Colleen Coyne Property Research Pty Limited (CCPR) specialises in project-specific research. We go beyond the raw data to analyse and interpret the dynamics driving property markets. We bring over forty years of experience in understanding both residential and commercial markets across Australia to this process. Our reports are tailor-made to assist our clients in their decision-making.
We have worked extensively in Sydney’s growth corridors (South West Sydney, the Central Coast, the Lower Hunter and South Coast/Illawarra) and in South East Queensland, particularly the Gold Coast, Tweed and Scenic Rim. While we operate across all market sectors, we have a strong knowledge base relating to coastal properties and lifestyle properties such as waterfront and golf course estates.
UDIA (Qld) WID Award
In 2011, I was proud to be awarded the UDIA (Qld)'s Women in Development Excellence Award for Industry Support Services. I consider this was recognition of my career over decades in property research. During this time, I have been able to contribute to the industry through my publications, my mentoring of younger researchers and my consulting work for our mainly development company clients.
Smith Collective Launched
The Smith Collective is Australia's largest build-to-rent project, with 1,170 apartments in 18 towers and 82 townhouses. Developed by Grocon and UBS Asset Management for use as the Commonwealth Games Athletes' Village, it is located at Parklands at Southport on the Gold Coast. It has recently been launched into the rental market, offering lease terms of six months to two years. This project is featured in our November 2018 newsletter, SEQ Defies National Trend, which can be downloaded from our newsletters page.
The newsletter highlights the way in which South East Queensland (SEQ), apart from the Brisbane apartment market, is defying the downturn in median prices and activity in Sydney and Melbourne, which make up a significant portion of Australia's national market. Key attributes of the current SEQ market include: higher net interstate migration, job creation, the pipeline of major infrastructure projects, the constrained outlook for new apartment supply and on the Gold Coast, low residential vacancy rates. The newsletter provides a detailed analysis of resale capital gains and losses and buyer profiles/origins for selected apartment buildings in Inner Brisbane and on the Gold Coast.
