The Verdict

I would recommend this property for an investor with a long-term “Buy & Hold” Strategy in mind. This property provides high capital growth potential AND a discount below market value to create instant equity for your portfolio.

High capital growth potential

Here’s what Australia’s leading property researcher and Director of Hotspotting.com.au, Terry Ryder, says about the Northern Gold Coast Region…

“For a long time, Hotspotting has avoided recommending the Gold Coast because of its poor track record on capital growth and its boom-bust history (soon to be fuelled by another major oversupply of high rise apartments).

But the Gold Coast cannot be ignored – billions are being spent on infrastructure and major developments, and vacancy rates are extremely low. There will be price growth, especially in the genuine residential suburbs.

We recommend that investors on the Gold Coast concentrate on the genuine residential suburbs inland and in the growth corridor heading north towards Brisbane, where suburbs like Oxenford, Ormeau, Coomera and Pimpama all have rising markets.


This property has been listed at $516,000 negotiable. The estimated market value of the property is $449,000 (sign up below to get the full valuation report) which potentially puts you $57,000 in front from day 1.


With a rental yield of around 5.8% this property provides an excellent return. Our cash-flow analysis estimates that this property will be cash-flow positive by around $41 per week.
