With all the bad news dominating the headlines this year with doom and gloom about the property industry in Melbourne and Sydney, you might be forgiven for thinking that Brisbane is tarred with the same brush, but thankfully not so, according to leading property experts. North Harbour’s location Burpengary East, in the Moreton Bay Region, north of Brisbane, is performing well and is well worth a look for anyone buying houses in 2019!
Daniel Walsh of investment buyer’s agency Your Property Your Wealth says investment activity has now firmly shifted to Queensland. “Net migration has now overtaken Melbourne due to the affordability that Brisbane has to offer,” he explained.
“We’re also seeing rising demand particularly in the housing sector in southeast Queensland where yields are high, and jobs are increasing due to the amount of government expenditure around infrastructure which is attracting families to the Sunshine State.
“With Brisbane’s population growth at 1.6 per cent and surrounding areas like Moreton Bay at 2.2 per cent…we are forecasting that Brisbane will be the standout performer over the next three to five years.” Read the full article on news.com.au here.
