THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN HOTSPOTS THE AREAS PROPERTY PROFESSOR PETER KOULIZOS SAYS ARE JUST GREAT PLACES TO LIVE AND INVEST IN
KENSINGTON - An eastern suburb without the eastern suburb price tag. Average cost of homes is under $450,000, $350,000 for a unit, its close to town, next to expensive suburbs, has good schools and the trendy café strip on the Parade is nearby.
TORRENSVILLE - Undervalued and set to boom. Affordable character homes and units with plenty of good schools and lots of facilities like shops and cafes on Henley Beach Road.
KINGSTON PARK & MARINO - Easy access into the CBD, by bus and train. South Australia's largest shopping centre Westfield Marion is not too far away. Some nice little cafes in the area, with good schools like Mary Mount College, Sacred Heart College and Brighton Secondary School.
SEMAPHORE - For a little over $400,000 you can still find a house or a unit for less than $250,000, its close to everything you'll ever need.
PORT NOARLUNGA - In the past it was considered a place you would go to spend the day at the beach, or maybe a weekend away, but as the infrastructure has improved, including the Southern Expressway, it's brought Port Noarlunga closer to Adelaide, and it’s now truly a part of the metropolitan Adelaide.
PROSPECT - You can still afford to buy a house or a unit here…and still enjoy the closeness to the city and the attractions of North Adelaide.
VICTOR HARBOR - And the surrounding district of Encounter Bay and Hayborough on the Fleurieu Penninsula - You can get houses in Victor for around $290,000 and just over $300,000 in Encounter Bay and Hayborough and still enjoy the sights and smells of summer.
