Why You Should Invest In Brisbane’s North West

At Calibre Real Estate we think investing in Brisbane’s North West is a wise idea and here we share the many reasons why

  • Are you looking to buy in a city that sees consistent economic growth?

  • Where properties are more affordable and market prospects look bright?

  • A place proving itself to be a hot investment favourite?

Brisbane can offer all of that and more.

In fact, it has so much to offer that it is the number 1 destination for internal migration in Australia. It sees a fair bit of international migration too.

As the third largest and one of the fastest growing cities in Australia, Brisbane is seeing growth at an unprecedented rate.

Driven by significant investment in infrastructure and community amenity, this stunning river city is quickly evolving into a world city

Here are just some of the infrastructure projects currently in the works:

Queens Wharf Resort and Casino is due to launch in 2022. This multi-billion-dollar investment will boast 12 football fields worth of public space and is predicted to draw 4 million new visitors to the city

Northshore Hamilton Ferry Terminal will provide a 3-minute service in peak periods and once completed in 2022, will cover 18 stations

Brisbane Airport will open its second runway in 2020 and is set to increase flights by over a 130,000 a year and create 7,800 new jobs by 2035.

These are just a few of the large-scale projects at hand aiming to improve livability, community amenity whilst creating jobs and demand for property.

This rise in investment and population is only set to continue.

As of 2018, the median dwelling price had risen by 0.9% over a one-year period.

That’s especially impressive when compared with the other major cities in Australia. Over the same period, Sydney took a fall of 5.6% and Melbourne fell by 1.7%.

The above average growth in the market makes Brisbane a wise place to invest.

Which side of the river?

An ongoing debate in Brisbane; North or South?

We say, North wins hands down!

In particular, we believe the North Western pocket of the city encapsulates some of the best aspects of living in Brisbane.

Like what, you ask?

  • An average distance of around 4 km to the CBD

  • Close proximity to the airport

  • Easy access to entertainment precincts like Fortitude Valley

  • Lots of outdoor space

  • Great links to Sunshine Coast

What’s more?

The investment potential in this region is only set to grow.

Whether you’re a family looking for a comfortable home or an investor trying to find the most desirable area, Brisbane’s North West offers tons of potential.
