While the Gold Coast has been touted as a popular investment location recently, it pays to do some research into the suburb you might be thinking about buying in.Full summary While the Gold Coast has been touted as a popular investment location recently, it pays to do some research into the suburb you might be thinking about buying in.

For example, the northwest Gold Coast suburb of Coomera has seen its stock on market rise by 49.3%, though it does have some qualities that may soon attract buyers back to it.

The M1 motorway links commuters to Brisbane in under an hour, while a rail line through the suburb offers public transport to both Brisbane and the rest of the Gold Coast.

There are plenty of education services on offer too.

Coomera boasts its own public school; Pimpama Secondary College is on its northern border; and Griffith University’s Gold Coast Campus is also a short drive away.

Coomera hopes to increase its appeal as a tourist location, as it is home to the Dreamworld amusement park, and Movieworld is just to the south.

While the number of homes for sale has risen, Coomera still has a respectable vacancy rate, at just 2.44%, according to Real Estate InvestarClose
