10 Reasons To Invest In Ipswich

10 Reasons To Invest In Ipswich

We’re almost three months in to 2017 and it’s set to be a huge year for us at Stroud Homes Brisbane West, and the greater Ipswich area.

If you’re looking to build an investment home this year and still haven’t settled on a location, here are 10 reasons why Ipswich should be on your radar.

  1. Over 5,000 house sales are expected during 2017 – this is double the number of home sales just 5 years ago.
  2. The number of properties listed for sale continues to decline.
  3. Property values are continuing to rise and this is expected to accelerate throughout 2017.
  4. The rental vacancy rate is tight and even lower than last year – which means investment properties are more likely to be filled by tenants.
  5. Weekly rents are rising and expected to continue to increase further during 2017.
  6. Ipswich’s population and job growth is expected to double in the next 10 years.
  7. The region has a much younger demographic than most of South East Queensland.
  8. Detached houses will be in strong demand, on a variety of allotment sizes, with more homes catering to multiple tenants (designs like duplexes and granny flats).
  9. Brisbane West – especially Ipswich – is undersupplied with new housing.
  10. Whilst the Ipswich housing market is improving, the strength of the current recovery is somewhat mild compared to past cycles.
