Top 5 Suburbs to Buy in the Inner Northern Suburbs of Brisbane
- Hottest Suburb #5 : Everton Park
I (Marlene) went to Everton Park State School so know the area well and its one of my favourites. In Trouts Estate you can get some amazing architecture homes high on the hill. Everton Park is just 9km from the CBD, in a growth corridor. You’ll now find older houses are being demolished and new homes quickly popping up. You can still get a good 600sqm size block of land and a few pockets have lovely city views. Shopping Centres are all being re-vamped and new ones are going in. There’s amazing coffee shops in the suburb.
Hottest Suburb #4 : McDowall
A great family friendly suburb with lots of brick homes ranging in price from around $500k to $900k with leafy parks and walking tracks through Raven Street Reserve. Closer to the city than Bridgeman Downs but some pockets of McDowall remain undiscovered. There are some big beautiful homes in Glendora Estate and off Keona Road. Northside Christian College and McDowall State School are very popular and the suburb provides different routes into the CBD and easy drive along Hamilton Road to the airport.
Hottest Suburb #3 : Albany Creek
Going that smidge further out of town can get you good bang for your buck here, you’d probably pick up a pool too! You can buy a good size house in Albany Creek. A home with 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a 2 car garage and 2 living spaces would normally fetch anywhere from $600,000 to over $1m. Many homes have pools and there’s loads of great schools to choose from in the area. From the city, it is a pretty easy drive along Old Northern Road with express driving from Everton Park area.
Hottest Suburb #2 : Arana Hills
A lovely large suburb heading all the way back towards Bunya State Forest which has some of Brisbane’s best mountain bikes tracks, a baseball field and remote control racing. Perfect for the active enthusiast, Arlington Estate is close to everything. The other side of Arana Hills is closer to the train station and it is fantastic to duck down to $10 T-Bone night at the Arana Leagues Club. Good starter homes in this suburb with easy access to the the train line.
Hottest Suburb # 1 : Stafford Heights / Stafford
Wow, some of the views in these suburbs are amazing! The perfect suburbs for people who maybe can’t quite afford The Grange or Wilston area. The beauty is though, they’ll still be close to everything. Homes in these suburbs typically range from $500,000 to over $1million. I think we will see some great growth in these two suburbs in the years to come. The Stafford Skate Centre is ear marked for development and there’s loads of awesome cafes in the streets.
