  • Brisbane's prestige property market is described as having "come of age" this year
  • 38 property transactions have been recorded between $5M and $20M
  • Indooroopilly, Ascot and Kangaroo Point are recurring suburbs on the list

Brisbane’s prestige property market has been described as having “come of age” this year.

PS Property Advisory senior buyers’ agent, Scott McGeever, believes the sheer quantity of high-end transactions in the year is just one of the elements that make it a significant year for the sector.

“One of the most striking elements is that far more Brisbane locals are purchasing at this price level,” Mr McGeever said.

“High-end prestige is no longer just within the realm of interstate, expat and foreign national buyers in Brisbane.”

In 2019 Brisbane recorded 11 properties sold between $5 million and $20 million. In the same bracket that number doubled in 2020 according to Mr McGeever.

In 2021 to date Mr McGeever said a staggering 38 transactions have been recorded.

Increased transactions in the high-end price point are in line with exploding property prices across the state.

“Our Brisbane high-end prestige market has traditionally been ruled by buyers from across the border, as well as returning expats or foreign nationals.

“But locals are now increasingly meeting the market. They’ve grown accustomed to this new upper-level price point and have become a competitive force in ultra-luxe real estate.”
