Unlike Sydney and Melbourne, most suburbs sit almost on the inner fringes of Brisbane which is the working capital of QLD. A short commute in moderate traffic gets you into the CBD.
OR they live in burgeoning satellite cities such as Ipswich, Sunshine Coast or Logan
Most people living in the tropics of Queensland subscribe to a quality of life provided by the sea, the mountains, clean air and quality life!
Queensland has a wonderful and strong rental market and is a little shy on capital growth unlike Sydney and Melbourne
Queensland is known for its mining and agriculture and attracts a significant amount of workers to satisfy the employment needs of these industries. Having said that, Brisbane is home to many corporate head offices and provides a strong employment opportunity for white collared employees.
The Brisbane Apartment Market is strong as affordability to buy a house or unit diminishes … which lends more comfort to outer suburbs that meet this level of affordability quite comfortably.
The fast rail trail service into Brisbane has also made further outlying suburbs a lot more accessible to the CBD plus the fact that the freeways provide excellent arterials in and out of the CBD.
Queensland was devastated by the floods which created a new rental and owner occupied market by those who were affected. Once Queensland overcomes the effects of these disasters it has been noted that the economy will once again gain momentum and with it comes new employment opportunities and a strengthening of the property market.
If you intend to invest in mining town locations, remember that once the infrastructure to these towns has been provided … full-time employment will drop significantly from tens of thousands down to only thousands and the result is an over-supply of property and no one to buy up or rent the dwellings vacated by those previously employed to build the mines and towns!
Property is a medium to long-term Investment Vehicle and is not a speculative product. Mining towns will exceed expectations in the short-term … ask yourself what happens to your Investment when the majority move on?
Most of the fringe suburbs and growing satellite cities are well serviced by Schools, Shopping, Entertainment, Hospitals, Public Transport, Jobs etc
