It’s not just location, location, location in the property game

Research Tuesdays

Research Tuesdays - Unlocking property insights

The residential property market remains the most popular option for Australians looking to invest their hard-earned savings, but knowing when and where to take the leap into home ownership can be challenging.

In the latest Research Tuesdays, Unlocking Property Insights, University of Adelaide property academic Peter Koulizos will dissect South Australia’s housing market.

He will break down the conflicting opinions and substantial commentary which potential homeowners encounter when deciding when and where to invest.

The public lecture, which will also be live streamed, will look back on how the Australian housing market has evolved since the early 2000s, as well as insights into the up-and-coming Adelaide investment hotspots, and explain the real relationship between interest rates and property prices.

Mr Koulizos said it’s not just ‘location, location, location’ when it comes to property.

“Location is the most important aspect in property but when it comes to investing in property, there are other important factors - people should be thinking, ‘location, land, looks’,” Mr Koulizos said.

“Buying the right type of property in the right street and within the right suburb is the key to making money in property.

“The Sydney and Melbourne property markets are often in the news, but people will be very pleasantly surprised with how well the South Australian? residential property market has performed over the last 20 years.”



Peter Koulizos has been teaching in real estate and property investment for over 25 years, including as the immediate past Program Director of the Master of Property at the University of Adelaide’s School of Architecture and Civil Engineering.

Peter researches property markets around the nation, looking for the best suburbs to invest in each capital city. He has published three books: The Property Professor’s Top Australian Suburbs, Property vs Shares and, most recently, The Diary of a Small Developer, with Margaret Lomas.
