A SURFERS Paradise house has been snapped up in a multimillion-dollar deal before it even hit the market.
The renovated coastal-style home sold to international buyers in a $4 million off-market sale.

Ray White Prestige agent Jackson Paradise, who inked the deal, said the New Zealand buyers planned to move across the ditch.
“I showed them around a few properties but they fell in love with this one because of its 1108sq m block, which is very rare being so close to the city,” he said.
“There’s not many houses as high quality in Surfers Paradise on large land, that’s what makes it so rare and why it was snapped up so quickly.”
The five-bedroom property at 3 Inga Ave featured modern, light-filled interiors and a large backyard with a covered entertainment zone, pool and pontoon.
The vendors sold the property to build a brand-new home for their family locally.
Mr Paradise said he had plenty of high-end buyers who were seeking luxury properties, with not enough stock to meet demand.
“If it did go to market it would have had a huge amount of inspections and inquiries and there are a few people who are upset it sold prior,” he said.
“I have leftover clients looking at this level of home.
“The high-end market is going from strength to strength with more and more inquiry from interstate purchasers.
“If you are considering putting your house on the market, I’d do it before Christmas because there’s a lot of activity at the moment.”
It was Mr Paradise’s second off-market deal for the week with a block of 15 units in Southport selling for $6.6 million.
The brand-new apartment block at 115 Minnie St is believed to have been purchased by a government department.
Mr Jackson declined to comment about the sale or the purchaser.
The sales form part of a string of seven-figure deals penned recently.
One of the latest is a Mediterranean-inspired residence at 18 Binda Place, Sorrento, which changed hands for $3.5 million. Michael Kollosche and Josh Longhitano marketed the five-bedroom house.
It was listed with a $3.75 million asking price.
Mr Longhitano said a Sydney couple looking to move back to the Gold Coast after a few years interstate loved the style, character and resort-style feel of the property.
There have been 15 sales above the million-dollar mark since the start of the month, according to realestate.com.au data.
