Biding your time can be a wise move as a property investor, as it gives you time to weigh up the market and what opportunities you should make the most of.
If you've been waiting for property values to moderate in Brisbane and its outlying areas then now could be the time to strike, according to the November CoreLogic RP Data Home Value Index.
Although the value of real estate in Elimbah and other regions is still growing, it is doing so at a slower pace, therefore making properties more affordable for anyone yet to enter the market.
Brisbane's values were up 0.4 per cent last month, which higher than the combined capital average where a 0.3 per cent fall was registered.
"Although combined capital city home values increased by a healthy 8.5 per cent over the 12 months to November 2014, the annual growth rate is now at its lowest level in the year," noted CoreLogic RP Data research analyst Cameron Kusher.
Yearly home value growth peaked at 11.5 per cent during the year to April and has moderated ever since.
Brisbane was one of just three capitals to have witnessed a rise in values during the three months to November, while all others experienced declines.
