There is an old saying – “you make money when you buy, not when you sell”.

If you are looking for long term returns, the location you buy your property in, is ultimately the key to your property investment success. 

This month, we take a closer look at:

Carina is primarily residential, and has 7 parks that cover nearly 18% of the suburb's total area. The Brisbane City Council has a bus depot within Carina on Creek Road. 


LOCATION: Carina is located 7 km South East of the Brisbane CBD.
