As Queensland gears up for the Commonwealth Games, investors are anticipating action in the property market.
If history is any indication, the Gold Coast property market is likely to see a considerable boost when the 2018 Commonwealth Games roll into town.
PRDnationwide national research manager Asti Mardiasmo said hosting games in the past had shown significant benefits to the host cities.
"We've tried to learn what happened in Sydney and Melbourne previously," she said.
"The main thing that we can see is that the benefit of the Commonwealth Games is not just felt in the year that the games are held, but it's actually felt two, three, four years down the track. It's actually quite sustainable down the track."
