Infrastructure Snapshot


  • McConaghy Street South Precinct The McConaghy Street South Precinct will contain medium density mixed use development of up to five storeys. The precinct’s location directly opposite the Mitchelton railway station and on a key pedestrian thoroughfare linking the Brookside Shopping Centre and Blackwood Street supports a small component of commercial or retail activities which activates the ground floor frontage to McConaghy Street.


The Details
About The Property
This property presented very well. McConaghy Street is a nice quiet street within walking distance to the main shops and Mitchelton train station. Whilst a little narrow, it was definitely deep enough to create a sense of space. The rear covered patio and yard is the selling point of this property. It was recently completed for the sale and the workmanship is of a high standard. The rear yard and garden is well maintained and provides simple maintenance for any tenant. The front yard / entrance is more dense in terms of trees, plants and landscaping and would most likely require quarterly maintenance to keep it looking nice.
The laundry to the rear of the house is large and looks out onto the deck/patio area. There would be an opportunity to combine this space with the bathroom and create a larger dining area leading out onto the patio. This however, is a minor consideration and would not affect the resale or prospect of attracting tenants.
This house is best suited for a small family with plenty of living space and room for the kids to play in the backyard. Each bedroom has a robe and the main at the front of the house has a walk-in and ensuite. The kitchen is basic, but has everything that you would need in an investment property.

Your Brief Specifics
• 1.5km from the train station - This property is 1km from Mitchelton train station and 1.3km to              Oxford Park train station.
• Land size 400sqm block / 120sqm house - The land size of this property is 627m2 and the house is      110m2 + 80m2 (covered patio). 
• 10% capital growth / 5% rental yield - We note that the last three years Mitchelton has recorded            17.36% capital growth. There is no way to guarantee that the property you buy will increase in              value, but in order to increase your chances, we have carried out detailed research on the property    and Mitchelton in general. We estimate that the rental yield will be below your ideal 5%. 
Our Thoughts
We believe the agents have priced this property accurately. The comps we have done on this property see's our valuation at $660,000, so they're not too far off. For us, this ticks all the boxes and provides a very sound and safe investment for you in a great growth suburb. We would recommend making an offer at $640,000 with a 56 day settlement term (8 weeks) to give us enough time to find the right tenant. This offer would be subject to pest and building reports also. Noting our target purchase price of $660,000, we would be happy to advise that this would be a fair price to settle on if the seller wishes to negotiate up from $640,000.
