The second ‘silent’ Missive!  I don’t’ know about you, but I am impressed with my self-control!  Don’t know what the heck I am talking about?

Then go here.

Source: Residential Tenancies Authority, Rental Bonds data.  Notes:  As at September Qtr 2017. Townhouses include semi-detached houses.

And without wanting to sound too much like a broken record:

Three new reports

Just released are another three Price and Rent Reports covering:

  • Brisbane’s western suburbs (including Ipswich)
  • Brisbane’s eastern suburbs (including Redland)
  • Brisbane’s southern suburbs

So, if you want to know what’s going on in your neck of the woods or in your area/s of interest, visit our website to buy a report.

They are just $27.50 each or we will do a deal if you want all nine reports.

Last week we released:

  • Gold Coast
  • Logan City
  • Inner Brisbane

And next week we will finalise our set with:

  • Brisbane’s northern suburbs (including the old Pine Rivers Shire)
  • Moreton Bay
  • Sunshine Coast (including Noosa)

Go here to get your copy.

PS And on high-rotation has been the JD Souther back catalogue (he co-wrote some of the better Eagles tunes) and from the recently released pile: Altamira (movie soundtrack by Mark Knopfler), Robert Plant’s Carry Fire (a keeper for sure) and Johnny Cash’s The Sun Records Years (rare tracks and original versions).

PPS Last night’s Missive had an incorrect figure for Somerset new houses, whilst the official records state it is $190,000, it obviously is higher and we suggest it is in the low to mid $300,000 price range.  Thanks to those who pointed this out to us.  Revisit last night’s missive here.

Until next time,


Michael Matusik
