7. More Bang for your buck
Making your money go further makes moving to the Gold Coast a winning choice for the savvy homeowner in Sydney and Melbourne. Similar sized apartments in Melbourne and Sydney have price points significantly more expensive, and for the cost of a pretty ordinary location in the outer suburbs of Sydney or Melbourne, you will be able to trade up and live in the best locations in Queensland.
Places like Chevron One Residences, that are close to all the vibrant energy of cosmopolitan living but provides a quiet sanctuary away from all the hustle and bustle, offers the best of both worlds. Being able to enjoy all the amenities of a club style resort but with none of the upkeep also adds to the appeal
