Great time to consider investing on Russell Island...Cheapest prices for 10 years..
Good blocks of land available for $25 to $35,000..
Build three bed/two bath home for about $145,000...would rent for about $230 to $250 / Wk

NBN fibre optic cable currently being laid all over russell island as we speak January 14th 2020. FTTN and FTTC super fast internet being installed by NBN contractors and Visionstream contractors. Did u also know that Russell island is currently having a SECOND mobile phone tower installed at 23 Moreton Outlook Dr, Russell Island ? It is also currently being installed with the foundations already poured. Should be finished and operational in the next few months.

Wow! I put a comment here in one of these topics about Councils being non-constitutional, and it disappeared in just a few minutes!!! Guess Homely is monitored by the big end of town, catering to the councils. How do I unregister please?!

I love russell island's potential as an investor. The island today is not the easiest place to live because of commuting issues, and the time it takes but certainly a great place to invest. Look at the Brisbane UBD, there are plans in red ink there that are indicative of the "proposed bridge" from the Mainland. Imagine!!!
