Why a townhouse might be right for you

Adelaide is currently experiencing huge growth in the apartment market, with more couples, families and retirees wanting to downsize their living space without downsizing their way of living.

As land prices become more expensive, apartments in Adelaide have become increasingly popular and more people are buying smaller blocks of land at a more affordable price tag. Investing in an apartment can be cost effective, for both mortgage and rental payments, as well as general living expenses such as bills and maintenance.

The “Adelaide apartment lifestyle” is certainly attractive to those who are wanting to save their pennies, whilst living conveniently close to entertainment and transport. On top of the financial investment, apartments in Adelaide also tend to come with added communal benefits, such as BBQ’s and playgrounds, where residents can socialise and utilise the amenities without the price tag that usually comes with it.

Whilst apartments in Adelaide are on the rise, what many people who are looking for their new home don’t realise is that for the same investment they could receive better value for money by coming slightly out of the city and living in a townhouse.

Like apartments in Adelaide, townhouses can be lower maintenance than house and land packages, and are becoming increasingly appealing to not only families and first-home-buyers, but also to retirees and couples that are after a “lock up and leave” lifestyle. Residents are able to sleep easy, knowing that their home has added security to keep their belongings safe, as well as not having to worry about a large property to maintain and upkeep.


You won’t just own the townhouse, but you’ll own the land beneath it too. The land increases in value far quicker than the value of an apartment alone. Apartments can always be built, but land runs out!
