How far away from your preferred area would you be willing to stray for a more affordable home?
According to a new survey from realestate.com.au, 44 per cent of people do not want to move more than 10 kilometres from their preferred location, while 20 per cent of people wouldn't budge by more than 5 kilometres.
Some might describe it as stubborn, but we know people sometimes just have to have what they want. And with the rich diversity of wonderful suburbs surrounding Adelaide, it's no wonder. The Adelaide CBD is a cultural hotspot in Australia and if you look at neighbouring suburbs, you'll find many wonderful places to set up home close by.
Within a 5-kilometre distance of the very centre of Adelaide you can find property in Norwood, North Adelaide and Prospect – hardly a stone's throw from town, and these areas have wonderful park spaces that make you feel as if you're in the quiet of the country. Turn the other way, and you'll likely find your new favourite cafe!
Just beyond that distance but still a mere hop,skip and jump from the CBD you will find real estate in Burnside, where you can buy a home just a few minutes away from both the local primary school and the sublime Hazelwood Park.
