Tarragindi: One Of Most In-Demand Suburbs in Queensland

Queensland suburbs are defying the demand downturn that is hitting some of Australia’s biggest housing markets such as Sydney and Melbourne. Tarragindi ranked among most in-demand suburbs in QLD headed by inner-north suburb of Grange, an October property report said.

For the past 12 months, Grange topped the list of the most in-demand suburbs according to the October Property Outlook from realestate.com.au. With Chandler, Burbank, Paddington, Red Hill, Camp Hill, Holland Park, Ashgrove, Tarragindi, and Wilston completing the elite list of most in-demand suburbs.

From one year ago, buyer demand for housing in Brisbane climbed by 1.4 percent. The median price for all dwellings is at $490,000, up by 1.0 percent year-on-year and 1.0 percent quarter-on-quarter. Whilst things are turning well for the Brisbane housing market, Sydney’s and Melbourne’s buyer demand numbers have gone south by as much 23 percent and 20 percent respectively.

The report attributes the QLD’s positive housing demand to better economic conditions in Queensland. The report sees positive outlook over the next 12 months as QLD’s economic performance will continue to pull the housing market up with premium Brisbane suburbs benefiting the most.
