In a recent study published on realestate.com.au, it was revealed that two South Australian suburbs top the list of the top ten desirable suburbs in Australia for which people search when buying a home. These were the leafy, city-adjacent suburbs of Parkside and Unley.
Is it surprising that two Adelaide suburbs topped a national list? Perhaps not when you consider the attractiveness to many people of living in South Australia. Our lifestyle, weather, ease of getting around and nestled position between beach and hills is compelling.
So when it comes to the top ten suburbs in South Australia that receive the highest number of searches from potential buyers, which suburbs made the list?
3. Semaphore Park
6. St Peters
10. Somerton Park
Amal Khodair-Vemana from Amkar Real Estate says inner-south, such as Unley and Parkside, and coastal suburbs, such as Brighton and Semaphore Park will always be popular.
“The lifestyle in South Australia is very attractive to many people with City fringe suburbs, and coastal suburbs offering the greatest appeal for buyers,” says Amal. “Business people often look for established infrastructure, proximity to shops and schools, and of course ease of access to the City and Airport. So the inner-south is highly desirable. Similarly, those wanting a beach lifestyle also want the same established infrastructure and easy access to what is important to them.”
However, for those looking to buy or sell a property under $400,000 within 20km’s of the Adelaide CBD then Mansfield Park is a growth suburb with a median sold price of $375,000. This is based on a three-bedroom home sold within 20km’s of the City in an area with at least 10 sales.
Beach suburbs have been increasing in popularity for years so where can you find the best beach side suburb offering the greatest growth? Well, if you look at units not family homes, then North Brighton is the hot suburb with a median unit price of $543,684 representing a growth over 12-months of 33.9%.
