Mermaid Beach was another hot suburb and right next to it was Miami, which was also becoming a bit of a trendy place to live.“We couldn’t work out why it wasn’t overpriced and why there were affordable blocks of beachside land. Seeing a great opportunity, we decided to jump at moving there.”Miami beach lifeREIQ Market Monitor editor Felicity Moore said the Miami price hike came on the back of factors such as the light rail, demand for beachfront property and the flow-on effect from Mermaid Beach.More from news02:37Purchasers snap up every residence in the $40 million Siarn Palm Beach North6 hours ago02:37International architect Desmond Brooks selling luxury beach villa1 day ago“Proximity to the recently renovated Pacific Fair Shopping Centre, Bond University campus and Mermaid Beach, which is the Gold Coast’s most expensive suburb, make this suburb very attractive for owner-occupiers looking for high quality living,” Ms Moore said.“The future stage of the light rail project is forecast to include an extension to the Coolangatta airport providing direct access to Miami.”John Henderson Professional Mermaid Beach principal Andrew Henderson said the supply of homes available in Miami was limited.The couple love their bright and breezy luxury villa.

This perception is has certainly changed.”last_img read more
