Beach suburbs

    Recommended Posts

    Guest kessy77

    Can anyone give reccomendations of the different beach suburbs. We would be looking for a 3/4 bed home with decent sized garden with garage for maximum 330,000AD. Good links to city centre and good schools would be essential. We are family of 3 with 2 dogs if this helps, used to living in a small touristy type town in the Highlands of Scotland! Thanks. There is so many, trying to narrow it down!

    have a look at housing for sale on domain.com.au or realestate.com.au - on both sites you can search using the map, inputting specific details such as price, plot size, bedrooms etc

    If your max is $330k then i think a 3 bed at Aldinga is what you'd be looking at.

    $330K will be a lot of searching, but don't give up...... there are a lot of factors that change things over here:)

    If you are willing to do some work then you can still get a solid home in Christies and Port Noarlunga. Our daughter bought a house in Port Noarlunga for $310,000. She's right accross the road from the Onkaparinga river and 2 minutes from the village and beach.

    There are some great beaches along the south east coast but the closer you get to the city the more expensive things get.

    I know that I am biased but google the images of Port Noarlunga...and also ask people what they think of Port Noarlunga! Loads of our guests decide to rent long term in Christies and Port Noarlunga when they leave us.

    Have a look at the pics of Port Noarlunga South (I know Port Noarlunga again!) but the place is stunning....Look no further than....you guessed it....Port Noarlunga. And if you enjoy fishing...the Port Noalunga jetty is great!

    This should get a few comments!

     

    Cheers.

    I'm going by what we can borrow over here in the UK, I'm not sure how it works over there. Thought better to research on the 'safe' side of our budget!!

    Hey Tamara...I'm curious as to the size of your daughter's house for $310K in Port Noarlunga. Please PM if you don't want to post online as appreciate that's fairly sensitive information.

     

    Thanks, in anticipation.

    Hi Carol Ann,

    The house is 3 bedroomed, laundry, toilet, bathroom, dining, lounge and open plan kitchen. It's in River road, Port Noarlunga. The house is around 140 square metres but the plot is about 740 metres. She's right across the road from the tennis courts and the river is 50 metres away. They are busy doing work on the house...kitchen, etc but it's a great starter home.

    We also have one / two (a house and cottage) in Port Noarlunga and we are moving back at the end of the year. I know that prices are going up as Port Noarlunga was one of the suburbs listed as being tipped for massive price increases.

    As you know...great place to live....and great returns on investments!

    Hi, well..we love PN as we've rented here since we arrived (more or less) and I, like you think it has everything. But.it's still 45 mins by train from the city. That apart..it's still a fab place to live, cinema, bowling, ice rink, sport centre, huge shopping arcade, then the beach, jetty (snorkelling my passion), pub, lovely little shops, book shop, resaurant, art centre, library beside colonaides, theatre! not been but it's there...heeeeeeeeeeeaps happening in PN. So hopefully as you say..great return on investment as we've just bought here....happy days!

    Haw Kessy, you'll not get much on that budget, hen.

     

    Rather find employment and plan around your income

    Mortgages are worked out differently here, uk borrowing capacity is different to oz borrowing capacity.

    Get here and speak to advisors/banks and see what they say to what you can afford/buy.

    Down south is cheaper, and its lovely too.

    thanks so much guys for all your help. much appreciated. We rent over here so dont have a property to sell, though we do have the option to buy the property we rent but as 1st time buyers in the current market its virtually impossible. Just wanted an idea of what we could hope to achieve in Oz, no point in making the move if we end up in the same situation we are in now.

     

    Have been researching port noarlunga, it looks beautiful. 40mins by train is a fair distance though, how long does it take by car? What are the rental prices like in this area? And are the schools good?

    Sorry to ask so many questions!
