Brisbane has cemented itself as the nation’s lifestyle capital, with the city home to seven of the top 10 most liveable suburbs in Australia.
The 7 suburbs were South Brisbane, Dutton Park, Spring Hill, Kangaroo Point, Corinda, Indooroopilly and Fortitude Valley.
The suburbs were ranked based on ease of access to schools, parks, beaches and the CBD, by car or public transport and were compiled by realestate.com.au using its own online trends and Australian Bureau of Statistics data.
The number one suburb to invest in for rental performance is Chigwell in Tasmania, according to CoreLogic’s latest Top Rental Performers report.
Houses in Chigwell have a rental yield of 7.4% and a median value of $226,065, which also makes it one of the most affordable suburbs.
