A recent announcement by the Australian Government confirms the construction of the direct, high performance freight corridor connecting Brisbane and SE QLD with Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth. By 2050 it’s expected that almost 12 million tonnes of freight will move between Melbourne and Brisbane each year – twice as much as now.
The inland rail will go via TOOWOOMBA (QLD) and PARKES (NSW) creating thousands of jobs during construction and continuing when fully operational. According to Matusik reports TOOWOOMBA is in an upturn phase of the property cycle and IPSWICH (between Brisbane CBD and Toowoomba) is in a recovery phase. It is expected that the housing types to be in highest demand over the next decade include houses that facilitate two or more rental incomes (DUAL OCCUPANCY); Townhouses; Duplex and Small Lot homes. In both areas residential property is relatively affordable.
Finance is an important element in any property purchase. Strategic and innovative packaging is available but recent studies show that there is too much reliance on “interest only” for long periods of time without due consideration to reduction of debt – particularly relating to the family home.
