If you are considering purchasing an investment property in Brisbane then it’s wise to think beyond the accommodation you will provide. To secure long-term, satisfied tenants, the location of your property also plays a very important part.
If your property is located out of reach of convenient local services, retail and medical facilities then no matter how beautiful or well-furbished it is, it may be hard to keep tenants for long. Luckily, Brisbane’s Western Suburbs are well equipped, with a number of major shopping centres within easy reach. We’ve compiled a list of these to help you understand the facilities each suburb has to offer.
