Brighter Buying

This gentrifying north Brissie burb is on the expert tip list

by Kate Watt, Marketing Manager 20 January 2022

Another week, another property commentator offers up tips for the year ahead.

This week we’re sharing tips and a caution from Michael Yardney at Property Update. Contrary to other crystal ball gazers, he’s advising against jumping on the Woolloongabba Olympic bandwagon, flagging potential oversupply issues.

Instead he’s tipping nearby Dutton Park as a better option, as well as Mount Gravatt and here on the northside he’s singled out Stafford – a suburb we know is a perennial favourite amongst the up-and-comers.

Here’s what Property Update has to say about our savvy suburb of Stafford:

“Stafford is a suburb really starting to gentrify and is seeing the benefit from the ripple effect.

“Thought of as a poor cousin to nearby inner-city suburbs, it is (now) becoming a lot more affordable and highly desirable (from) the next generation of owner occupiers heading into family formation and priced out of the more expensive inner ring.

“The more elevated pockets are fast becoming highly sought after for the outlook and potential city views.

“With no character restrictions in place many are attracted by the knock down rebuild option inner city suburbs may not present due to character restrictions.”
