Like in many areas close to the centre of Brisbane, Bulimba’s vacancy rate is higher than landlords would like to see.

The latest figures from Real Estate Investar put Bulimba’s vacancy rate at 5.69%; however, there may be some good news for investors in the area, as it has fallen from 8.58% in the past 12 months.

While the high vacancy rate has likely helped push Bulimba’s rental yields down, with houses returning 3% yields and units 4%, those buying in the area may be taking a long-term view of the situation.

Located on the banks of the Brisbane River, Bulimba is a suburb tipped for significant revitalisation, with large areas of waterfront real estate that were previously used for industrial purposes currently being gentrified.

That work will enhance Bulimba’s current reputation as Brisbane’s leading shopping destination.

Working against Bulimba is the lack of public transport in the area.
