I really enjoy these first few weeks of January. The quiet start to a new year gives us time to think about what we'd like to achieve in the year ahead.
Mark Twain once said, "The secret of getting ahead is getting started". And this is particularly true in the property market. Why do we sit back and watch others grow their wealth while we do nothing?
So, let's make 2020 the year for you!

On Monday night Channel 7 News ran a story highlighting the difficulty in finding a tradesman on the Sunshine Coast. The construction boom is definitely keeping them all busy.
And local builders are feeling it too. They are struggling to keep up with the demand for quality homes on the Sunshine Coast.
With all this activity, local real estate agents are predicting a 20-30% increase in property prices and are desperately seeking new houses to list. And with the population increasing at 10,000 new residents a year, this growth on the Sunshine Coast is likely to continue.
If you're a first home buyer or savvy investor, 2020 is set to be a bumper year!

Property Investment expert, Terry Ryder put it best in an article he wrote late last year:
"I put a high rating on the Sunshine Coast as a market that investors of all kinds should be considering. I regard the Sunshine Coast as the strongest market in Queensland at the moment and indeed one of the strongest in Australia.”
So, if you're thinking of investing in 2020 but not sure what to do first, this is my recommendation:
I look forward to hearing about your plans for 2020!
All the best,
