It comes as no surprise that streets on the southern Gold Coast have been dominating property searches for some time, but the number one most-viewed street is somewhat harder to explain.
Researchers at realestate.com.au have analysed data from their property portal over the past three years to February and determined where the most in-demand streets are, based on views per listing.
Coming in as the number one most-viewed street on the Gold Coast was … San Mateo Boulevard, Ashmore.
CoreLogic data shows only four properties have changed hands in that street over the past three years, ranging in price between $550,000 and $690,000.
The most recent sale on San Mateo Boulevard was number 16, which sold in May 2019 for $550,000.
The sale was handled by agent Darrell Johnson, of Knobel & Davis Real Estate, who said there was no obvious explanation for a high volume of views on that street.
“Wow, that really blows me away,” Mr Johnson said.
“I mean it’s a nice, quiet area in an elevated position but I more or less sold that property (16 Mateo Boulevard) off-market.
“The only thing I can think of is that Ashmore is a great value, highly sought-after suburb so maybe people are searching for well-priced homes in that pocket.”
Ladds Ridge Rd, Burleigh Heads was the second most-viewed street, while Ardisia Court, Burleigh Heads came in at number five.
Number 11A Ladds Ridge Rd changed hands in February for $735,000 — the four-bedroom home is positioned in a rainforest-like setting and only minutes walk to Tallebudgera Creek.
Streets in southern Gold Coast suburbs dominated the top 10, including Ambonia Ave, Palm Beach (number 4); Avocado Street, Elanora (6); Balsa Street, Elanora (8); and Barracuda Court, Palm Beach (9).
Nerida Conisbee, realestate.com.au Chief Economist, said the most-viewed results were on par with the high demand for property on the Southern Gold Coast.
“We’ve been following the Southern Gold Coast trend for some time now,” Ms Conisbee said.
“It’s not surprising many southern Gold Coast streets are popular as it is consistent with the popularity of southern Gold Coast suburbs.”
Among other most-viewed streets was Altissimo Close, Varsity Lakes where homes sold in the past three years ranged in price from $532,000 to $680,000.
Avonbury Court, Carrara was the seventh most-searched-for street on the Gold Coast, while Barrandine Crescent, Helensvale was number ten.
