"Great Place to Live in Kallangur"

Great Place to Live. We bought a house here last year.
My kids are going to Our Lady of the Way in Petrie. The school is great and my family liked very much living in this area.
We never had any problems close to our house.
It is very close to Petrie express station, which is a great advantage and only 30 minutes to CBD from the express train.

"Best value suburb I have lived in."

Been in Kallangur for about 12 months. We absolutely love it. We live in a newer house in a bushy area. Plenty of parks and space. Could do with a few more places to eat out. Fantastic value for money to buy or ren . With the train line being built it will become so much more accessible to get to the city for next to nothing.

"Affordable, but get the right spot"

I grew up in Kallangur, and had a wonderful childhood. My husband and I are thinking of buying in the area because it is so affordable. However, there are certain areas to avoid, particularly the closer you get to the main strip on Anzac Avenue. There can be some pretty "wild" people living around there (some, but definitely not all!). It is close to everything - Redcliffe beaches, 40 mins to the Sunshine Coast, 45 mins to the city, shopping at North Lakes etc. The only problem is the lack of a good high school (unless you live closer to North Lakes) and the amount of townhouses going up in the area. Why they would want to put high density living in an area with no train station is beyond me. But overall, I enjoyed growing up in this suburb, and hope to buy my first home there fairly soon.

Jason Smith Over the last five years I have enjoyed living and working in Kallangur. I own two local businesses and also sell and manage a lot of property within the area. My two sons go to child care within the suburb and I have found ABC in Kallangur great to deal with. My sons will be going to North Lakes when they are older enough as the education system is a little more advanced and offer more than the local Kallangur public schools. If you ever need any real estate advice please feel free to call me any time:

"Has become very over-crowded!! VERY quickly...!!"

I grew up in Kallangur and spent the first 30 years of my life there, it used to be a beautiful place to call home almost perfect, but as time has past and money hungry developers have gotten into the picture it is now an over-crowded, noisy, bypass to Mango Hill / North Lakes which they have also distroyed.. Many of the properties in the original part of Kallangur are ex-Housing Commission properties. I miss the old Kallangur would never live there again now.. am glad I still have some photo's of our beautiful it used to be before they ruined it. Many wildlife lost their homes while the developers cleared the land and slapped up other buildings.

"Kallangur - home is where the heart is"

Kallangur is surrounded by the beautiful mountains of samford, close to the beach of redcliffe and bribie island. Its a suburb with every thing at your fingertips. Trains, buses, shopping centres, rural surrounds, the North Pine dam, pretty Petrie and a good mix of people. It has a diverse range of demographics, has a Westfield Shopping Centre and is an area of growth. It also has lots of natural habitat for wildlife - which should be protected, so if you move here and love this aspect, stand up and speak for it. It is not far from the city in non peak hour traffic in the car, but if you have to commute, use the train services. It is far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the chaotic city life to give you that sense of isolation from it all when you get home of an evening.
I said I would never live on the northside, however, I will definitely shed a tear when I sell my little piece of peace. :)

hawaii99
hawaii99 Hi there i was wondering if anyone can elaberate more on schools in the area please. High schools and primary schools do you know if there are semi private schools in the area?. Or does anyone know where Bolte Cresent is and if you know if that is a good area to be in? Thank you

KM32 Hi! I'm not sure where Bolte Cres is, I'm sorry, but I may be able to help with schools. My siblings and I went to Undurba State School, which is just next door in Murrumba Downs. We absolutely loved it. My nephew goes there now, and it has such a lovely school culture, even though it is getting quite big. I don't know too much about Kallangur State School, except I have heard it is a little rough. You also have a choice of both state and private schools at North Lakes now, which are all brand new and have excellent facilites, and there is a private Lutheran school (name escapes me, sorry!) that goes from Prep to 12, also in Murrumba Downs and I've heard lovely things about that too! Hope this helps in some way.

Jason Smith Hi Hawaii99, Bolte Street is off Marsden Rd Kallangur. I currently manage a lot of properties within that area and in that street. The semi private schools you will have to look towards North Lakes and the new school in Murrumba Downs. I live locally myself and have two sons that are still in the child care system and will be attending North Lakes next year. If you need any more advice or help please feel free to give me a call.

Jason Smith Hi Dash, Good Fellows Rd has lot of Town Houses and rentals in this street. It is also very busy at the moment with the train line coming through. I manage close to 600 properties in the area and none of my tenants or clients cause me any problems. Overall it is a middle class working area

DionS
DionS Hi Jason, I just bought a lovely townhouse on Brickworks street. Given your real estate experience do you think the value of said townhouse and Kallangur overall would increase once the train station is operational? Is it a good area to invest in? It seems to get a lot of bad reviews from people

Jason Smith
Jason Smith Hi Dion, Being An Elite Performer with over 550 sales in the local area within the last 4.5 years, being a local investor myself and currently managing over 480 properties today, I cannot see any growth within the Town House Market over the next 4 years as there is just an over supply. For further information please feel free to email me at [email protected] or 0400 389 116 Thanks Jason Smith Ray White Murrumba Downs-Kallangur

TraceyS2 Hi Jason, I'm looking at buying an investment property around the Kallangur, murrumba downs, north lakes area! Could you tell me if there is a high need for people to rent houses in this area and with your experience does each rental have multiple applications put in?
Feb 10, 2016
Jason Smith
Jason Smith Hi Tracy, I would have to say 4 bedrooms, 2 bedrooms and a double lock up garage are the best investments to buy if you are looking for multiple applications. I would stay away from buys streets and take into consideration if the property you buy has ceiling fans, air conditioning, dish washer, side access, pool or a shed. My vacancy rates at the moment are 2.2% and I manage over 500 properties in the Moreton Bay Region. Should you wish to talk with me in person about your next purchase I am best on 0400 389 116 or [email protected] Thanks Jason Smith Ray White Murrumba Downs
