Located around 12km north of the Adelaide CBD, Pooraka has good access to the city via the Main North Road and is a couple of kilometres away from the nearest train station at Dry Creek.
It’s a suburb whose property market was a beneficiary of increased market confidence as 2011 progressed, says Raine & Horne Ingle Farm principal Wayne Masters.
“Australians still need and want to purchase homes,” he says. “We are seeing good levels of enquiry from local and interstate buyers, and we expect confidence to improve throughout the remainder of the year.”
And he believes that Pookara will continue to prove popular with both investors and owner-occupiers, thanks to the type of home that it has to offer.
“In Pooraka you can secure older-style three bedroom homes with large yards, which are ideal for families,” he says.
“These properties provide a point of difference to modern homes, which are typically on smaller blocks, and sell for between $290,000 and $350,000.”
He adds that many of these blocks can be developed, subject to council approval, which will be of particular interest to investors who are hoping to add value through development as the market recovers from its slow patch.
