Arana Hills lies around 10km north-west of the Brisbane CBD, just past the Enoggera Military Camp, with good train and road links. Its median house price is in line with its neighbours. 

Amenities here are good, with a Coles supermarket, a handful of cafes and six schools all being within a 2km radius.

“It’s a real family suburb,” says Hot Property Specialists’ Liz Wilcox. “But it’s more affordable than areas closer to the city.”

“There are a lot of old housing commission style homes on bigger blocks of 607m2 as a minimum, so there’s potential in years to come and there’s definitely room for development and renovation.”

In order to target its largely family based tenant pool, Wilcox suggests getting hold of a three-bedroom, two-bathroom house if possible. She adds however, that due to the housing commission style of housing that dominates the area, one-bathroom properties are far more common.

Looking at the rental statistics, 27% of the Arana Hills population is accounted for by renters according to Census data, and SQM Research predicts this figure to rise to 37% in the next five years.
