The most expensive Brisbane train lines to buy a house in

The Domain Group has crunched the numbers on the average median house price along each train route, following the release of its latest State of the Market report earlier this week. According to Domain Group’s latest data, Doomben is the most expensive Brisbane train line to buy a house on.

This finding isn’t surprising as Brisbane’s priciest suburbs can be found along this relatively short train line. Doomben’s lowest median was Albion, at $751,500, while its highest median was Ascot, at $1.4m. Overall, the train line’s average price came in at $949,583, which is considerably higher than the second most expensive train line: Shorncliffe-Wynnum ($529,750).  

Doomben’s lowest median was Albion, at $751,500, while its highest median was Ascot, at $1.4m. Overall, the train line’s average price came in at $949,583, which is considerably higher than the second most expensive train line: Shorncliffe-Wynnum ($529,750).  

The next three most expensive train lines are Ferny Grove-Beenleigh ($507,143), Redcliffe-Springfield ($428,195), and Caboolture-Ipswich ($371,250).

Andrew Wilson, chief economist at the Domain Group, said it was not surprising that Doomben had the highest average median thus far, adding that the success of suburbs like Hendra and Ascot had very little impact on the value of Doomben.  

“They’re higher-priced areas, we know that. There are other factors pushing up the prices in those suburbs anyway,” he said.

The lowest-priced train line was Caboolture-Ipswich. This was despite the considerable number of medians above $1m along the line.

The line to keep an eye on is Redcliffe-Springfield, which is relatively new and has suburbs that show strong signs of growth, the Domain Group said.
