Nowadays the government is moving away from large clusters of public housing. Housing commission properties are normally scattered all over the place, and often new developments and estates would have a few dwellings purchased by the government for housing. A large portion of Inala public housing properties has been sold in early 2000s and are now privately owned. The remaining properties are mainly in the vicinity of Inala Plaza, with some individual public housing properties throughout the rest of Inala, Richlands, Darra and beyond.

As to potential regret, public housing doesn't necessarily mean bad tenants. Just as private ownership doesn't guarantee decent occupants. On our street, the nicest household happens to be the housing commission family, while the only house that is causing trouble with late night parties, loud music and loud cars is privately owned. Also bear in mind that public housing tenants who repeatedly cause problems get evicted, while you can do absolutely nothing if you have troubles with someone who owns their house. Simply have a good look at the neighbouring houses when inspecting the house you are looking to buy. If they appear neat, peaceful and quiet, who cares who owns them?

Housing commission neighbours are actually in some way better, because if you ever get troublesome housing commission neighbours, you can (and should) lodge a complaint with Queensland Housing Service. Your tax money pays their salaries and subsidises their tenants' rent, so this government service must take action, which can range from a warning to eviction, depending on the problems such neighbours cause. In contrast, it can be very difficult to deal with bad owner-occupier neighbours or someone who rents from a private owner landlord who doesn't care. Though, we don't have personal experience with either. In our case, our housing commission neighbours and house-owning neighbours are all nice people. Never had any issues with any of them.
