Going Gold: The Gravitational Pull of the Gold Coast

21 Golden Beaches, 4 internationally celebrated theme parks, 2 of the largest shopping centres in the southern hemisphere and some of the best nightlife this side of Las Vegas, the Gold Coast is Australia’s eternal playground for the fresh faced and the young at heart. So why do people gravitate towards the glitter strip? As one of the major new home builders in the region, Dixon Homes Gold Coast match first home buyers with quality homes across the communities of the Gold Coast and in today’s article we give key reasons why the Gold Coast continues to boom and remains one of our most popular regions that we build in.

1. Its Location – Just one hour to Brisbane and serviced by two airports, Gold Coast Airport (OOL) and Brisbane International Airport, (BNE) getting to Gold Coast is easy. With perfectly situated seaside communities and an average of more than 300 days of Sunshine a year, you’ll think you’ve just struck gold.
2. Affordability – As Australia’s sixth largest city, the Gold Coast is still affordable. Residents don’t fall victim to some of the overly inflated costs found in the major capital cities. Average house prices are also currently down more than 15 per cent since 2010, so there’s real value to be currently had in the Gold Coast house and land market.
3. The Glitz and Glamour – While not everyone buys into the glamour of the Gold Coast, you can’t deny the beachy style, the bronzed bodies, the nightlife, the fancy restaurants and the luxury cars are many of the reasons people are attracted to the region and why people flock here.
4. Australia’s holiday hotspot – People move here because they want to feel like they are on holidays year round as much as physically possible. That means an outdoor lifestyle, plenty of things to do, and lots of entertainment and attractions, plus natural beauty close by. The Gold Coast has all these things in complete abundance.
