You had me stumped with East Brisbane for a while.... until I remembered the multi-million dollar houses on the river , and I am curious about your inclusion of Woolloongabba?
I'd add Bulimba and Balmoral to the list.
Many of the suburbs already named hold pockets of "blue chip" but still have some fairly ordinary housing as well, though I suppose even the "ordinary" houses hold their value due to proximity to the more expensive houses close by.
Great post. Can I buy a respectable 3 bedroom house for $550k in any of these blue chip areas in a "blue chip" street if that makes sense and what would my expected rental be? If not, what "2nd tier" blue chip suburbs should I be looking at at this price range? Thanks.
