Summer lifestyle attracts buyers to Adelaide’s beaches

With South Australia enjoying some early summer-like weather conditions in October, there is expected to be a renewed focus on Adelaide’s coastal suburbs in the run-up to Christmas.

In early October, a gorgeous elevated two-bedroom apartment with inspiring direct ocean views at 65/13 South Esplanade, Glenelg sold for $508,500 by Raine & Horne Kurralta Park after the first open home. This apartment, which was on the market with another agent for several months, offers an excellent location that is within easy walking distance to all Glenelg has to offer. These attractions include restaurants, cafes, shopping, and a direct tram to the City. “At this time of year, the beach suburbs look more appealing thanks to our blue skies and fine golden sand,” said James Trimble, General Manager, Raine & Horne. “South Australians will head to the beach at every opportunity and at this time of year, convince themselves about the idea of moving to the coast to enjoy the benefits seven days a week.”


The warmer weather and the prospect of a new school year will also result in more interest in suburbs serviced by Adelaide’s sought-after government and private schools, James added. “For vendors, now that the sun is out, it’s essential that you take the time to showcase to your buyers a beautiful balcony or gorgeous garden to demonstrate the attractive summer lifestyle Adelaide offers.
