Full summary

Norwood is a well-known and cosmopoiltan suburb, around 3km from the Adelaide CBD.

“There are lots of cafes, shops and restaurants on the parade that are all within walking distance, and you can walk to the CBD in five to 10 minutes," explains Toop & Toop’s Simon Veitch

In terms of demographics, he explains that Norwood attracts a wide range of people who are attracted to the combination of its lifestyle and accessibility. These include retirees, young professionals and families.

Being so close to the CBD he adds that houses tend not to be on large blocks, but there are some beautiful small- to medium-sized character homes that rent well to families in particular.

“The houses are generally three-bedroom,” he adds. “And there’s a good price range. I sold one to an investor recently in the low 600s, and that will rent out for $450 to $500 per week.”

In terms of renovation prospects, owners do well by renovating or extending character homes. The newer 1950s and 1960s homes that aren’t protected by heritage laws tend to be demolished and replaced with newer real estate.

“Developers will build a new home, or a pair of homes,” says Veitch. “These attract retirees in particular because they like newer homes that don’t have so much of a garden to maintain."
