Consumers in Queensland Show Confidence

By Andrew Bell

Queensland has bucked the national trend and recorded a higher score in the Consumer Sentiment Index (CSI).

Nationally there has been a decline of the CSI by 2.1 per cent but Queensland experienced a jump of 3.9 per cent, according to the latest CSI by Westpac Melbourne Institute.

The September increase comes on top of the August rise of 7.4 per cent, bringing the region's CSI up to 110.7 points.

Those considering Surfers Paradise property can be assured that the Newman government is taking the region's economy in the right direction, according to Treasurer and Minister for Trade Tim Nicholls.

"Our economy is set to grow at around 4 per cent over the next three years and our employment growth of 2.25 per cent in 2013-14 is double the national growth rate," he said.

Queensland's economic boom mean there has never been a better time to invest in Main Beach property.

Housing finance approvals have grown at a faster rate than in other states across the country, so now could also be a good time for buyers who want to secure real estate in Surfers Paradise.
