Is $400,000-$500,000 Enough?
Is $400,00 - $500,00 enough to buy a house, we have a large shopping list, we want
1. NICE AREA, LOW CRIME.
2. GOOD SCHOOLS.
3. EITHER CLOSE TO BEACH OR ALTERNATIVELY COUNTRYSIDE.
5. 4 LARGE BEDROOMS PREF 5
6. LARGE PLOT
I Think we may be under budget, roughly by how much?
With half a million bucks you will b able to afford a decent place to live not far from the beech in the city areas and nearer the sea in the outer suburbs
try looking on opentoview.com.au , or realestate.com apart from P.I.A. and adbrits its my fave pastime !!
Put in how many bedrooms and the max limit you will go to and which area, if you just put Adelaide , obviously you get all the subs , then just look on the map , zoom out to see where abouts it is.
Personally we are veering North Eastern subs , older solid brick built.
But I think if you want newer towards the beach you'll still get one for that.
Take a look, obviously the more modernising it needs the cheaper it will be.
An Australian from Adelaide recently recommended the Eastern part of Adelaide, but nobody seems to mention that part. What are the North East suberbs called?

do as i said with the realestate.com .
Put in Adelaide , then when youve done that look at the brief address , it will say which suburb and weather its N.S.E.or W.
Be prepared for a very numb bum.
That would be enough!
Consider stamp duty on your purchase also! You`ll get a decent home for that price in the south!!!
You can do it with that capital but I'd go the top end of of it..
It will be hard to refine your search until you get here I'd say.
Take no one person's opinion as gospel, it may not be to your taste.
You could get all you want with your capital in some nice areas ;)
Unfortunately if you want immediate seafront it would not cover it now in some suburbs - we have a rental in Port Noarlunga South on The Esplanade and would love to stay here when we buy/build but you need $500k minimum for a do-er upper or just land along here now
Have a good look on realestate.com and that will give you a good idea of what is available and where for your money.
Wow, I'd say.......you'll definitly get beachside with that kind of money, have you thought about building your own? You could get one with all your boxes ticked!
I'm sure you'll find a nice place with that sort of budget. Ours is a bit more modest but we've found plenty to suit mainly with 4 bedrooms. One thing i have noticed in general is that if you go for a big house you don't always seem to get the yard to match in the southern suburbs we're looking at but with a bit more money to spend I'm sure you'll be fine.
