The Verdict

High capital growth potential, a discount below market value, and future development potential. These three ticks can’t be ignored.


This property has been listed for $279,000 by a motivated Vendor. The estimated market value of the property is $315,000 (sign up below to get the full valuation report) which potentially puts you $36,000 in front from day 1.

High capital growth potential

Ipswich City has an estimated population of 188,000, which is projected to rise to 435,000 by 2031. It ranks in the top six Queensland Local Government Areas for population growth.

The Ipswich corridor is well-known as a growth region, and the market growth across the Greater Brisbane area is starting to be felt in Ipswich City, boosted by good amenities and affordability in this area.

There remain many suburbs that are attractively affordable for first-home buyers and investors on a budget.

Future renovation or development potential

This is a good investment property as is, and can be rented out immediately. But it also provides potential to add value in the future because it is situated on a large block (809sqm) that has the potential to be subdivided or developed later on.
