It’s no secret the rental market on the Sunshine Coast has exploded with COVID pressures and the sea change surge fuelling record demand.
In the Caloundra region alone, between 800 and 2,500 enquires for rental properties are flooding in each month and there is simply not enough stock to meet the need.
Our Business Development Manager, Jonathan Elston, says a caring and compassionate approach is critical in the current environment. “If 500 more rental properties appeared on our books, it still wouldn’t be enough".
“We can’t help everybody but we will always do our very best. We are always willing to listen to individual circumstances,’’ he said.
“At the end of the day it’s up to the owners but we dive in to really get to know the applicants so we can put the best possible case forward on their behalf.
“It’s all about communication. The knowledge we can share with owners and also prospective tenants is what sets us apart from other agencies,’’ Jonathan said.
To give an example of just how hot the rental market has been across the southern Sunshine Coast, we recently listed six townhouses in Birtinya which were all successfully leased within a week, with rents ranging from the high $500s to $650 per week.
If you are thinking of purchasing an investment property or placing an existing home in the rental pool, now is clearly a good time to act.
