Market Square Makeover

Market Square is about to undergo a major renovation, with a massive $40 million expansion and rejuvenation project just recently receiving council approval. Taking place in three stages, and predicted to provide an additional 6,785sqm of commercial space, this development is expected to have a major impact on the local market.

    What This Means

While capital growth may fall during a construction period, it rises again immediately following completion. For example, the suburbs of Carindale, Upper Mt Gravatt and Indooroopilly all had major shopping centres undergo massive rejuvenations.

Each saw capital growth drop before reaching new highs once construction finished.

Historic Low Interest Rates

The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) has recently cut interest rates to historic new lows. Combined with the predicted rise in capital growth from the Market Square redevelopment, this means in the coming months and years that buying Sunnybank could become a highly attractive option.

   Economic Impact

Glenn Stevens, Governor of the Royal Bank of Australia, said developments in the housing market (along with other economic factors), meant these cuts could also offer more financial stability for Australia.

"At present, the potential risks of lower interest rates in this area are less than they were a year ago," said Mr Stevens.
