The Logan area is worth keeping an eye on as an affordable alternative to Brisbane’s inner ring suburbs that still provides excellent transport into the city.

The Loganlea SLA has also seen good population growth in recent years (9.5% between 2005 and 2009 according to ABS statistics) and this increased demand for property – combined with the size of land blocks in the area – has
created subdivision opportunities.

While you may not necessarily be looking to develop yourself, you may want to target house and land blocks that have subdivision potential in order to capitalise on the increasing demand for such properties amid growing demand for higher density living.

In terms of the area’s rental market, the suburb’s residential vacancy rate is at a healthy 2.29%, with Logan Hospital, Logan campus of Griffith University and Metropolitan South Institute of TAFE all providing a healthy tenant base.

Rental yield is very attractive at 6% thanks to its affordable median price of $320,000.
