It all comes down to this … 10 business days until Christmas. Three weeks until the New Year.

It is now a race against time to get a property signed up and settled, then ready to move into for summer holidays and the start of the school year.

Noosa is experiencing tight listings, strong demand and a bright outlook in the run-up to the 2032 Brisbane Olympics.

There is a feeling that buyers nationally as well as internationally are positioning themselves for the next nine years in particular.

Agents are presenting a wide variety of properties to auction over the next two weeks.

A four-bedroom, two-bathroom, two-car house with pool at 13 Seagull Ct, Noosa Waters, goes to the market on Saturday, 9 December, at 3pm.

Peter TeWhata of Tom Offermann Real Estate said it was “a lovely home with a nice, relaxed, tropical feel.’’

Next to a parkland reserve and with only two neighbours, it features a north-facing alfresco area and the pool catches the beautiful afternoon sun.

From the entry foyer, eyes are drawn to a lounge, a study/leisure space which opens to a courtyard plus an expansive living and dining space with the north-facing aspect.

Indoors has seamless connectivity to the massive terrace. Granite is everywhere and totally surrounds the sizeable pool with statement water feature, vine-covered half wall and lower garden of frangipanis.
