Here are some of our most common questions our clients ask

Why is Kenmore QLD a great place to buy a home or investment property?

accordion icon

Brisbane, which is in the state of Queensland (QLD) in Australia, can be a great place to buy a home or investment property for a few reasons. Here are a few reasons to be looking at Brisbane real estate & property.

Kenmore is a riverside suburb in the City of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. In the 2021 census, Kenmore had a population of 9,675 people. Wikipedia

  1. Climate and Lifestyle: Brisbane has a warm and sunny climate, which means you can enjoy outdoor activities most of the year. There are lots of parks, beaches, and fun things to do, which can make living there really enjoyable.
  2. Growing City: Brisbane is a city that's getting bigger and busier. More people are moving there, which can be good for property values. As more people want to live in the city, the demand for homes can increase, which might mean the value of your property could go up over time.
  3. Economic Opportunities: Brisbane is a hub for various industries, like technology, tourism, and education. This means there are lots of job opportunities. When people have jobs and can afford to buy homes, it can help the property market stay strong.
  4. Affordability: Compared to some other big cities in Australia like Sydney and Melbourne, the cost of living and property prices in Brisbane can be more affordable. This might make it easier for you to buy a home or investment property there.
  5. Development and Infrastructure: The city is growing, and there are often new buildings, roads, and facilities being built. This development can make the city more attractive to people and investors, potentially leading to better property values.

However, remember that buying a home or investment property is a big decision, and it's important to do thorough research. The team at Zest are always happy to help too, so just get in touch, we've a 99% loan approvals success rate and a comprehensive range of lenders we work with (over 60 lenders!) to find the perfect loan features and monthly repayments for your needs.
