Australia's top suburbs in October

14 Nov 13

Anyone with a real estate career or an interest in the Australian property market will be interested to learn about the top suburbs in the nation for the last quarter.

Real has announced the most in-demand suburbs across the country, and South Australia has once again topped the list.

For the third time in 2013, Parkside has come out as the most demanded suburb by both buyers and investors alike. Interestingly, Victorian suburbs have climbed the ranks and NSW suburb Freshwater has come from nowhere to reach second place on the nationwide top 10.

If your property is in a suburb that has made the top 10, one good piece of real estate advice is to consider selling it, as the results show there's considerable demand in the area. This means you can expect to get a higher price for your property, and will likely have more interest from buyers.

SA's Belair has placed third on the list, followed by Newmarket (Qld), Surrey Hills (Vic), Ashwood (Vic), Blackburn South (Vic), Fitzroy North (Vic), Stanmore (NSW) and Fullarton (SA).
White the NT didn't make the national list, their state top 10 shows Leanyer maintaining its first-ranked position for the second consecutive quarter. Coconut Grove and Rapid Creek round out the top three.

In WA, Bull Creek has dropped from second to 10th over the past three months, and seven new suburbs have reached the top 10 rankings. Nedlands holds the top spot for the most in-demand suburb, followed by Boogaroon and Mount Hawthorn.

The ACT sees Watson and Griffin maintain their places in the top five, where they have stayed for six months. Wright, however, has pipped them at the post for the best ranking.

Finally, West Hobart is the hottest spot in Tasmania, with North Hobart and Bellerive closing out the top three.
