The Sunshine Coast is undeniably coming into its own, not only as a holiday destination but a place to live and work, while still living that low-key beachside lifestyle we all dream of. With the Maroochydore City Centre currently under development, this transformation is set to continue well into the future. Unlike the Gold Coast, prices for apartments on the Sunshine Coast remain affordable for first-home buyers, especially when you consider buying off-the-plan. And for downsizers after a little luxury, the Sunshine Coast also offers some premium residences right on the waterfront that will have all your friends and family oohing and aahing with jealousy. So, without further ado, we present our picks for the top 5 apartments currently available to buy off-the-plan on the Sunshine Coast.
