Local agents say Adelaide’s southern beachside suburbs are set to drive house price growth in the south this year.
Agents from Harcourts and Timms Real Estate told realestate.com.au that they expect to see particular increases in Port Noarlunga, Flagstaff Hill and Christies Beach.
Harcourts Christies Beach sales manager Jayne Baily said that Port Noarlunga’s café vibe, beautiful beaches and cosmopolitan feeling would make it a major drawcard in 2018.
Harcourts Tagni sales agent Scott Torney, said that Flagstaff Hill would see growth because blocks had not been subdivided and are generously sized.
Timms Real Estate co-owner Adam Timms, said that young couples priced out of Brighton would see value in Christies Beach.
The median house prices in Port Noarlunga, Flagstaff Hill and Christies Beach are $400,000, $490,000 and $359,500 respectively.
Prices are considerably higher along the western beaches. For comparison, median prices in Henley Beach, Glenelg and Brighton are $846,000, $785,000 and $628,500 respectively.
Other agents in the south picked Hackham and Aldinga as places to watch.
“There are a lot of good things going on in the south … the whole area is starting to blossom,” said McMahon Real Estate managing director Phil McMahon.
