What properties in Adelaide suit your investor profile?

By Brett Pilgrim

Every investor is different and so are their goals when it comes to their rentals in Adelaide. Are you looking for high yields or greater capital gains in 2015? The long-term strategy would suggest looking at growth in property values, while many investors with short-term goals would prefer cash flow.

Capital gains for property in Adelaide

According to SQM Research, houses in Adelaide are still achieving price growth, suggesting that investors looking for high capital growth should look at free-standing homes. The increase for the month to 6 January was 0.2 per cent and the annual gain was 3 per cent.

Units decreased in price for the month by 0.1 per cent and have only gained 2.6 per cent for the year. The low cost of these dwellings suggests they are more suited to investors seeking cash flow over long-term gain.

Cash flow property in Adelaide

Property in Norwood is always a good bet for rental yields – especially units. In fact, all across Adelaide units have been achieving a higher rate of implied gross yield than houses. This is especially true for two bedroom units, which have reached heights other types of property are unable to achieve, according to SQM Research data.

Asking rents across the city of increased almost across the board, but again, units are the shining star. SQM Research reveals that over the last month units have increased in rent prices by 1.3 per cent. Two bedroom units specifically have risen by 1.8 per cent. As can be expected by some of the statistics reviewed earlier, standalone houses have not increased as much – 0.5 per cent to be exact. Smaller freestanding homes, such as three bedroom houses, are at the bottom of the pile with a 0.5 per cent drop in asking rents over the month.

When considering your investment portfolio, think about your investor profile and what purchases will help you to achieve your goals.
