Happy dance for parents as school returns | Happy wallets for investors seeing price growth
Parents across South East Queensland collectively celebrated as school went back last week. Now, there’s more good news for Mums, Dads and more, with a population / interstate migration boom seeing schools upgrade their infrastructure. As a result, house prices in these catchments are increasing.
South East Queensland’s rapidly growing population is seeing a wave of buyers attracted to new developments under construction within close proximity to top schools.
With record numbers of migrants now coming from not only across Australia but across the globe, schools are upscaling their offerings to world-class to meet the increase in enrolments.
The State Government released new school catchment maps last year, with major changes to the zone for Queensland’s top ranked public high school — Brisbane State High — where approximately half of all Year 12 students received OPs between 1 and 5 last year. The homes that have remained in the catchment are projected to increase in value.
Robina is renowned for its central Gold Coast location and its close proximity to some of the most well respected schools and universities in the city – and in some cases, the country.
Two of the top schools in Queensland are located in Gold Coast’s geographic heart. Demand for easy access to these schools is seeing a surge in property sales in Robina.
Robina Group Development Manager, Darrell Irwin, said Robina Group’s latest masterplanned residential community, the $170 million Vue Terrace Homes, is located at the heart of Robina’s education and transport hub, making it an ideal location for students and families.
“One of Australia’s leading and most prestigious private universities, Bond University, has a campus right across the road and its main facilities just a seven-minute drive or bus trip from Vue Terrace Homes,” said Mr Irwin.
“All Saints Anglican School and Somerset College are two of the Gold Coast’s most elite and top-performing private schools, and they are both less than 10 minutes away by car.
“Vue Terrace Homes is a short, safe walk or bike ride to Robina State High School, and a five-minute drive to Robina State School, so residents are also inside the catchment areas of two fantastic local public schools.”
Also opposite Vue, adjacent to the Robina Train Station and Transport hub, is the brand new Sunkids Childrens Centre which has an excellent reputation for quality child care. Robina is also home to many trade and tertiary institutions, including The French Beauty Academy and Australian Industry Trade College, providing endless options to educate young minds.
