The market is moving in the West

Maya Salik, Valuer — Perth

The Perth residential real estate has been moving quickly post covid with significant growth experienced over the past 12 to 18 months, after an extended number of years of stagnant growth post the Mining Boom.

The real key to the Perth market has been significant migration in the owner-occupier sector and affordability in comparison to the East Coast capital cities, with investors moving back into Perth in significant numbers.

Some key highlights about Perth from the latest PropTrack Home Price Index are as follows:

  • Perth led all capital cities with 0.99% monthly growth in March 2024;
  • Perth has experienced the highest annual capital growth of all capital cities at 18.62%;
  • Perth has experienced a 57.3% change in median value to $660,000 since March 2020
