A suburb of Brisbane, Mansfield is located only 14km from Brisbane’s central business district. The market has made steady incline, with house values tracking an average annual growth rate of 4.4%, and unit values 4.3%.

Head of research at DSRdata.com.au and LocationScore, Jeremy Sheppard, says vacancy rates are on a good path. “They have tightened from 2% to a tad above 1% over the last couple of years,” he says.

“The percentage of stock on market peaked at over 1% in late 2018. But it fell sharply over the middle of 2019 to sit at around 0.5%.”

The breadth of schools in the immediate and surrounding region, as well as pockets of nature have made it popular for families.

Director of Metropole Property Strategists, Michael Yardney, says good infrastructure has also contributed towards the suburb becoming one of the most sought-after in south eastern Brisbane.

“[Mansfield] will also benefit greatly from the commercial and retail expansion of Mt Gravatt, but tucked away in a more family friendly environment,” Yardney says.

Unit values come in at the median price of $425k coupled with a strong rental yield of 4%. Investors can potentially take away a median weekly rental income of $490 for houses and $330 for units.
