Selling points: Christies Beach is an older seaside suburb, which is now becoming a very trendy place to retire, build, invest and develop. Its views, locality and access to Adelaide are only a few things to draw people to this area.

The investment/rental market in Christies Beach and the surrounding areas is very strong. There is a lot of activity in the area with the boost in sales which in turn adds to the investment market as well. The current drop in interest rates is fantastic for our area and we are seeing a lot of changes with new developments popping up and being sold to not only owner occupiers but also to investors interstate and local. 

Most sought after properties: The most popular are three-bedroom, two-bathroom properties with two carports.

Most common properties: This suburb has it all; older small homes, three-storey apartments with penthouses and also conventional family homes.

Top amenities: There are high quality schools surrounding the suburb. Colonnades shopping complex is only minutes away, as are Coles and Woolworths stores. We have local restaurants such as Blue Seas on the beach; and local bakeries and stores along Beach Rd.

Local industry and business: Most residents work locally with some commuting to the city.

Recent changes: The change has been huge and all for the better. The developments have meant we have a diverse community. Our once little seaside town is now a hub with beautiful parks on the beach, upgraded beach front and a community feel.

Best streets: I believe the best areas to buy are Christies Beach itself, Port Noarlunga South and Seaford. The expressway has made it so easy to commute and the rail extension to Seaford has improved sales immensely and investors as well.

Public transport: Local transport is improving. The rail extension will make a huge difference to commuters, the expressway is used by everyone and the bus service has improved regarding reliability.

Main arteries: South Rd takes you to Victor Harbor; to Jervis Bay for the KI Ferry; and also into town going in the other direction. The other major road is Dyson Rd, which takes you to Glenelg and the city. Between the two is the Southern Expressway for commuters.
