Have Your Smashed Avo…and eat it too!

Housing affordability has once again sparked the public’s furore, this time rallying against an article in The Australian decrying millennials and their penchant for expensive breakfasts in the face of knuckling down and saving for a house deposit. No, really.

Rather than splitting the generational divide even further into avs and av nots, we assessed the current Adelaide market and realised maybe, just maybe, we can have it all in South Australia.

Seeking your first family home, a break into the property market or an executive professional/couple desiring a city/fringe lifestyle? We look at a range of apartment, unit and affordable housing options scattered across metropolitan Adelaide. Keeping in mind the yearly minimum wage rate in SA ($35,614), we believe these properties afford great opportunity at an extremely accessible entry point.
