Named as Australia’s most liveable city, Adelaide has an incredible amount to offer future home buyers. From picture-perfect beaches to the hills, city and community living, Adelaide has a vast range of suburbs offering something unique to each home buyer.
If you’re trying to decide which suburb could be the right fit for you, your family and your fur babies, this one is for you.

You love the beach…

We get it. There’s nothing quite like walking down to the beach after work or taking your children (or fur-children) for a quick dip on the weekend between errands. If your dream home location is by the beach, there are some coastal suburbs where prices are yet to leap off the charts. Seaside suburbs such as Aldinga and Christies Beach offer buyers median house prices ranging from $440K to $475k (based on a standard three bedroom home). While the city commute might take a bit longer, a range of public transport options and the Southern Expressway mean you won’t even notice.
If you a willing to sacrifice the walking distance for a newer home, suburbs such as Seaford Rise and Seaford Meadows also have more affordable, newly built options. 

You work in the city…

It might be a little harder to find an affordable homes near the city, but it’s definitely not impossible. Suburbs such as Hectorville, Kurralta Park and Bowden offer home buyers some reprieve when looking for homes close to the CBD, particularly if you’re on the hunt for a town house or unit. 
To assist more home buyers with affordable options, the Government initiative HomeSeekerSA has a range of homes and apartments for sale at a fixed price of no more than $422,050. Available for eligible buyers, HomeSeekerSA exists to reduce housing stress and get more South Australians into their own homes.

You have kids…

Finding a home that suits your family and its growing needs, especially for a young family, can be like trying to solve a tricky maths equation. Backyards, school zones, safety and community facilities all play a role when making this decision. Oh, and it has to be affordable. House hunting in areas such as Edwardstown, Mitchell Park and Golden Grove offers buyers highly sought-after school zones, as well as a range of community facilities and parks. Problem solved!

You want some more space…

Do you want a bigger yard? Or maybe an extra bedroom? With larger houses and plots of land hard to find near the CBD, widening your search to the Adelaide Hills or further north and south could provide those who don’t mind a commute with plenty of options. Adelaide Hills towns such as Mount Barker, Oakbank and Echunga offer so much in terms of land and house size, greenery and open parks.
Northern suburbs such as Gawler and Williamstown can also offer spacious homes, as well suburbs further south, including Reynella and Hackham.
