Terry Ryder, a real estate commentator, had an interesting article in The Australian on Thursday about investing in Noosa."The apartment market has done even worse, delivering growth averaging less than 2 per cent a year. The median unit price for the Noosa region today is lower than four years ago. This kind of subnormal performance is common among popular seachange locations -- contrary to the widely held belief that the Gold Coast and Byron Bay are great places to invest in real estate. They may be lovely places to live but that's a different matter. Investors want an affordable entry price, good income returns and high capital growth -- and they're unlikely to find any of the above in these markets."
