Adelaide house and unit prices were one of only two capital cities to record annual house price growth, and the only capital to record unit price growth, according to Domain's latest House Price Report.

The report found that as a result, house and unit prices are now both at record highs.

Adelaide house prices grew 0.1% over the quarter and 1.7% over the year to $537,971.

Adelaide unit prices grew 2.4% over the quarter and 0.7% over the year to $321,430.

Domain Senior Research Analyst, Dr Nicola Powell said: “Adelaide continues to provide buyers and sellers steady market conditions, proving to be more resilient than other capital cities under the changed lending landscape. With the credit crunch impacting investors more than owner-occupiers, Adelaide is somewhat insulated from the restricted flow of housing finance — the southern capital has always skewed towards owner occupiers.

“House prices have risen annually for five-and-a-half years. Adelaide is renowned for a modest pace of growth, this steady performance means it the second best performing capital city, only behind Hobart. Adelaide house prices remain higher than Hobart and Darwin and are likely to surpass Perth in the coming months. For units, Adelaide is the best performing capital city over the December quarter.

“Overall buyer interest in Adelaide has risen, with Domain recording a rise in the number of views per listing. The stronger performance of units relative to other capital cities is likely to be partly investor led, as the lower purchasing costs and steady capital growth entices investment activity. The burgeoning food scene, established wine region, and low Australian dollar has helped to support interstate and overseas visitation to the South Australian capital.

“Adelaide's sustainable growth in tourism is likely to be another investor drawcard. Confidence is rising on the back of a growing jobs market. We’ll also see large scale projects like submarine construction and the planned new Australian Space Agency support population growth and demand for housing.”
