Where the wealthy like to call home on the Gold Coast

New homes for first home buyers and investors
The Gold Coast also has a relatively young demographic profile, made up of both first homebuyers and investors. Opportunities to build two to three bedroom homes in low-to-midrise developments are prime, but it’s important to know which suburbs to look into, where land prices are affordable and what infrastructure is planned for the long term.
Hot suburbs located at the southern end of the sunny Gold Coast include Tugun and Bilinga. House prices are still relatively affordable in these areas and better still land is prime for building new homes.

Of course if investment is more on the cards, it’s also promising to know that rental demand is strong in these suburbs. Another area to keep in mind is Mermaid Beach. Whilst land is limited, property buyers can enjoy lower entry-level prices. Moving further north, the more established suburbs such as Ashmore and Arundel offer plenty of established infrastructure as well as access to the newest new light rail system connecting many areas of the Gold Coast.
