CORONAVIRUS might have wreaked havoc on the local market, but experts are crediting it with luring swathes of expats back to Adelaide property.

Booth & Booth Real Estate director Charles Booth said he had received many inquiries from expats since the COVID-19 pandemic took hold, and said buyers were attracted by Adelaide’s value, lifestyle and security.

“What’s happened with COVID-19, people are reassessing their lives and if expats were looking at making the move back to SA in the next three to five years or so, they’re doing it now and bringing those plans forward,” Mr Booth said.

“Sydney, Melbourne, London and Singapore – they’re in a much more confined space, whereas here they can get a stunning home on some land close to the city for in some cases less than they’re paying for their smaller apartments.”

Williams Real Estate partner John Williams said expats were always looking for SA property, but the number of inquiries had increased since the pandemic took hold.

“That’s because of the value they get; they can’t believe how they can buy exceptional character properties on huge blocks so close to the city for so cheap,” Mr Williams said.

Tim Donlan is selling his 18 Gawler Tce Walkerville property through Klemich Real Estate. He hoped the home, on a large city-fringe block, in a blue-chip suburb, would strongly appeal to those looking to call SA home once again.

“We’re close to shops, schools and everything you’d want, but it’s also incredibly private – it’s got everything going for it,” Mr Donlan said.

“Since they announced opens were back on our agent said he was quite busy and there’s been a lot of activity around.

“When South Australia is the safest place in Australia … why wouldn’t you want to come and live here in Adelaide?”
