Mansfield State High Catchment – Your Home’s Hottest Selling Point?
Mansfield State High School is a public high school on Brisbane’s southside.
The school is known across Brisbane for excellence in a number of key subjects, including Maths and English. In fact, it’s rated #2 on the Better Education (www.bettereducation.com.au) website’s list of Queensland’s best public high schools.
All of which means that if your home is located in the Mansfield State High catchment area, you have a fantastic selling point that’s worth leveraging.
Why leverage your catchment location?
Thanks to its stellar reputation, Mansfield State High School is very popular among families with high school aged children.
However, because the school is nearing its enrolment capacity, it’s currently under a “School Enrolment Management Plan”. This means that priority is given to enrolments from children living within the catchment area. Out-of-catchment enrolments are heavily restricted.
In other words, parents who want to send their children to Mansfield State High need to live in the school’s catchment area.
Unsurprisingly, this has created more demand for properties in the catchment area than properties in surrounding suburbs. This higher demand often translates into higher prices and faster selling times for Mansfield State High catchment properties – especially if you have an agent who specialises in selling properties in the catchment.
All you need to do is make sure your home is located within the Mansfield State High catchment in the first place.
It’s well-known that Wishart and Mansfield are located within the Mansfield State High catchment. But what you may not realise is that all of Mackenzie, plus parts of Upper Mount Gravatt, Mount Gravatt East, Carindale, Rochedale and more are also in the catchment area.

Selling with a catchment specialist
Selling your home through a real estate agent who specialises in your catchment area can bring a number of benefits.
To begin with, agents who specialise in selling a school catchment area often work closely with buyers interested in that area. This means they have a ready list of buyers who might be interested in your home before it even goes to market. There really isn’t a better outcome than that!
With their familiarity with the property market in your area, a specialist can easily give you an accurate price appraisal for your property.
It’s also worth noting that many buyers interested in the Mansfield catchment don’t realise it encompasses suburbs outside Wishart and Mansfield. This is a problem if your property is in another catchment suburb, as these buyers won’t search online in your area. However, a catchment area specialist can draw buyers’ attention to your property so it gets the attention it deserves.
And as an added bonus, if you’re looking for a specialist real estate agent in the Mansfield State High catchment, you’re already in the right place!
If your home is located in the Mansfield State High catchment, have you considered getting an updated appraisal on your home’s value?
