    Can anyone recommend a good buyers advocate in the Adelaide area? ...and also your reasons why you'd recommend them?

    I don't know, thats the problem. As a comparison, I know bayside Brisbane well(Wynnum/Manly), and in this area I found land and built in the area. Would love to do it again their, but land is now going for >100K more than what I paid for the 2 blocks in 2012 and 2013.

    So, in Adelaide, I don't really know what areas to focus on. I've primarily been looking at the areas SE of CBD, ie South of Anzac Hwy running to Glenelg - the area seams to be serviced by 2 train lines, theres some large shopping centres and schools, and I think a hospital. Would prefer to go along the beach, similar to whatI've done in Brissy, but I think the price is high in those areas, sothinking something midway between CBD and beach.

    In terms of what type of investment, I suppose a a freestanding house, however a townhouse or similar with its own driveway/street frontage (no active BC) and large land coponent could also be ok.
    Happy to build rather than house if numbers stack up also, but also a house a few years old at the right price could be ok.

    In the end it comes down to $$, and looking for something comparable to what I've got up North but at lower entry.

    Happy to look at other areas, but don't know where?

    After looking at what you've written above, i'd highly recommend you read the Southern Suburbs of Adelaide thread in the Where to Buy section.

    A lot of souther suburbs are not that far from the beach, can be close to the train lines, and depending how far out you go, you could pick up something for under $300k.

    That's my knowledge purely from living in Adelaide and reading these forums. Look up places like Lonsdale, Morphett Vale, Reynella, Happy Valley, Seacliff. They're all south and along or near the beach, and not far from the trains. Can't say you'll get into them for $300k, but it'll give you a reference point.

    Hi JK200SX

    I do a lot of work in Adelaide in the suburbs you've mentioned. However, as part of the service I assist clients to define and refine their investment strategy before we start looking in any particular areas. First of all we would establish the most appropriate property strategy, then decide on the type of property that would work best with the selected strategy. Finally, we would decide on the best areas / suburbs for that type of property to be located in.

    Anyhow, feel free to touch base if you need professional assistance.

    Thank you, Paul.

    NB: thank you Jacque for a recommendation :)
