A high-level state government official has been forced to apologise after comparing the Gold Coast property market to a sexually transmitted disease

    He's wrong on at least one count with this comment - you can't "fix" herpes, HPV is with you for life. Maybe he should keep his analogies to things he understands...

    the whole point has been missed, the whole gold coast property market is one giant mess...abused over 30 yrs by dodgy developers, corrupt officials, sleazy real estate agents, massively overpriced property and lack of infrastructure....the latter has been really moving ahead in the last 5yrs, especially around broad beach.
    property prices need to drop 35-40% to be realistic..after that massive restrictions should be put on new developments for 20 yrs...old buildings bought by government and pulled down for parks or small developments...
    This would be at least a decent start
