There is good news for those who own South Australia’s Finest homes, as over the past year the top end of the market has been the strongest performer in the state, reports Episode 127 of Toop TV.

While all city dwelling values have decreased over the past year, according to RP Data in the top 20% of Adelaide suburbs, prices have only declined by -4.6%.

This is a smaller drop than the combined capital cities’ average, where prices in the premium sector have fallen by -5.7%.

The difference in the changes in home values across the nation’s top end properties has been attributed to the premium housing market being comparatively much more affordable in Adelaide than in other cities.

Elise Partington, presenter and producer of Toop TV (Toop & Toop Real Estate's very own online property segment) says that in South Australia’s middle market, prices have fallen by over 5% and dropped even further at the affordable end of the market.

“In fact Adelaide’s most affordable suburbs were among the weakest performers over the year nationally, where the only other sector which had a larger fall in values was Melbourne’s premium housing market,” Miss Partington says.

Miss Partington says that “this has been blamed on the state’s capital having a greater prevalence of mortgage hardship in these areas where buyers have been forced to sell, driving down house prices.”

“These results show how diverse the housing market is and that it’s important to research the part of the market you’re interested in if you’re thinking of buying or selling.”
