The Verdict

The $250k price tag and +$17/wk cash-flow just make it so affordable. On top of the great rental return, it’s on a 1,172sqm block and is listed a little ($10k) below the APM appraisal.


The rental income and tax rebates for this property offset all of the expenses and more, so it’s cash-flow positive and will cost you nothing to own and hold, putting $17/wk back into your pocket. When you consider the $250k price tag this property scores an A+ for affordability.

High capital growth potential

Here’s what Australia’s leading property researcher and Director of Hotspotting.com.au, Terry Ryder, says about the Logan City Region…

“Our research shows that affordability plus commuter train links plus proximity to jobs nodes is a powerful combination in driving good capital growth and that is part of Logan City’s appeal.


  • Affordable properties
  • Good rental yields
  • Strong road and rail links
  • Emerging industrial parks
  • $600 million retirement village
  • Diverse industries providing jobs
  • Central location between Brisbane CBD and Gold Coast


This property has been listed at $250,000. The estimated market value of the property is $260,000 (sign up below to get the full valuation report) which potentially puts you $10,000 in front from day 1.

Future Development Potential

This is a good investment property “as-is” and can be rented out immediately, but there is also potential to add value and manufacture your own growth in the future because it’s on a large block that has the potential to be subdivided or developed (subject to Council approval of course).
