Perth Home Market Update by PWC Realty

Why buy and sell in Perth?

Perth is a great place to buy and sell houses. It’s a city with lots of good reasons why you should choose it. With its thriving economy, enviable lifestyle, and diverse property market, Perth presents an irresistible proposition for homeowners and investors alike. Whether you’re looking to buy a house or sell one, Perth is a smart choice. Let’s explore why in this blog post.

Why buy and sell in Perth?

According to recent data from REIWA, Perth once again emerges as a prime destination for both buying and selling houses, and here’s why

Perth’s real estate market witnessed a historic moment in March, with the median house sale price surging by 2.5% to reach $620,000, as reported by REIWA. This remarkable growth wasn’t limited to houses alone; the median unit sale price also saw a healthy increase, rising by 1.2% to $420,000.

Cath Hart, CEO of REIWA, attributed this upward trajectory to the persistent demand for homes, driven by a significant population increase and limited housing supply. With Western Australia’s population soaring by 3.3% to over 2.9 million in the past year, the competition for established homes intensified, propelling prices upwards.

While there’s talk of Eastern States investors eyeing WA’s market, Hart emphasized that local buyers are often the ones willing to pay a premium, driven by emotional connections and long-term plans. This sentiment is reflected in the robust growth of house prices, up by 12.7% year-on-year, and unit prices, up by 5.0%.

The suburbs witnessing the most significant growth in house sale prices in March included Yangebup, Camillo, Beeliar, Mount Pleasant, and Belmont. Rapid turnover in the market, with houses selling in a median of eight days and units in ten, poses challenges for both buyers and sellers.

In such a competitive landscape, understanding the seller’s priorities becomes crucial for buyers. Factors beyond price, such as settlement timelines and conditions, play a significant role in making offers attractive.

Despite the market’s dynamism, listings remain low, with active listings settling at 3,654 by the end of March, a 48.7% decrease from a year ago. This imbalance between supply and demand continues to shape the rental market as well, with median rents rising to $649 per week in March.

With properties leasing at a rapid pace and vacancy rates remaining extremely low, the rental market mirrors the fervor seen in sales. Homes leased in a median of 15 days in March, indicating a high demand for rental properties.

As Perth’s real estate landscape continues to evolve, navigating these fast-paced markets requires diligence and strategic decision-making. Whether buying, selling, or renting, staying informed and adapting to market conditions is key to success.
