'Phenomenal' unit sells for 10 times the median price
A BUILDING record in Mooloolaba has been smashed out of the park with the sale of a three-bedroom unit for 10 times the suburb's median price.
A family from Toowoomba sold their apartment in the Sea Pearl building on Mooloolaba Esplanade for a whopping $4.4 million yesterday.
The median unit price in the high-demand area was $405,000.
The three-bathroom, double car space apartment was on the market for less than a month before it was sold, Simon Guilfoyle of G1 Property told The Courier-Mail.
"This is the highest price fetched for this building. It's possibly the second highest along the Mooloolaba esplanade," he said.
"It's a phenomenal building and the quality of the product is the best in Mooloolaba. They are rarely traded as well."
The stunning views across the water and the apartment's 274sq m size helped drive the price up, as well as the fact that stock in the area was tightly held.
"Mooloolaba is coming into its own. In terms of new buildings of 10 stories or higher, there's only been three in the last 12 years, so it's stock that's tightly held," Mr Guilfoyle said.
