All About Our Local Area
December 15, 2015
There are so many reasons to be interested in purchasing a home at Nature’s Edge, but the Queensland Real Estate governing body, REIQ, has just confirmed the most important one!
A recent REIQ poll has listed Forest Glen as one of the most in demand real estate locations on the Sunshine Coast.
Located just off the Bruce Highway near Woombye, Forest Glen is a rural community predominantly made up of rural acreage properties and untouched rainforest.
As an emerging location for real estate, there have been a number of land releases cropping up in the local area. Prestige properties are also in abundance here with many multi-million sales occurring in recent times.
It seems the Hinterland properties of the Sunshine Coast are as much in demand as properties on the coast itself.
Locations such as Forest Glen that are within easy driving distance from beaches and the main business districts of the Sunshine Coast continue to be in demand.
However properties are tightly held in Forest Glen with minimal transactions occurring in recent months. There are no surprises here!
Forest Glen is home to Sunshine Coast Grammar, winery and a Big 4 holiday resort.
Residents of Forest Glen can obtain their groceries at the Forest Glen Shopping Village on Mons Road or head into Maroochydore for major retail outlets. Forest Glen Shopping Village has a supermarket, newsagent, bakery, butcher, bottle shop and other small retailers
