Brendan Styles from C-Finance Brokers is an expert mortgage and financial advisor and has many years of experience working with to find the best suburbs in Australia for property investment. We asked him to share his advice on how to find the best suburbs for property investment.
“Currently we are seeing strong movement in properties in the north Brisbane/ Moreton Bay region. With reduced interest rates, increased loan amounts for interest only loans and lower serviceability rates, investors can now generate a positive return from residential property from long-term investment in property in suburbs in the north Brisbane / Moreton Bay region (including Burpengary and Burpengary East).
“Investors obviously want return on their investment. And to generate return, they look for growth, infrastructure, schools, all of which are on offer in the Moreton Bay region, particularly in and around North Harbour’s suburb of Burpengary East and the adjoining suburb of Burpengary.
“Real Estate in Burpengary East has shown strong growth in the past few years which we can attribute to this suburb’s close access to the highway, excellent amenities and a strong community. This growth is set to continue as the community itself grows.
“Investment in infrastructure has shown solid growth with the Burpengary Plaza (located about 8 minutes’ drive from North Harbour) having received a major $38 million upgrade and extension which added 9697sqm of floor space, including 30 new speciality stores and a 6700sqm Kmart, as well as 350 new car spaces. The existing 3645sqm Woolworths supermarket was also fully refurbished by the supermarket chain to incorporate their latest store design and features.
“The local sports grounds have also had a $13M upgrade including a brand new swimming pool complex.
“According to Moreton Bay Regional Council, the wider region is expected to be home to more than 620,000 residents by 2036 and the Burpengary East and Burpengary areas will be a major hub for future growth.”
