Mermaid Waters outshines beachfront neighbour

The result comes as no surprise to Luke Henderson, a leading real estate agent in the area and a director of John Henderson Professionals Mermaid Beach.
Mr Henderson said he believed the prices of homes in Mermaid Waters had jumped $100,000 since the start of 2015.
"During 2014 Mermaid Waters enjoyed reasonable price growth but this year the market has really taken off,'' said Mr Henderson.
"Our office has seen the demand for properties Mermaid Waters surge throughout 2015."
Agent Andre Sharples, who has recorded a string of recent sales in the area, said one particular sale highlighted how much the market had changed in the past 12 months.
"We recently sold a home on a dry block at 16 Bowline Road, Mermaid Waters on the market,'' said Mr Sharples.
"In that case, the vendors first put the property on the market some time ago and they were looking to accept offers around $583,000 but had struggled to get any interest.
"However, after a change in agents and change in marketing tactics, the property changed hands for $650,000,"
