"Baby Boomer retirees looking for a sea change are among those that have made the move to the Fleurieu Peninsula to take advantage of the wonderful lifestyle on offer. I have so many stories! I recently found a property for a couple who's been renting in a metropolitan beach suburb and they can't believe they can get a beautiful, larger, two storey property down here for less. This trend is not only lifting population numbers but boosting local businesses, schools and community services which themselves are drawing additional younger residents to the region to fill jobs." - Mandy Strauch, Property Manager, Harcourts South Coast


Rental properties on the Fleurieu Peninsula’s South Coast are commanding very strong demand and returns due to the region’s changing demographic profile and an increasingly tight rental market. Harcourts South Coast's portfolio of long-term rental properties under management - one of the largest on the Fleurieu Peninsula - is at capacity and we are fielding an average of five enquiries a day from would-be renters, with additional investors required to help ease the severe shortage of rental stocks.


More people are moving to the South Coast for a number of reasons. They range from retirees to young families. Some are coming to take up jobs while others are coming for the lifestyle and commuting to jobs elsewhere on the Fleurieu and in Adelaide’s South. This provides an immediate opportunity for investors to purchase an affordable property in one of the State’s fastest growing regions and enjoy a strong return immediately.


This investment strategy also positions potential investors for capital gains into the future, with the population of the Fleurieu Peninsula (and hence, housing requirement) forecast to rise significantly. Additionally, as an owner of property on the South Coast, you will be well positioned to redevelop your property to meet future demand for additional housing or to move in and enjoy the Fleurieu lifestyle yourself – either permanently or for holidays.


Victor Harbor and the Fleurieu Peninsula have been identified as being among Australia’s hottest real estate markets and strongest population growth centres between now and 2050. The National Sea Change Task Force suggests the region’s population will swell from 40,000 currently to about 150,000 by 2050 and projects worth more than half a billion dollars are currently proposed to support that growth, including duplication of the Southern Expressway.


Current rental demand and future population pressures are not currently reflected in prices, providing a window of opportunity for astute investors. On the following pages you will find a range of hand-picked quality properties, well suited to meet diverse investment criteria. Each has been assessed for its rental potential and we would be pleased to develop depreciation schedules for these properties to demonstrate the benefits of investment.
