Investment Area of the Month – May 2017

Posted on May 4, 2017 by Mirren Property Investment

The city of Brisbane and its surrounding areas are starting to boom, and now is the time to invest in the area. With the Gold Coast hosting the Commonwealth Games in just under a year, the government is investing more and more money into infrastructure, transportation, and roads within the area to help manage the amount of people that will flock to the cities during the Games.

As the Sydney market is becoming harder to buy in to or even get a rental property, which is why many people are heading north to QLD to escape.

A great up and coming area just on the outskirts on Brisbane CBD is Richlands. Located 15kms from the CBD, this suburb is set in a prime position within South East Queensland’s western corridor. With its location being still so close to Brisbane, Richlands has a strong economic and population growth.
