"High Growth Potential"

The northern suburbs are growing fast particularly in Paralowie which is rapidly becoming the jewel in the crown.The recent release of The Orchard at Direk (the new Salisbury) will add value to the area. Where there were once dated housing, we now have stylish brand new up market houses. Along with this evolutionary shift in housing requirements and changing demograhics is the emergence of a variety of cafe's, restaurants, specialty shops & beauty salons to cater for our changing socio-economic structure.Despite this transformation Paralowie has retained it's vibrant and friendly community spirit.This exciting transformation is still in it's early days and should provide for enormous growth in the coming years.

The northern suburbs are growing fast particularly in Paralowie which is rapidly becoming the jewel in the crown.The recent release of The Orchard at Direk (the new Salisbury) will certainly add value to the area. Where there were once dated housing, we now have stylish brand new up market houses.

"A growing town with tonnes of potential"

Paralowie is a residential suburb in the north of Adelaide and is nestled in between similar residential suburbs of Burton, Salisbury Downs, Globe Derby Park, Salisbury North and Parafield Gardens.
The town was developed in the early seventies and saw rapid growth in the eighties and nineties and has been slowly evolving to it's current existence. Paralowie has a varied range of residential prices with prices from the low $200's to as high as low $400's but their are a few exceptions. I have been a resident for 10 years and have seen many highs and lows. The area is very well serviced with schools,shops and public transport in abundance. Their are pockets of older homes (1970 -1980) and pockets of 1990 to 2002 homes plus the latest and ongoing more modern offerings.The majority of residents are owner occupiers but their is also investment opportunity via rental properties including units and apartments. My experiences in the area and in particular in my street tell me that the neighbours are very friendly and that noise at night and barking dogs are not a problem. Yes they bark but only when they have too. In terms of real estate the area has a lot to offer with reasonable priced homes and good growth potential though the market is soft at the moment but positive signs are emerging.
Pros
  • A great place to raise your family
  • Close to all facilities including a park.
  • Good quality affordable homes
Cons
  • No sea views

"Fantastic affordable neighbourhoud - in most parts."

Paralowie has varying demographics between different sections, and is well worth considering. Don't be put off by a couple of inspections in dissapointing streets, keep looking and you will find a great area with clean streets, great neighbours etc.

Most houses are around 20 years old, with some parts still being built.
