Interest rate trends in the Sunshine Coast market

The RBA brought the cash rate down to a record target of 0.1% throughout 2021 in an effort to encourage spending and economic growth.

Whilst this may seem like a large increase, the Sunshine Coast became a high target for buyers seeking a coastal change throughout the pandemic, with homes having had their prices double in five years, signifying strong growth in the market.

Continuously adding value into the property market, The Sunshine Coast remains to be a great investment. Cube Developments’ projects present many different options to choose from, and we have an entire team dedicated to helping you navigate this journey.
