Brighter Buying

#5 Northside Brissie burbs on the investor radar

by Kate Watt, Marketing Manager 8 June 2023

Brisbane remains firmly on the investor radar thanks to its relative affordability compared to southern capitals, but also our growth prospects in the near and longer terms as we charge towards the 2032 Olympics.

But like any city, Brisbane has some suburbs that will do well and others that won’t. So how do you pick where the smart money is set to invest?

Property Update has been eyeing off Brisbane for some time now. For entry level buying, they find it hard to go past the middle ring suburbs of Brisbane’s northside.

Check out their tips and suburbs-to-watch here on the north.

  • Chermside West is a great value, gentrifying suburb with popular schools, and proximity to neighbouring “satellite city” Chermside.
  • Stafford Heights offers lofty city views without an inner city price tag. Proximity to the eclectic cafes and shopping centres of Stafford, including a Bunnings and cinema, make this a convenient spot.
  • Mitchelton offers a thriving café scene courtesy of Blackwood Street and the convenience of the large, if somewhat dated, Brookside shopping centre. A train station and choice of popular schools complete the appeal.
  • Everton Park is a popular option for families seeking great value. A mix of post war and brick homes, as well as newer townhome developments, provide diverse housing options.
  • Keperra offers great value for first time and family buyers in an established suburb on a train line with proximity to parks, schools and shops. A high percentage of owner occupiers are a good prospect for future growth.
