Brisbane is a large modern city in Queensland and is home to 2 million Australians spread across a large number of suburbs. If you are looking to relocate to the state’s capital or secure your long term presence in the area by building a new home on your own block of land, let’s take a look at the up and coming hot suburbs that will provide you both a fabulous lifestyle and all of the creature comforts you desire.
Paddington, where the affluent locals love to live
The inner city suburb of Paddington is one of Brisbane’s oldest areas and one that has established itself as a great place to reside. It’s home to many art galleries and antique shops, great cafes and shopping strips and only 2 kms west of the city centre.
The area is home to the trendy and stylish, those to love the clean and green outdoors and is certainly a prestige location to set up home. The professional and young families who reside in Paddington love the amenities and take a break from the hustle and bustle of life by enjoying the variety of great walking and bike paths along Enoggera creek and hills in and around the area.
Many homes in this suburb have enjoyed a makeover more recently, with many homeowners choosing to renovate or re-building on their own land and as a result, the area has taken on an atmosphere all of its own. It’s a great suburb to live in if your finances allow it, and building a new home to match your tastes is easy with Dixon Homes.
First home owners love what Logan has to offer

Identifying affordable suburbs that have potential growth suitable for those buying their first property as well as investors can often be difficult, especially when an area, such as Brisbane, offers such a wide variety of suburbs that tick all the right boxes.
One of the most popular areas to consider is Logan. Situated in between Brisbane and the Gold Coast, this suburb, home to 300,000 people, will allow first home buyers to put their $15,000 grant to good use then when building a new home on a fabulously sized block of land.
The area is perfect for young families; in fact 50% of the residents are 30 years old, making the region a vibrant suburb full of energy, with a great community feel. With great shopping, opportunities to enjoy fishing and bike riding and plenty of restaurants and cafes to suit all tastes, this is one suburb in Queensland well worth a second look. Purchasing property in and amongst the bushland areas, as an option, will give homeowners the chance to build a new home that can take advantage of the environment, the natural surrounds and waterfront parks along the Logan River.
