I'm buying in Brisbane very shortly. My belief is that things look bright over the next 3-5 years. With two consecutive blows (GFC, floods), Brisbane prices were atypically depressed. The discrepancy between median house prices in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane sees Brisbane at the bottom of the heap by an unusually large margin. Money goes a lot further in Brisbane now, twice as far as Sydney (based on median price houses). Lots of investors and home buyers are priced out of Sydney and Melbourne now. Record low rates. Things are heating up in pockets but overall things aren't crazy. Yet. The Aussie dollar looks headed further south which will stimulate tourism which makes up a small but significant sliver of the QLD economy. And lots of growth drivers are in place but without a crystal ball, no one can know what will happen. I wouldn't be surprised if we see insignificant growth over the next year or so but I would be a little surprised if the following period doesn't see reasonable growth. What are your thoughts on Brisbane (prospects, areas of interest or to avoid etc)? Who's looking to buy in Brisbane this year or next? Thoughts/comments?
