How to buy a property in Brisbane and Queensland?

How to buy a property in Brisbane and Queensland?

Brisbane housing options include the famous Queenslander or stilt house. You can buy a property in Brisbane and Queensland either by private treaty or auction. Your finances, requirements with respect to amenities, and lifestyle preferences will determine where you buy as Brisbane house prices and rentals range from expensive to very affordable. View our moving guide to Australia for property tips.

The Brisbane housing market experienced significant growth during Covid as people moved to the relatively Covid-free state to avoid ongoing lockdowns in other states. This pushed house prices up, although they are still significantly cheaper than either Sydney or Melbourne. However, property prices in the city are predicted to fall by up to 12% over the next 12 months. The median house price is expected to be around $720,000.
