Meteoric house price hikes across key Gold Coast suburbs have sent the city hurtling towards a golden property era, and while it’s now almost impossible to nab a home for under a million dollars in most beachside spots, experts have named the next pockets tipped to boom.

Property experts have revealed Tugun, Mermaid Waters, Robina and Carrara are four of the top spots to spend your property dollars, after nearby suburbs Miami, Burleigh Heads, Tallebudgera and Bundall all posted jaw-dropping price growth of up to 38 per cent in a year, according to the June Domain House Price Report.

Houses in Miami climbed to $1,066,250 after the suburb experienced 38.5 per cent annual growth, while in Bundall, house prices shot up by 32.5 over the same period to $1,377,500.

Tallebudgera and Burleigh Heads each posted house price rises of just over 30 per cent to reach $1.2 million and $1.116 million while Mermaid Beach climbed close to the $2 million mark, rising by 17.9 per cent to $1.91 million.

Meanwhile, in Tugun, house prices rose almost 25 per cent to $880,000 – and by 5.7 per cent in Robina to $713,500.

In Mermaid Waters, house prices jumped 28.7 per cent to $1.063 million and, in Carrara, by 16.6 per cent to $642,000 – leaving plenty of room for gargantuan growth as stock levels remain tight and southern eyes increasingly look north to the sun-drenched city.

“From Mermaid (Beach) down to Palm Beach, Miami and Burleigh then inland to Tallebudgera we’ve seen extremely strong growth … those suburbs have really accelerated … and now you’re struggling to find anything under a million,” PRD Burleigh Heads director Adam Van Leeuwen said.
