another benchmark for our ever-growing community.
