For generations South Australian’s have holidayed by the beach during the long Summer months - pitching tents, pulling up their caravan or purchasing their own beachside shack just to get their slice of the golden beaches and rolling surf.
Along Adelaide’s metropolitan coastline, Glenelg has been known as a sea-side resort since the mid 1800s and while it remains a draw card for locals and tourists alike, the skyline has certainly changed over the years.
Today amidst the villas, row cottages and terrace houses you’ll find groups of single storey units, double storey flats and luxury high rise apartment complexes such as The Pier and Holdfast Shores - adding a further lifestyle dynamic to this already strong beachside destination.
Apartment living, while not for some, can be a fantastic option for many.
Ever thought that living in a resort would be nice? Well the newer apartment developments offer just that – with a gym, pool and even restaurant facilities, you couldn’t find yourself in a more convenient situation. Put this with a low maintenance, lock up and leave lifestyle, cosmopolitan Jetty Road just a stone’s throw away, plus some spectacular sea views and you’ll be the envy of friends and family in your new home.
For investors there are short and long term gains to adding a beachside property to your rental portfolio.
Traditionally seaside properties, especially those with views, have attracted a higher rent with a stronger yield in the short term while achieving a better capital growth in the long term, as opposed to suburbs further away from the coast. These properties are also being seen as a great alternative to the ‘beach shack’ by semi retirees who are investing first, with the view of a lifestyle change later on.
With all this in mind, why wouldn’t you consider a ‘sea change’?
Toop&Toop’s team of Glenelg sales specialists are holding an apartment expo this weekend, Saturday 28th & Sunday 29th March, where you’ll have an opportunity to view some of the fabulous properties we have available along the coast.
