43-49 Peerless Avenue, Mermaid BeachView
One of the Gold Coast’s premium suburbs, Mermaid Beach, is seeing continued momentum in capital growth and national demand, particularly from Sydney and Melbourne buyers. Despite prestige property cooling off slightly across the country, recent sales in Mermaid Beach’s Hedges Avenue prove there is still a strong appetite for buyers.
Rents on the Gold Coast are increasing due to high demand. Realestate.com.au chief economist Nerida Conisbee said that interstate migration is driving up demand and they are seeing massive numbers of searches and visits nationally on realestate.com.au, particularly in Gold Coast suburbs.
“The Gold Coast appears to be an escape valve for Sydney’s high prices and we see very high levels of search activity from buyers and renters in Sydney looking at the area,” she said. “It’s lifestyle and affordability — what you pay to rent in Sydney near a beach is expensive but on the Gold Coast it’s much more affordable.”

Tolemy Stevens from Harcourts Coastal Broadbeach said, “While the Sydney and Melbourne markets seem to be having their own challenges, we are seeing a lot of those high-net-worth individuals deciding to look at blue chip real estate on the Gold Coast, in particular Mermaid Beach, instead of choosing to reinvest in their own backyard.”
