Police conducting a welfare check in the quiet cul-de-sac found the body of the 59-year-old inside the home just before 3pm.
Paramedics were called but the man could not be revived.
The man is understood to have driven to the home in a white ute before a violent altercation broke out.
9News understands a knife was seized at the scene.
A neighbour said she was home throughout the afternoon but was not aware there had been a disturbance until police arrived.
A 29-year-old man who lives at the address was apprehended by police a short time later in Carina and has subsequently charged with murder.
He will appear in Brisbane Magistrates Court today.
