The Verdict

This property represents what I call a “Triple-Whammy-Deal” – a property that represents high capital growth potential AND a discount below market value to create instant equity AND future development potential to add value and manufacture your own capital growth down the track.

High capital growth potential

Logan City is appealing from an investment point of view because it provides a key combination of affordability and excellent facilities. Research over time shows that Jobs + Infrastructure + Affordability + Rising Sales Volumes = Price Growth, and Logan City has all four of these factors well and truly covered.

Australia’s leading property researcher and Director of Hotspotting.com.au, Terry Ryder, reports that Logan City has more suburbs with rising sales activity than any other Local Government Area in Australia.


This property has been listed for $298,000. The estimated market value of the property is $339,000 (sign up below to get the full valuation report) which potentially puts you $41,000 in front from day 1.

Renovation or development potential

In our industry this type of property deal is affectionately known as a “chunk deal” – in other words, it is a good investment property “as-is” and can be rented out immediately. But it’s also situated on a large 809sqm block that has the potential to be subdivided or developed (subject to Council approval of course).
