Named after the famous Brazilian Beach, Copacabana has emerged as a very popular destination across all real estate sectors.
Well renowned as a surfing beach, Copacabana is tucked away from the noise and traffic and offers a laid back lifestyle and a slower pace compared to its sister beaches.
‘Copa’ draws surfers from across the globe and many a professional surfer grew up honing their skills here. Plus there is great fishing, swimming for the littlies in the tidal rockpool, kayaking on the lake and bush walks. Captain Cook Lookout right up on the point has a whale watching platform with a vista north, south and out to sea. The 8km Coastal Walk is one of the most popular bushwalks and the Copa to MacMasters walk along the beach is a great way to keep fit.
The Surf Club is newly renovated and has a café open early to late. It is a popular venue for functions and greatly supports the Life Saving community. There is a small shopping strip opposite the beach with essentials such as doctor, pharmacy, newsagent, general store, bottle shop, cafes and bakery.
2,690 residents (as at May ’20) call Copacabana home, with the suburb having a median house price of $800,000, reflecting a 42.3% growth rate over the past 5 years – great statistics for such a small seaside town. Retaining the quiet, beachy feel is a most alluring prospect for those wishing to relocate from the city.
Similarly, the rental market continues to grow with a median price (as at May ’20) of $600 representing a 15.4% increase over the past 5 years. The demand for holiday properties has surged in the past 5 years as this little gem has been discovered. Such a great range on offer – modern splendour or that beach cottage reminiscent of childhood holidays.
Nestled between Avoca and MacMasters Beaches, this little pearl has certainly proven itself. Come and see for yourself – you won’t be disappointed.
We just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to Tim Wooodham for selling our home. You were the ultimate professional at all times and were always so polite, respectful and calm, so calm! which we really appreciated. We were confident in how you chose to market our home and were always kept well informed of any developments. Any concerns we had were openly discussed and acted upon immediately. We could not have asked for any more from our agent. We will not hesitate to have you list our home again in the future and will certainly recommend you to whoever will listen. All the very best.
We recently sold our house at Copacabana with Tim Woodham. His knowledge of the market and skills in selling were clearly evident, he kept us closely informed at all stages of the sale, and I felt our input and expectations were valued by him. At no time did we feel pressured or unsure, and his experience in the overall process was greatly reassuring.
We were delighted that the Sale of our property was achieved within three weeks. We attribute this success to the professional manner in which Tim Woodham and the Staff of George Brand at Copacabana handled the process. We found Tim to be very easy to liaise with and he communicated frequently throughout the Marketing and Sales period. Tim's calm and confident approach ensured that the Sale went smoothly and without any stress to us. We have no hesitation in recommending Tim Woodham to look after your property needs.
