Adelaide Residential Market / Your Insights for March 2024

Short, sharp, stats & updates on what’s happening in Adelaide’s residential sales market for March 2024.

According to the latest CoreLogic report, Australia’s housing market maintains its upward trajectory, registering a 0.6% increase in the national Home Value Index (HVI) for February. Adelaide, showcasing exceptional resilience, recorded a robust 1.1% surge in dwelling values, outpacing the national average.

Adelaide’s market has consistently demonstrated strength, with monthly growth exceeding 1% for nine of the past ten months. This sustained performance underscores the city’s economic resilience and attractiveness to both investors and homeowners.

A noteworthy trend in February is that the unit market has displayed notable gains over the rolling quarter and the past twelve months. This suggests a potential shift in demand towards higher-density options, likely driven by housing affordability considerations. Units, with values around $285,000 lower than houses, have become an appealing choice for many buyers.

In the realm of monetary policy, the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) maintained the cash rate at 4.35% in February, aligning with expectations amid low inflation figures. Looking ahead, the next interest rate update is scheduled for March 19th. Economists anticipate a stabilization, noting that interest rates may have peaked, thanks to easing inflation and a rising unemployment rate (InDaily, 2024).
