It’s certainly not the cheapest suburb in all of Adelaide – with a median of more than $1m, Rose Park is one of the city’s most prestigious suburbs.

But the neighbourhood offers a range of villas and period homes priced from around half a million dollars, which are proving to be popular with owner-occupiers and investors alike, says Hamish Will, auctioneer and salesperson at Harcourts Brock Williams in Adelaide.

“The top end of the market is going very strong. It’s definitely a vendors’ market, as there are a lot of buyers ready to buy, including a mix of locals, interstate and eastern seaboard buyers, as well as buyers from offshore in China and India,” explains Will.

“They love a villa – a Victorian villa in a city fringe location is in high demand. I’m marketing one in Hewitt Avenue, Rose Park, at the moment and we’re just getting rushed off our feet.”

Auctions have proven a popular strategy for vendors keen to secure a strong price, but some two- and three-bedroom homes in the area are still offered for private treaty sale.

“There is a shortage of stock and a real supply and demand issue,” Will adds. “There are more people than houses, so I think it will continue to go very strongly.”
