Qld Land Values Update

The Queensland Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy has just released the Valuer-General’s 2020 Property Market Movement Report. The purpose of the investigation and report is to assess land values, and is how City Council’s and Land Tax charges are calculated.

Here is a link to the whole report on the Queensland Government’s website:


Below is the excerpt relating to residential property in Brisbane:

The residential market is the most significant land use with approximately 305,000 valuations in the suburbs of Brisbane. The residential median land value increased slightly from $455,000 to $460,000. The median values of 115 suburbs did not change. There were minor increases to several inner northern suburbs including Kalinga and Wooloowin. A number of Brisbane’s outer southern suburbs reflected minor to moderate increases due to their affordability and increased competition. The new median value for Durack is $280,000. There were seven suburbs that showed slight to minor decreases. The Moreton Island townships of Bulwar, Cowan Cowan and Kooringal showed minor decreases. The land values of the low to medium density multi-unit residential markets across Brisbane have remained static. The land values of high-density sites, located in the City fringe have seen minor decreases as demand for the larger redevelopment sites has softened due to the existing supply of units. The total land value for rural residential land has increased slightly. The median land value remains at $660,000.

You know how much your rent is, you can fix your home loan repayments, Why not get a fixed price on property management?

Everyone loves certainty.

We buy property and believe with certainty that it is going to go up in value, we believe with certainty that our property will be attractive to tenants and will be rented at the rate that we want.

Having constants in our life and in our property investment strategy is very important.

At Managed Property, we often get questions from other agents, investors, clients – how come your management fees are fixed?

The simple reason – we know what our costs are, we know how much we need to spend to provide our service, we know the margin we need to make to ensure a sustainable successful business so we can with certainty put a price on our product.

Our product is a fixed service – it should have a fixed price.

If you rent goes up or down, you still expect the same amount of inspections, email and management from your property manager!

Don’t you?

You would not (and should not) put up with a manager saying, ‘due to the fact we get a % of your rent and your rent is going down, I am not going to do your next general inspection’.

Having a fixed cost allows you to plan ahead, work out what your yield is and make decisions about your property investment with facts.

Fixing how much each week you pay your manager to look after your property is a good way to start.

Window lock legislation commenced

Window Lock Legislation Commenced

A recent string of accidents involving children falling from windows in apartment blocks has led to changes in the National Construction Code.

Under the building code changes, as of 1 May 2013 all new apartment blocks in Australia will be required to have window locks fitted, preventing windows from opening more than 12.5cm. Under s30 of the Building Act 1975 (Qld), all new buildings, in order to be certified, must comply with the Building Code of Australia.
