Why You Should Invest In Brisbane’s Property Market

Why You Should Invest In Brisbane’s Property Market

To many it might feel like the Sydney property market is difficult to penetrate in terms of property investments. Seeing as most suburbs within 50km of the city’s central business district have a median house price higher than $500 000, this sentiment is understandable. However, if you still want to reap the benefits of investing in Australia’s profitable property investment market, there are some great options, and today we’ll be looking at one of the best: Brisbane.

 

Why Brisbane

Recent projections show that the Brisbane property market is well on its way to showing some great growth opportunities for property investors. Paired with the fact that the amount of council areas in Greater Brisbane like Logan, Ipswitch and Moreton Bay have a large amount of suburbs with very affordable median house prices, means that it can give a great return for investors.

 

Invest closer to the CBD

If you feel that you want to invest in property that’s closer to a large CBD, you should consider Brisbane. One of the city suburbs, Bracken Ridge, has a median house price of $495 000, and is less than 20 kilometres from the city’s central business district. Better still, the suburb was also a beneficiary of the state-funded transport upgrade, which has helped to reduce commuting times.

 

Interstate migration

Due to the price discrepancies between cities like Sydney and Brisbane, we’ve been seeing a large amount of interstate migration, which makes sense. One of the strongest driving factors for people is affordability. When you combine Brisbane’s developed and affordable real estate offerings, it makes sense that more people are moving to this bustling city. This also means that if you are looking for a property to invest in that has tremendous potential, you should definitely keep your eyes on Brisbane.

Next Capital City to Boom

Next Capital City to Boom

Hi Everyone,

Just a brief note for the end of the week to share a couple of stories which resonate with me in relation to information we have been compiling over the course of 2013. “Brisbane will be the next Australian capital city to take off, according to a panel of property experts.” These two articles should be of interest to everyone who is looking to invest in the Australian property market as it relates to two of the most dynamic state capitals in the nation.

Kind Regards
Dr Andrew Unterweger

Brisbane will be the next Australian capital city to take off, according to a panel of property
experts.
Speaking at a recent Smart Property Investment roundtable, Propertyology’s Simon Pressley, Destiny Financial Solutions’ Margaret Lomas, property lecturer and author Peter Koulizos, Empower Wealth’s Ben Kingsley and ProSolution Private Client’s Stuart Wemyss all agreed Brisbane would be the best performer over the next two to four years.

Mr Pressley said it would be “Brisbane by a mile”. However, Mr Wemyss contended Sydney
would remain a top performer.
Ms Lomas, however, said even if Sydney continued its solid performance, investors would be
smart to look at Brisbane.

“If you’re considering today, you’ll get better growth in Brisbane,” she said. “A lot of this has
already happened in six months in Sydney. They’ll probably both perform equally, but the base
is lower in Brisbane.”
Mr Pressley said Sydney will continue to perform better than the Sydney average, but said he
wouldn’t invest in the New South Wales capital “because of affordability”. read more …

 


Sydney buyers losing power in marketplace

Homebuyers and investors in Sydney are becoming disempowered and have less room to negotiate as the market heats up, according to a leading property analyst.

Speaking at a Multifocus Properties and Finance event last night in Sydney, RP Data’s national research director, Tim Lawless, said the Sydney market currently favours sellers rather than buyers.

According to Mr Lawless, it is taking an average of 44 days to sell a property across Australia’s capital cities, but the most recent data indicates this number is as low as 27 days in Sydney.

 “We’ve seen buyers become disempowered,” he said. “There is less negotiation in the marketplace.”

Mr Lawless said rental yields in Sydney were also being eroded due to the high capital gains the city is experiencing, combined with slow-moving rents. He said this trend is difficult to overcome in the current market because it’s less likely investors will be able to nab a bargain.
