live in Hervey Bay best beach city lifestyle

Hervey Bay QLD offers an affordable beach city and lifestyle with plenty of waterfront real estate including lake and/or beachfront suburbs to choose from. As one of the cheapest coastal towns in QLD, the gorgeous city ticks each and every real estate box including affordability, lifestyle, and location.

Despite recent price increases of between 30 and 50%, the Hervey Bay property dream is still alive for cashed-up home buyers or those with their finance options all sorted out! The area has stunning homes located less than a five-minute drive from the stunning beaches that the area is renowned for. It’s definitely time for both the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast areas to make way for the upcoming rising star of affordable coastal living— Fraser Coast’s Regional City of Hervey Bay.

Welcome to Affordable Waterfront Suburbs Beach City Living

The coastal city of Hervey Bay was previously most famous for migrating whales and retirees, but properties of late bought by scores of people wanting a relaxed sea-scape lifestyle without the hefty price tag and crowds of nearby Sunshine and Gold Coast suburbs. Boasting perfect weather all year round, restaurants, cafes, eateries, and a glitzy marina, Hervey Bay has magically transformed from a quaint fishing village into a thriving coastal cosmopolitan city. Stroll along the foreshore or bike paths, indulge in waterfront dining, wander through charming weekend markets or head out to explore Fraser Island.

Hervey Bay Affordability = Value for Money

Brian Thompson, the senior broker from Property Brokerage says “affordability is number one with people seeing value for money. The Hervey Bay lifestyle is enviable, and we’ve been fortunate enough to be located just outside the bubble that went into lockdown all the time. So far, we’ve been pretty safe” he said.

Still Well Below QLD Median House Prices

You can still buy houses and units in Hervey Bay for a bargain price, with most areas still having a median price well below the average prices further south.

While demand remains high, with houses still selling sight unseen, Mr. Thompson advises interstate purchasers interested in buying a home in the area to do so subject to an inspection as well as a building and pest report. It’s also wise to do adequate homework with regard to financing.

He has assisted numerous out-of-town buyers to go to contract on properties walking and talking them through the entire process using Property Brokerage’s unique “Interactive Open Homes Virtual Tour.” Many of these buyers had missed buying homes that they liked due to high buyer demand and not being in town to inspect. By the time they got to Hervey Bay, the previously listed properties were no longer available.
