Picked to be a hot commodity in a few years, Keperra is one of Brisbane’s up and coming suburbsFull summary Picked to be a hot commodity in a few years, Keperra is one of Brisbane’s up and coming suburbs.

With pockets of housing commission dotted across the suburb, Keperra was given a bad rap in the past.

However, change is most definitely in the air with affordable housing being a significant driver for interest in the area.

The majority of houses are in great condition and many present the perfect opportunity for renovation.

Located just 9km from Brisbane’s CBD, Keperra offers a wide range of transport options including two train stations and several bus routes.

Four shopping centres as well as a championship golf course, parks, bush land and a hospital are making this suburb popular with young couples and families.

With a vacancy rate of 1.18%, demand is clearly on the rise. Keperra is also a lot less expensive than neighbouring Mitchelton ($560,000) and Enoggera ($583,000) in terms of median house prices.Close
