Brisbane real estate: ‘Rightsizers’ want apartments as big as houses

Miles and family

Apartments the size of houses are becoming the new Great Australian Dream for ‘rightsizers’—entrepreneurs, young families, and active retirees seeking low-maintenance properties with top-tier amenities. By 2022, Brisbane is expected to have the most three-bedroom apartments in Australia. These buyers prefer luxury apartments with high security, a concierge, reputable developers, single-level living, good views, and access to transport. Suburbs like Newstead, Teneriffe, and the CBD are popular among this group, which includes not only retirees but also younger generations.
