Brighter Buying

#10 Brissie burbs where you can snag a unit for under $500k

by Kate Watt, Marketing Manager 7 March 2024

Buying within 10km of the city centre for under half a million remains a reality in Brisbane.

In fact there are 10 Brissie burbs with median price tags for units below $500,000… and they’re a cheap Uber ride – or walk – from the city centre.

Here on the northside, Stafford offers unit buyers great value with a median price of $475,000, according to the Domain House Price Report.

That puts you right in the middle of a continually gentrifying hot spot, with change in your pocket to enjoy it.

For a city centre vibe without the city centre hassle, Chermside offers units with a median price tag of $490,000.

And if you’re after more of a northside urban village feel, try Northgate ($471,000) or Nundah ($475,000).
