SETTING THE STANDARD


HELLO, and welcome to our RealtyGC web site, we are a boutique agency specialising in old fashioned service and a very select number of new and established properties for your consideration.

Our agency represents a culmination of many years of property experience. Over the years we have sold millions of dollars in real estate holdings. Individually we have on many occasions purchased, renovated and invested in property with positive outcomes being mindful of the boom and bust cyclical nature of the asset class most of us call home, so please avail yourselves of our professional experience.

We operate differently to most other agencies in that we don’t sugar coat the selling process just to get a listing. We handle every sale personally with good marketing and sale strategies which includes open homes weekly until sold. We do not promote auction strategies for selling unless the property has unique characteristics and with 27 years’ experience on the Gold Coast we understand the market nuances and fluctuations from suburb to suburb and from the shoreline to the hills.

Mostly we secure our listings by personal referral or alternatively someone will have a specific request in a preferred location which requires us to organise a letterbox drop procuring a specific home or unit of choice for our clientele. 

Please take the time to navigate our site and call Jamie for obligation free answers to your property questions.


MAIN BEACH: EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED


THE BEST KEPT SECRET IN MAIN BEACH

From the moment you enter you could be forgiven for thinking you have been transported to your own private luxurious Tuscan villa. Occupying the entire top floor and roof deck this absolutely unique single level villa sits atop a trendy 3 storey walk up.

Beautifully and thoughtfully rebuilt to the owners exacting standards, the first thing you say upon entering is “WOW”. Disbelief this slice of paradise could exist, you will become enveloped in the space and style and never want to leave.

Over approx 300m2 of indoor, covered al fresco and 3 outdoor patios/balconies, this offers space to satisfy the whole family. There is even a separate study and entertainment room off the patio. And with no noticeable adjoining neighbours and only 6 other apartments this is sublime. There is parking for 2 cars plus lock up storage. 

This 3 bedroom home with multiple bathrooms and living areas has ducted air conditioning and comes furnished with stunning quality furniture and fittings.

This could be your haven from a busy life or the perfect holiday getaway. It’s unique, only 250m approx to patrolled surf beach, the Nerang  River and the Tedder Avenue dining precinct and has very low body corporate fees and will, I believe sell to the first person who inspects.

This is Irreplaceable in both location and quality. This ultimate boutique penthouse could be yours. Please contact the agent to arrange an inspection.

Priced for immediate sale at $895,000.

2017 MARKET REPORT


2017: A LOCAL'S MARKET

Very positive year for values on the Gold Coast

with steady increases in most sectors.

 

I am still seeing a lot of upside in the local established home market with 10 to 15% increases in value not uncommon. Local residents are keeping the market bubbling along even with threats of a recession. We need to remember that the Queensland market lagged behind other states. While their property values were soaring, here in Queensland we were recovering from a 30% plunge in values. Now while the southern states suffer from an overheated market we are seeing good continuing gains. 

It is important to remember if you plan to sell a property in 2017 stay within the parameters advised by your agent otherwise, if you aim too high the property will stagnate and have that stigma of an unsaleble home.

There are still thousands of new apartments planned for the next few years. Prime locations will undoubtably attract buyers, however, not so prime locales will, I feel, suffer. 

Settlements on some projects have been adversely affected by the major banks policy changes during the year, that now sees them generally lending to residents only. This has meant overseas buyers have to either front with the cash to settle or accept non bank loans at much higher interest rates and fees. All non residents should plan well in advance if they consider purchasing new apartments in Australia. Quite possibly the ability to on sell property prior to completion for profit will be severly affected. Do your homework.

We, like most agents are finding a lack of listings to be our biggest hurdle at present. All our listings during the year sold within days of hitting the market. This is for two reasons. One is a general shortage of good properties, and secondly our 40 year experience in this industry assures sellers that everything is being done to achieve a sale. We build a campaign in the 2 weeks prior to marketing that ensures large numbers of potential buyers view the property on the first weekend of listing, which generally leads to buyer competition and a most satisfactory sale price for our sellers.

Good luck in 2017 and if I can be of assistance, just call me
