#10 Most affordable middle ring suburbs

by Kate Watt, Marketing Manager 13 June 2019

Think you need a half a million dollars to get on the property ladder these days? Think again.

Brisbane’s middle ring suburbs offer exceptionally well-priced suburbs between 10km and 20km from the CBD.
For as little as $325,000 you can buy a unit in the first home buyer hot spot of Zillmere. If a house is on your horizon, look slightly further out to Strathpine and you’ll nab a first time cheapie for a median price of $437,500.
If you’re looking south of the river – we won’t hold that against you – then you’ve got a few more options, reports Domain.
Try Runcorn, Calamvale, Richlands or Capalaba for entry level unit buying.
Inala, Acacia Ridge, Thorneside and Durack are the pick of the bunch for houses. Strathpine is looking pretty good now isn’t it? It’s got a great shopping centre and commercial hub around Gympie Road. And its own train station which places it firmly in the growth corridor extending out through Petrie – soon to be home to its own university – and Redcliffe, which continues to enjoy a renaissance since the extension of the rail line.
Zillmere is in a prime position too, close to major hubs like Chermside Westfield and home to its own conveniences and rail line.
