Creekside Townhouses have the future in mind & property investors see the great opportunity!

Demographic and economic drivers for this region

Thornlands and Victoria Point's total population is projected to increase by 35% between 2016 and 2036, from 30,723 people to 41,537 people. (after an increase of 61%, from 19,096 to 30,723 people between 2000 - 2016)*.

These townhouses are a solid investment with a strong yield and a long term well established market on the bayside. Stage 1, 2, 3, 5, & 6 are already registered.

Much like the rest of the State of Queensland and Australia, the local population is predicted to age, with the 'Healthy Retirement' and 'Elderly' demographic set to experience the highest growth rate between 2016 and 2036, at 73% and 139% respectively. An ageing population base will heighten demand for smaller, lower maintenance properties, which enable residents to enhance their lifestyle by lessening the ongoing burden of property maintenance.

Whilst it’s important to acknowledge the forthcoming ageing population shift, the continued prominence of those aged within the ‘Family Formation’ and 'Education' stages of life, should not be overlooked. Combined, these two cohorts are expected to make up a healthy 52% share of the region’s population in 2036.

Those aged within the Family Formation stage includes the bulk of the regions labour force, whilst those aged in the Education stage are the inspiration for most household expenditures, the sustained prevalence of these two age groups will play an integral role in maintaining strength and resilience in the local economy.

Overall, the growth earmarked for Thornlands and Victoria Point region will have a considerable impact on the local housing market. Based on the conservative assumption that the number of persons per dwelling was to remain stagnant, this growth in population would create demand for an additional 3,827 residential dwellings to be built within Thornlands and Victoria Point between 2016 and 2036.
