The Verdict

The strategy I would recommend for this property is Renovation and/or Future Development this property is definitely one for the sub-dividers and duplex-developers among us.

Renovation or development potential

This property will not work if your strategy is focused on immediate positive cash flow.

However, with the right type of development strategy this little Ugly Duckling could be transformed into a positive cash flow super-star and produce multiple income streams.

High capital growth potential

The Moreton Bay region (covering Brisbane’s urban sprawl to the north) is the third largest local government area in Australia and one of the fastest growing areas in the country with the population set to exceed 500,000 by 2031.

The region offers affordable housing as well as good rail and roads links to Brisbane to the south, and northwards to the Sunshine Coast and beyond.


This property has been listed for $379,000. The estimated market value of the property is $384,000 (sign up below to get the full valuation report) which potentially puts you $5,000 in front from day 1.
