New apartment sales on the Gold Coast also hit an all-time high, officially making 2021 the hottest market since Urbis began monitoring the sector
Ray White Surfers Paradise Managing Director Andrew Bell reckons the Gold Coast market is now level pegging with other markets in Australia.
“With a higher degree of owner occupiers now in apartments, we are now on level pegging with other markets in Australia and it will contribute to the old boom and bust scenario on the Gold Coast,” Bell says.
Further reports from property consultancy firm Urbis are showing stock is tightening even further.
In September they advised there would be only four months worth of stock if there were to be no new project released, and based on current demand. That figure has been revised to just over two months of stock.
New apartment sales on the Gold Coast also hit an all-time high, officially making 2021 the hottest market since Urbis began monitoring the sector.
The number of apartment sales for the September quarter surged to 690, bringing the total of new apartments sold on the Gold Coast in the first nine months of this year to 1,882.
Owner-occupiers continue to account for the majority of sales, totalling 61 per cent in the September quarter.
Urban has wrapped up all of the moves on the Gold Coast over November.

Developer Tests Depth of Albion Apartment Market
Arden Property Group has lodged plans for an eight-storey apartment tower next door to its Jade apartments development on Burdett Street at Albion.
Euroa is a 76-apartment development on a 2676sq m site, which the developer bought in 2017 for $3 million.
The Altis Architecture-designed tower is on the corner of Burdett Street and Crosby Road, with views over Crosby Park, a proposed Olympic sporting precinct for the 2032 Games.
According to planning documents the development pays homage to the industrial history of the site and the Albion precinct.
“The proposed design has taken a sensitive approach in respecting the industrial heritage significance of the existing site,” the report said.
“The distinct angular roof form and brick palette of the existing industrial building have been reflected in the proposal by incorporating brick feature walls and overclad elements along the street frontage within the planting areas.”
The tower would comprise 19 one-bedroom apartments, 22 two-bedroom apartments, and 35 three-bedroom apartments with a communal rooftop area for residents with a rooftop pool, daybed area, and lounge and views over Brisbane’s evolving skyline.
The architectural design statement said the design outcome would improve street activation, as well as complement and enhance the medium density typology of Albion and leave a “compelling and long-lasting legacy of architectural expression”.
Hoarding has been up on the site for some time, and it comes off the back of Arden Property Group’s four-building 369-apartment Jade development next door.
Arden Property Group’s Jade development won approval in 2014, and was the first major residential development in Albion’s industrial precinct.
Meanwhile former FKP executive director Philip Parker owns a significant stake in the Albion precinct, with storage sheds on Burdett Street and industrial sheds fronting Crosby Road in his portfolio.
