Toop TV's property commentators look at why the country property market in regional South Australia is booming (Episode 79 -

Presenter Elise Partington says the grass actually is greener, reporting that house prices rose by 19 percent in Port Augusta, 16 percent in Millicent, 8 percent in Mount Gambier and 5 percent in Victor Harbor. Meanwhile Adelaide house prices have risen only 1 percent in the same timeframe.

"People are hunting the rural market looking for a change in lifestye in an affordable location," Elise says.

"Retirees are seeking a tree change by snapping up cheap property along the Fleurieu Peninslua and in Mount Gambier. The combined forces of more baby boomers retiring, rising rents and the government cuts to the first home buyer's grant are driving home buyers to seek cheaper country homes."
