But that is exactly what has happened with a recent report showing Underwood was the highest growth suburb in Queensland over the past 10 years, seeing a whopping 65.5 per cent increase in property prices.
Perennial favourite Ashgrove came in second with 53.4% taking its median house price to over the magic million mark.
Sunnybank, which has seen some years of increasing popularity amongst Chinese buyers, took third place at 50.7 per cent.
Also north of the river was the iconic Brissie burb of Paddo. No surprises there. It rounded out the top #10 clocking up a growth increase of 41.2 per cent.
To the west, St Lucia (46.9 per cent) and Fig Tree Pocket (42.1 per cent) also feature in the top #10.
While Brissie burbs dominated the top #10 list for houses, for units it was a different story with the Gold Coast taking 8 of the 10 top spots, reports Property Update.
