Cut-price waterfront property locations revealed

Staff Reporter 2 minute read

Prospective buyers looking to purchase property by the water could snap up a bargain if they act now.

According to RP Data the global financial crisis, which has seen many highly geared individuals suffer, has resulted in heavy discounting and a sky-rocketing of listings in waterfront properties.

Cameron Kusher, RP Data senior research analyst, said cashed-up buyers looking to snare a bargain may now find many idyllic waterfront properties – particularly in regional coast areas – within their grasp.

RP Data has identified Port Pirie West in South Australia as the cheapest oceanfront suburb in the country where the median house price is just $140,000.

Not far behind is Victoria’s Loch Sport where the median house price is $149,250.
