4032 has proven itself to be an area in North Brisbane that offers incredible growth opportunities to singles, couples, families and retirees alike. With multiple up-and-coming unit developments, post-war homes, architectural masterpieces and everything in between, buying property in the Chermside area has never been more attractive.
Who is buying properties in 4032?
This is a growth area that is seeing more and more investment take place. The close proximity to Chermside Shopping Centre, as well as a plethora of excellent schooling options, means that this is a veritable mecca for families looking to settle down in an area that can cater for all of their varied needs.
Couples and upwardly mobile professional singles are entranced by the wide variety of apartment and townhouse options – some established and some of which are still being crafted. Green parklands, walking tracks, access to arterial roads and a number of quirky ‘corner’ stores still in existence mean that this area is attractive to many and for many different reasons. This is an area that is in high demand.
International buyers are also attracted to this area in terms of both investment opportunities and the chance to settle in Australia. This is evidenced by the eclectic ethic makeup of the area.

Buying Property in Chermside
Chermside is the beating heart of this area with access to the largest shopping centre in Brisbane, other shopping options and a number of excellent schools (and an actual waterpark!) close by.
The real estate market in Chermside is somewhat competitive. The median property price is $585, 000 but the visits per property are significantly lower than the Queensland area. This creates an excellent purchasing atmosphere for prospective owners who are spoilt for choice when it comes to finding their forever home.
Who is moving to Chermside?
This is an area that is accessible to first home buyers but also littered with established and older families. Here are a number of elderly singles here as well who are ‘lifelong’ residents of 4032. This aging population means there are often properties coming up for sale that have been off the market for a long time which creates an opportunity for those who wish to gain a foothold in the area.
Chermside’s collection of high set timber Queenslanders, as well as newer brick properties, means that there are plenty of opportunities for rot and mould to set in – as well as unwanted pests! These issues should be high on the checklist for any prospective buyer. You must ensure you undertake a pre-purchase property inspection so you’re aware of what you’re getting into.
