Brisbane is gaining a reputation as Australia's most affordable eastern capital with price growth potential, according to Herron Todd White.

Herron Todd White's October Month in Review found entry level and mid-range property within 10km of the CBD is going great guns and said buyers are 'sheep-dogging' over each other when an appropriately priced property hits the market - preferably second hand unit stock.

HTW said it’s price accessible, in locations that have a lot of rental demand and for a few grand, you can spruce up the space and add some value.

"Attached housing in the $330,000 to $550,000 range is doing well. Try Coorparoo and Greenslopes for units and townhouses at $330,000 to $400,000. That price point will land you an unrenovated, 2-bed, 1-bath abode in a 1980s complex. Townhouses at $450,000 to $550,000 are 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom for the record," HTW noted.

"For detached housing, the sweet spot is in the $600,000 to $800,000 bracket around the mid/ inner ring,

"You can get great quality homes at a fraction of the Sydney prices. Coorparoo, Camp Hill and Norman Park provide high set 3-bedroom, 1-bathroom dwelling in average condition on a 405 square metre to 607 square metre allotments at this price point. Our expectation is that this sector will continue to perform over the remainder of the year.

"Capital growth is tracking at approximately 5% per annum for the past 12 months and there is a good level of supply at present to match the demand, which is coming predominately from owner- occupiers."
