National Australia Bank (NAB) data lists Mount Barker behind Morphett Vale and Woodcroft which tied for first place, and Hallett Cove and O’Halloran Hill which tied for second place.
According to the Courier – a NAB spokesperson has revealed that first home buyers made up a staggering one in five purchasers in Mount Barker in the last six months of 2022.

Bree – a first homebuyer at Aston Hills said that “I chose Aston Hills as the land was well priced for the sizes, the community seemed so friendly, and the master plan including the future village complex were big selling points… Being so close to wineries and restaurants is also very cool!”.
