The Sunshine Coast has so much to offer that it will be hard not to simply pack up and move if you’re the lucky winner in Mater draw #294. Everything will be right there waiting for you – the sun, the sand, and that beautiful new house.

If you’re not quite ready to make the break, however, this home is perfectly situated for a holiday rental. Thousands of people flock to the Sunshine Coast every year, and you’ll have no trouble renting out your residence for a healthy second income. You can expect to receive around $62,400 a year if you rent it fully furnished, and your overhead will be minimal when everything a holiday tenant could need is already in place.

Selling is always an option, and you can create your own millionaire lifestyle on the proceeds. Property values are climbing, however, so hanging on for a few more years will only increase your ultimate winnings. Whether you rent to holiday makers or find a full-time tenant, this home is a great investment when it comes to planning for your own retirement one day.
