Mr Lonzar said the Woodridge market was attracting interest from interstate investors because of its good yields and buying prices.“It’s a consistent market. There are no big spikes, but it’s chugging along nicely with steady growth,” he said. “I think this area has a lot of potential and will be a good growth suburb.” According to CoreLogic, the median house price in Woodridge has increased 22.7 per cent in the past three years to sit at $300,000. The area has recorded a rental yield of 5.5 per cent.
