In Q4 2021, Burleigh Heads recorded a median house price of $1,450,000, and a median unit price of $812,000. This represents annual (Q4 2020 – Q4 2021) median price growth of 45.0% for houses and 30.6% for units. Between Q4 2020 – Q4 2021 total sales in both markets slowed, down by -3.7% for houses (to 211 sales) and by -40.6% for units (to 247 sales). Current owner occupiers and down-sizers can benefit from real returns on capital investment, as median price growth has been fuelled by an imbalance in high demand and low stock levels. The market is undersupplied, in need for ready-to-sell stock.
