THE sale of basic brick homes in city markets has long given cashed-up interstate investors the chance to buy big on the Fraser Coast.
But now locals are increasingly in the luxury listing mix, according to a local real estate expert.
Real Estate Institute of Queensland Fraser Coast chair Damian Raxach said top-end buyers were coming locally as well as from inter/intra state.
"This is definitely a new phenomenon," Mr Raxach said.
"The interstate buyers are definitely active and finding a lot of value in our region where a proper luxury home goes for the same as the median price in their home town."
While there are still some properties above the million-dollar mark, agents like PRDnationwide Maryborough's Tom Hagan said you could still get luxury river-front properties for under $600,000.
