Brisbane and its greater region is a veritable goldmine of opportunity for new homebuyers. There has been no better time to build your dream home within Queensland’s capital, where you can enjoy a sense of community while residing in modern convenience.
Numerous home and land estates – even some offering country lifestyles – abound within easy grasp of Brisbane’s CBD. And the common denominator emerging from these developments is relaxed living combined with value for money.
Here are various precincts in the north, south east and west which stand out for their potential: North -Bridgeman Downs, Caboolture, Fitzgibbon, Griffin, Lawnton, Mango Hill, Narangba, North Lakes; South – Rochedale, Doolandella, Holmview, Stretton, Waterford; East – Victoria Point, Manly West; West – Bellbird Park, Brassall, Fernvale, Redbank Plains, Springfield Lakes.
Most of these house and land packages are situated only 30-60 minutes from Brisbane – one of the nation’s most appealing cities with a combination of the old and the new.
The river that snakes through the heart of town reflects a sub-tropical environment which is pristine, colourful, adventurous, inviting and open.
Brisbane really has it all: you can spend lazy afternoons ordering creamy cappuccinos and dozing by the river, or step it up a notch by throwing yourself into any number of adventures such as abseiling the cliffs at Kangaroo Point, climbing the Story Bridge or splashing out with all kinds of water sports.
And there’s simply no better place in Queensland to indulge in retail therapy with over 650 stores trading seven days a week.
Or, for something a little more cultural, there are musicals, live theatre, galleries, museums, and even guided walking tours of downtown’s historical sites.
Brisbane also has a fine reputation for dining out, having developed its own unique cuisine that matches the climate perfectly.
And it’s the perfect hub for exploring its wide variety of outer lying regions. Spectacular Moreton Bay beckons with its expansive waterways and myriad of islands, as does the white sand surf beaches of the Gold and Sunshine coasts. The regional hinterland is a well-kept secret worthy of exploration, filled with arts, crafts and interesting characters.
A report by property experts KPMG predicted Brisbane will have 46 per cent more dwellings in 2031 than 2001. And by 2021, the population of the Greater Brisbane area is projected to be in excess of 3 million residents. Compared to other capital cities, Brisbane is expected to maintain one of the highest rates of growth for the nation.
The Housing Industry of Australia (HIA) in its housing to 2020 report estimates that the Queensland property market will be home to an additional 379,600 households by 2020. In order to satisfy this additional demographic demand, the stock of dwellings in Queensland will need to grow by approximately 42,200 homes per year through to 2020.
