Affordability is just one of the perks of living in Salisbury North, with the suburb’s median price currently sitting just above $250,000.

It’s surrounded by a wide range of retail, recreation, school and public transport amenities.

Pam Russell is selling her three-bedroom house bought little more than a year ago in Taringa Rd, as life takes her in a new direction.

“I bought the home because I knew the area and it was in my price range,” Ms Russell says.

“The house also had an updated kitchen.

“I have previously lived at Salisbury, Salisbury Park and Salisbury Heights. This is a really friendly neighbourhood with lovely people, so I am sad to be leaving them. But it’s time to move on to a new chapter of my life.”

Ms Russell says the suburbs convenience and proximity to everything she needs was a huge selling point.

“There are plenty of local shops and parks within walking distance, besides major shopping centres like Springbank Plaza, which I use, and Parabanks nearby,” Ms Russell says.

“Lake Windemere lets people like my son go fishing for carp or enjoy a walk. I find Salisbury North a very nice area to walk around with lots of reserves and sports grounds. And there’s a new subdivision off Diment Rd that’s adding to the housing choices.”

Pam says there’s a good mix of age groups and families living in the area.

“My neighbours have got young children but there are also retirees living nearby,’’ she says.

CoreLogic data shows the median house price has increased 16.5 per cent in the past five years.

Sales agent David King of Harris Real Estate says Salisbury North is especially popular with first homebuyers, including migrant families.

“It’s a great little entry point into the housing market,” he says.

“But despite the relatively cheap land, it’s also a good area for investors, returning a good yield for their money. You could get weekly rental in the low $300s on a nicely presented home costing about $275,000 or so.”

LOCATION Salisbury North is an outer suburb, about 20km north of Adelaide’s CBD, near Burton, Paralowie, Salisbury, Salisbury Downs, Elizabeth South and Edinburgh Airport.
