Just 18km northwest of Adelaide is the suburb of North Haven.

Its western side is near the coast, and the sailing community makes up a large proportion of its population.

“The area currently offers young families affordable entry-level buying in what is a highly sought-after community-inspired lifestyle,” says Kate Smith, principal at Raine & Horne Semaphore.

An indication of North Haven’s desirability is that the vacancy rate is a very low 0.9%, having dropped 0.4% from the previous year.

The unit market saw slightly stronger growth (1.5%) than the housing market (1.4%).

Units also generate a high rental yield of 4.8% and may represent an excellent investment opportunity.

“Locals favour marina-side homes generally in family-friendly cul-de-sacs. We have quality schooling and great access to public transport,” Smith continues.

“The local government has also just announced the ASC submarine contract, which will be a terrific boost to the area and to the Lefevre peninsula for the year ahead.”

Smith notes that North Haven offers family homes with three to four bedrooms and generally two bathrooms on large allotments.

Given the popularity of sailing as a town activity, residents can join either of two yacht clubs in the area.

Trains, trams and buses are the available public transport options. 

While North Haven’s growth has been slow, this growth trend may continue in the near future, especially in the unit market.
