Welcome to your market insight, everything you need to know about the South Australian real estate market!

Here is your summary of how the Adelaide real estate market has performed over the past six months and some expert advice to help you on your property journey.

Take a look through our report below.

Summary of the market

According to the latest CoreLogic report, national home values continued to rise in May, with values increasing by 1.9%, up from a recent low of 1.1% over the three months to January. Despite challenges posed by high interest rates and rising living costs, Adelaide’s housing market has remained robust. The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) maintained the cash rate at 4.35% for most of the first half of the year, making cautious moves to navigate economic uncertainties. This stability in the cash rate has provided some certainty for buyers and sellers alike.

Recent months have seen renewed momentum in Adelaide’s housing values, with a notable 1.8% increase in May, contributing to a 4.3% rise over the rolling quarter. This represents the fastest pace of growth over a three-month period since May 2022. From a dollar value perspective, Adelaide’s median dwelling value has surged by approximately $95,400 over the past 12 months.

The overall resilience of Adelaide’s real estate market in the first half of 2024 is evident. Strong demand and low supply, combined with ongoing economic factors, continue to drive upward pressure on property values. However, these same dynamics also pose ongoing affordability challenges. The interplay between demand, supply, and economic conditions will shape the future of Adelaide’s property market, likely sustaining its growth while also presenting challenges for affordability.
