    Hi Everyone,

    Been looking at Northside, yet to have a good look on the ground, but stumbled on some things that have a pretty good return, anyway whats your take or experience in this Suburb ?



    What does the regional council slug you for council rates and water ?
    How is the crime ?
    How does it compare to Bracken Ridge - is it only the local council area that makes a big change
    Seems the data shows a drop in growth coming into 2016 (and you can see places with older listings)
    Seems also some parts get poor return, others higher ?
    How do the locals look upon the location, I was thinking of looking for a corner block for future development, may be a waste of time in this area
    Are the schools ok there

    Any other thoughts ?

    Frankly I was looking for closer, 15ks, but seems too hot now.

    There is excellent value in Bracken Ridge and the suburb is in good demand from tenant - five minutes from beautiful Sandgate (train line to CBD) along the waterfront with café and restaurant precinct; many choices of schools; regular Translink bus services; strong growth; local shopping centres; multiple parklands; great value with older homes circa 1970's and 80's on larger parcels of land in comparison to Fitzgibbon (next door suburb) on very small parcels of land
