When purchasing an investment property, it is important to consider which suburb to invest in that will attract a high demand of tenants to minimise the cost of vacancy and that will see long term growth overall.

Adelaide has remained a strong state to invest in, with house prices increased by 2.7% in just the last quarter and average prices currently at $380 per week, with apartment averages at $300 per week.

Lets take a look at Adelaide’s most in demand suburbs!


Golden Grove in Adelaide’s northeast is arguably the surprise on the list of SA’s most in-demand suburbs for rental properties.

The suburb, which sits in the Tea Tree Gully council area is about 23km from the CBD, has a median weekly rental price of $363.

It came fourth on a list of SA’s most searched-for rental suburbs on, sitting alongside more inner-suburban and seaside areas.

Inner city and beach side suburbs predictably took out the top spots on the most in-demand rental suburbs list, with cosmopolitan Unley at number one.

The suburb, which is less than 5km from the CBD, is known for its shops and cafes, and restaurants.
