Greenslopes lies around 5km south of the Brisbane CBD and encompasses the Greenslopes Mall and Greenslopes Private Hospital. Road access to the city is good, via the Pacific Motorway, but the nearest train station is a couple of kilometres away at Fairfield.

Hot Property Specialists’ Liz Wilcox adds however that the bus options here are just as good, if not better, than nearby Holland Park’s thanks to Logan Road and the express busway.

Units here have an affordable median price tag and decent yields that are expected to rise in line with Brisbane’s tightening rental market.

Wilcox suggests that the area’s unit market will attract young professionals and healthcare workers, and with this in mind she recommends targeting the streets close to the hospital (just to the west of Logan Road) and the shopping centre (just to the east of Logan Road).

When it comes to what to buy, she suggests going for a modern or revamped unit to cater for tenant expectations and receive the best yields, as the old six-packs have “had their day.”
