Brisbane is Australia’s third largest city by population, and the capital of the state of Queensland. Brisbane is situated at the heart of South East Queensland, which is Australia’s fastest growing metropolitan region. There are more than 2.4 million residents in the greater Brisbane area. Prior to European settlement in 1824, the area around Brisbane was inhabited by a number of Aboriginal tribes, namely the Turrbal and Jagera people.

Brisbane is a growing city, with exciting real estate opportunities. If you are looking to buy, rent or sell a property in Brisbane, the following information will provide you with an overview of Brisbane’s history.
The establishment of Brisbane is an important part of Australia’s post-settlement history. Brisbane is named after Sir Thomas Brisbane, a noted astronomer and from 1821 to 1825 the Governor of New South Wales, which at the time included the lands of what is now known as Queensland. During Brisbane’s time as Governor, an expedition led by John Oxley sailed north from modern-day Sydney to identify a suitable site for a penal colony. Oxley first landed at Redcliffe, north east of the current Brisbane CBD, and then sailed up the river now known as the Brisbane River in search of a suitable water supply. A permanent colony was eventually established at North Quay, and the foundations for the city of Brisbane were laid.
Free settlers were allowed in Brisbane sometime around the late 1830s to early 1840s. Brisbane became the economic driver for the newly established colony of Queensland when it separated from New South Wales in 1859. Until the federation of the colonies in 1901, forming the country of Australia, many considered Brisbane to be a frontier settlement; a place where enterprising butchers, tradespeople and, with the discovery of the fertile Darling Downs, cattlemen and drovers, could carve out their own success away from the established southern settlements. During the latter part of the twentieth century, Brisbane was also abuzz with gold prospectors, buoyed by discovery of gold in the colonies of New South Wales and Victoria.
As settlers moved north in Queensland, Brisbane became an increasingly important service hub. Queensland’s railways were integral to the state’s economy, transporting goods from cattle to gold, and eventually other natural resources, to port, and Brisbane required skilled engineers and workers to support this infrastructure.
Brisbane has a rich military history, playing a central role during World War II as a headquarters for the US Army in the Pacific. Following the war, Brisbane began a process of urban transformation, as many of the established, ‘country’ localities of Brisbane were transformed into modern suburbs.
This process of suburbanisation was aided by significant road infrastructure projects during the 1960s, 70s and 80s, including the construction of freeways linking the CBD to the rapidly expanding suburbs.
Two events during the 1980s changed the face of Brisbane forever, further aiding the transformation of Brisbane from a country town to an energetic, vibrant metropolis. In 1982 Brisbane hosted the Commonwealth Games, accompanied by the construction of impressive new sporting infrastructure, primarily in Brisbane’s southern suburbs. The second event, the 1988 World Expo hosted by Brisbane, saw the construction of major community and cultural infrastructure in South Brisbane. The legacy of these two events continues to influence Brisbane’s modern cultural and sporting life, and helped forge its current identity.

1. Declutter If there is a cupboard in the house, there is a good chance the buyer will open it. It’s now time to throw the box that your kettle came in 5 years ago that’s sitting on top of the fridge. The more spacious you make the house, the bigger it will look and the better it will be! 2. Patch & paint Remember when you knocked the wall or put a little hole in the wall while moving furniture, it’s now time to patch and paint it. 3. Neutral colours The red feature wall you painted ten years ago that is now out of style – refresh the space and repaint with neutral colours. 4. Carpets Steam clean carpets or replace carpets to give the property a fresh new look. 5. Unfortunately this is a big one and a bad one….Deep clean Get into the oven, behind the TV, the cupboards, skirting boards – everything. Make time and pick a room while you are at home and get to work. 6. Maintenance & repairs There is nothing worse than the little marks you made, you want to make it look like the house has been well-looked after. …
This is a very interesting subject at the moment with a lot of concepts and thoughts from the industry saying that now is a terrible time to sell. It is hard to say because most of the sales data we see from the backend of Price Finder and from online is from 2-3 months ago. The only information I can talk about right now is our most recent sale, 13/25 Dudley Street, Highgate Hill. We listed this Highgate Hill property for sale less than 3 weeks ago with the following marketing campaign: Professional photos and script; Highlighted property listing on Realestate.com.au; and Matterport 3D Tour. We did not put a “For Sale” sign outside the property because we knew there would be less people travelling around the area. Due to the current restrictions and COVID-19 situation, we had to do viewings of the property by private inspection only. Within the first week we had 4 offers. We had 4 buyers who inspected the property in person and 2 buyers viewing the property virtually as they were from interstate. We listed the property at $410,000 which was the price we appraised a few months ago. We ended up achieving a sales …
