Recent reports have shown that the east coast city of Brisbane has seen more uphill trend following the downturn of home prices in Sydney and Melbourne. According to the latest land valuation from state governments, suburbs in Brisbane showed impressive growth of 5% to 15%. This data is according to the 2018 statewide valuation of more than 1 million properties.
The positive report puts Brisbane property investors at ease despite the influx of apartments as houses in select suburbs have shown 8% to 10% price growth in the last year and are sustained by increasing land values.
While there is an evident increase in price, property in the suburbs is still relatively affordable with the median house price still under $1 million. This puts Brisbane on a pedestal for being the next hot spot for property investments joining Hobart as one of the only cities to record growth early this year.
If you’re on a lookout for investment opportunities and growth, Brisbane’s best growth suburbs may be the place you should be looking closely into this year.
