Competition for real estate in Burpengary and other parts of Queensland could soon start to fall as official figures reveal a decline in migration across the state.
The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) found migration declined in four regions during the 12 months to June for a wide range of reasons.
Other areas of the country where this trend was experienced are the Northern Territory, ACT and Western Australia.
Denise Carlton from the ABS explained: "Queensland saw a fall of nearly 10,000 people or 24 per cent in its growth due to overseas migration."
Across Australia as a whole, the total population increased by 1.6 per cent to reach 23.5 million over the course of the year, with much of this rise a result of overseas migration.
Natural increase accounted for 152,200 people, while 212,700 individuals relocated to Australia from other countries.
No matter what type of property you have your eye on, having the experience of a real estate agent on hand can be invaluable.
Not only will they know the local market inside out, but can also work with whatever criteria you give them to make sure your real estate ambitions are met.
