But there’s still plenty of real estate bargains to be had and the southeast is still largely undervalued compared to southern states. Recent trends would suggest that prices here will continue to climb, but at a steady pace, rather than the skyrocketing home prices seen in Sydney.
So where should buyers be looking?
For first home buyers on the northside of Brisbane, the suburbs of Woody Point, Stafford, Banyo, Boondall and Aspley are hot property.
Woody Point in particular is looking great – right on the water and the new Redcliffe rail line means easy access to the city.
Families heading to the northside are advised to look to Bracken Ridge, Wavell Heights, Red Hill, Grange and Shorncliffe.
These suburbs all have ready access to public transport, good schools and plenty of green spaces, perfect for family living.
If you’re shopping for the top end of town, Bridgeman Downs, Ashgrove, Clayfield and Hamilton are the northern suburbs with plenty to offer.
Brisbane and the southeast are in a good position and with our enviable lifestyle, opportunities and climate, it’s only going to get better.
