Warwick - Southern Downs Queensland
The Southern Downs has been the focus of significant commercial and government investment in recent years, fanning opportunities for investment.
Warwick, a charming agricultural enclave, has historic buildings mingled with cattle saleyards and modern housing estates - and is proving to be a magnet for investors and tree-changers from the city.
In recent years extensive development in the resources and transport sectors on the Darling Downs has driven up house prices in Toowoomba, giving reasons for home-buyers to seek a rural lifestyle elsewhere.
Warwick, about 80km south of Toowoomba, is soaking up any population overflow thanks to its cheaper house prices.
With a median house price of $280,000 and rental yields typically around 5%, Warwick presents as a location worth considering by investors seeking affordability, good cash-flow and prospects for growth.
