There’s a lot to be said about the Southern suburbs of Adelaide. In the past, the region may have been overlooked by prospective buyers due to the travel difficulties caused by the lack of surrounding infrastructure.
In 2001, a shining light found its way into the lives of residents due to the completion of the Southern expressway—the world’s longest reversible one-way freeway. Many Adelaideans have shared the disappointment in hoping to save time on their journey, only to be advised by the signage that the expressway wasn’t running in that particular direction at the time. Our collective woes were alleviated when the state government decided to fork out for the expansion, meaning we can now enjoy a direct and fast trip when driving to and from the area.
As a result, suburbs like Morphett Vale will continue to grow due to the increased connection to Adelaide and the convenience it brings. If you are looking to join those taking advantage of the area, a pre-purchase building inspection should be your first step before making an offer.
One of the first approaches taken by Detail Building Inspections is to inspect the exterior of the home, especially the roof alignment. When there is an issue here, it is often an indication that other defects are affecting the home’s interior.
By identifying any issues such as the structure or waterproofing of the roof, our building inspection report will advise you what the next step would be to get it fixed. After gaining an understanding of any required costs, you will have the further leverage to negotiate a lower price at the time of sale. In the most extreme cases, if the costs are too much, you might wish to avoid the property altogether to save the headaches down the track.
In addition to the travel advantages, life in Morphett Vale provides a great balance between suburban living and quick and easy access to stunning beaches. The suburb itself is the largest in the state, boasting a population of 23,000 that brings a sense of community and independence to the neighbourhood.
With the vast populace comes the diversity in homes for all types of buyers. There are smaller, more affordable homes for independent professionals; as well as large, spacious blocks for those looking to raise a family.
South Australians feel a sense of pride when we boast about the incredible wine we produce. Residents of Morphett Vale might be more inclined to feel this way due to its proximity to McLaren Vale: one of the world’s most respected wine regions.
Just a twenty-minute car ride will find you amongst vast vineyards, luscious agricultural and more wine than the heart could ever desire. A perfect day trip is to visit the cellar doors for tastings or a delicious lunch. It certainly won’t disappoint.
Great For The Kids
If you are looking for something that is more appropriate for the little ones, the local railway is an excellent option for those in Morphett Vale. It is a self-contained track that exhibits many locomotives of all shapes and sizes. The kids can go for a ride, or learn about the different engines and their uses.
