Queensland’s New Million-Dollar Hotspot

Recent research has revealed that Teneriffe is Queensland’s new number one destination for million-dollar houses, stealing the crown from New Farm, which took the top spot in 2014.

 Teneriffe is Queensland’s new number one destination

The highest new entrant in the state’s $1 million+ suburb list is Ransome, with a 38 per cent increase in million-dollar houses from 2014 to 2015 resulting in a sixth-place position.

The suburb with the biggest increase in its million-dollar status within the Top 10 was Hawthorne, which documented a 43 per cent increase during the same period.

Waterline Crescent in Bulimba retains its number one position as QLD’s most property-rich street, with four other streets from last year’s Top 10 making a second appearance.

Five new streets made up the remaining places including three streets from New Farm alone.

Queensland has seen the biggest increase in properties reaching a $1 million price tag compared to other states.

While the greater Brisbane area as a whole has not seen strong performance in the last quarter, the inner suburbs of Brisbane and Gold Coast suburbs present increased value opportunities.

While the Top 10 suburb list offered up similar suburbs from last year, the most important thing to note is the increase in properties reaching the million-dollar milestone.

This year, more than half of all suburbs in the Top 10 are worth over $1 million, which wasn’t the case in 2014.
