Brighter Buying

#10 Most affordable suburbs with CBD proximity

by Kate Watt, Marketing Manager 24 March 2022

Want an inner-city pad for an outer-suburb price tag? It probably won’t happen. But we get it, all buyers hope their real-life budget will place them as close as possible to their dream-location.

So how do you go about getting the best bang for your buck, particularly when Brissie property prices have sky-rocketed in recent years?

It comes down to identifying suburbs that offer relative affordability compared to their neighbouring burbs.

Domain recently published a list of Brissie burbs in the coveted 10km ring that still offer housing in the $600k and $700k price range.

Chermside is a great option for the value hunter. Its median price is still under $800,000 and its location is hard to beat.

You have easy access to the city via major roads and public transport. But you won’t need to go anywhere with the mega-metropolis of Westfield Chermside on your doorstep. There’s a range of housing stock, including units, that can cater to entry level buyers too.

But for those who want to live spitting distance to the CBD, you’ll need a bigger budget.

Check them out below.
