Buying in the right school catchment could be the best and easiest investment you’ve ever made!

House prices are dictated by a range of factors, but one that is often overlooked is the school catchment in which your property lies. With back to school just around the corner, real estate agents operating in Brisbane’s best school catchments have been inundated with family’s searching on the primary criteria of public school catchments. With high levels of demand for these properties, buyers are offering up to 10% above market value just to secure a spot at one of Brisbane’s prestigious public schools. The following list outlines the top ten primary and high schools in Brisbane based on their performance in 2018.

Primary Schools:

  1. Rainworth State School
  2. MacGregor State School
  3. Ashgrove State School
  4. Ironside State School
  5. Wishart State School
  6. Indooroopilly State School
  7. Sunnybank State School
  8. Chapel Hill State School
  9. Graceville State School
  10. Robertson State School

High Schools:

  1. Brisbane State High School
  2. Mansfield State High School
  3. Indooroopilly State High School
  4. Cavendish Road State School
  5. Mount Gravatt State High School
  6. Kelvin Grove State College
  7. The Gap State High School
  8. Kenmore State High School
  9. Brisbane School of Distance Education
  10. Stretton State College

Rainworth (located in Bardon) and Ashgrove take out two of the top three Primary schools and it has certainly showed in the number of inquiries. Parents of school-aged children are starting to shift their values, investing in the family home by buying into areas zoned for some of the city’s best public schools, rather than paying the same in private school fees.

Not only do buyers in Bardon, Ashgrove and The Gap gain comfort from being located in the blue chip rim of Brisbane, but they also are assured that their purchase will be made safer through the quality of schools around them.
