The lifestyle community developer has secured 30 sales in 30 days across its southeast Queensland communities – and that figure is expected to reach 50 sales by the end of April.


Halcyon attributes this continued success to QLD’s stellar interstate migration figures, with NSW and VIC-based retirees capitalising on affordable housing and lifestyle advantages in the Sunshine State.


Australian Bureau of Statistics data showed 24,300 interstate migrators moved to Queensland in the year ending September 2018.


Halcyon’s 30 sales over the last month equates to a total $19.5 million (expected to exceed $30 million before April ends).   


Halcyon joint managing director Dr Bevan Geissmann said these strong sales throughout the first quarter are occurring despite April being a typically quiet time for property sales.


“We know sales rates in other sectors of the property market have declined in some instances, but strong migration, a growing ageing population cohort, and our award-winning lifestyle product tailored to a market that has equity is keeping sales strong”, he said.


“[New residents] are selling their homes, buying a new established home at Halcyon and putting leftover money into their bank accounts or super funds and just enjoying life.


“The property boom of the last eight years in Sydney and Melbourne has been a big advantage for us.”
