CONFIDENCE has hit record levels in the property sector, with Queensland at its highest level since the mining boom, the latest industry survey has found.

Property Council Queensland executive director Chris Mountford said sentiment had jumped by 13 index points since June 2017. Queensland saw its sentiment index go from 127 points in June last year, to 128 in September, 134 in December, 132 in March and now 139.
