Willow Vale Suburb Profile

 Upper Coomera - Willow Vale populationWillow Vale real estate is dominated by acreage properties. Nestled in the foothills of the Gold Coast Hinterland inland of Upper Coomera and Pimpama, there is a variety of property styles – modern, rustic, vacant land through to luxurious. Some properties have views to the east and south over the north Gold Coast suburbs to the high rise buildings and night lights of Southport and Surfers Paradise.

There is also a pocket of suburbia in an estate that overlaps Willow Vale and Pimpama. This pocket is bordered by acreage and it is not unusual to see horses or cattle grazing beside or across the street from suburban homes.

Willow Vale is a great area to live in if you love horses or just plenty of space and privacy. Although you feel a million miles from anywhere, you are still within the Gold Coast City and close to the important amenities and facilities.

Investors News

The reported rental return on houses in Willow Vale is distorted by the huge range in house prices from luxury acreage property through to average homes on small suburban blocks. For this reason, investors need to look at the investment potential on a property by property basis in Willow Vale.

According to SQM research, the average vacancy rate in the 4209 postcode suburbs – Coomera, Coomera Waters, Pimpama, Upper Coomera and Willow Vale – in February, March and April was just 0.5% to 0.6%. This is down from a respectable 2.1% at the height of the pandemic in April 2020. There are reports of some prospective tenants offering more than the advertised rent to try to secure a property. There is a strong investors market in the North Gold Coast, whereas the rental market has become sluggish in some areas of Australia, particularly less lifestyle-friendly properties such as inner-city units in the major cities.
