Why do people buy in Acacia Ridge?
Acacia Ridge is growing in popularity for first home purchasers and also property investors. Located at just 15km south of the Brisbane GPO, there is above state average demand for homes.
Since the 1960s, Acacia Ridge has been well known as an industrial district. Both Holden and Toyota have manufactured vehicles in the area and other national businesses have had distribution depots located in Acacia Ridge. With the closure of much local manufacturing and heavy industry, interest in Acacia Ridge property has steadily increased.
Census data shows a similar percentage of young families, established families and independent youth living in Acacia Ridge. Convenience to the city and ready access to services is a huge drawcard for the suburb and nearby areas such as Durak, Archerfield and Sunnybank.
You’ll find a variety of housing styles lining the streets in this suburb. There are traditional post war chamferboard homes and older style 6-pack unit blocks now being joined by newly built town houses and contemporary builds. A building inspector will look for signs of pests or subsidence in your older Acacia Ridge home. For new builds, an experienced inspector is key to identifying any structures outside the Australian codes and standards.
As industry moves further out of town, residential opportunities are arising and providing great value for money and potential growth. In February 2016, the average sale price of a 4-bedroom home in Acacia Ridge remains under $420,000 and, as would be expected, demand is high. Renting a similar property in the area costs, on average, $378 per week.
