House price growth beat everyone's expectations in 2021 but which Adelaide suburbs should investors be considering in 2022? In this blog post, we outline the top 5 Adelaide suburbs to invest in 2022.
Our team has crunched the numbers and looked at the data to find the top suburbs based on the following criteria:
Supply and demand dynamics
Proximity from the CBD
Lifestyle and demographics
Long run capital growth potential
Suburb 1: Happy Valley
Our top pick for 2022 is Happy Valley - a peaceful suburb located in the leafy surrounds of Adelaide's southern foothills. The suburb offers an affordable entry point for investors given its median price of around $500,000. The low median price combined with a high average land size makes Happy Valley an excellent location for savvy investors looking to enjoy outsized returns.
Suburb 2: Port Noarlunga
Port Noarlunga offers all of the benefits of the beach lifestyle without the high price tag. The suburb's close proximity to the city is reflected by the fact that it's only 30 minutes by car or around 40 minutes by train from Noarlunga railway station. The suburb is most popular with families and pensioners.
Suburb 3: Seaford
Seaford is located 30km south of Adelaide. Its proximity to the beach, shopping centres and public transport have made it an attractive place to live. Reflecting this, competition in the rental market is fierce with a vacancy rate of around 0.2%. The median price in Seaford has soared 29% in the last year as first home buyers and investors have snapped up homes.
Suburb 4: Modbury Heights
Modbury Heights offers investors all of the ideal features to maximise returns. The suburb is only 16km from the CBD and boasts good schools, shopping centres and recreational facilities nearby. The average block size in Modbury Heights surpasses the state average and offers good prospects for future subdivision and development.
Suburb 5: Morphett Vale
Morphett Vale is Adelaide's largest suburb with more house sales than any other suburb in Adelaide over the prior 12 months. Morphett Vale was initially a suburb with affordable prices that made it an attractive area for first home buyers. However, more recently investors have been rushing into the suburb because of the large average land sizes and low prices.
