Perth Properties In High Demand

The Perth housing market continues to stand out, with a substantially higher rate of monthly growth compared to any other region, according to a recent CoreLogic report. Housing values rose 1.8% in February, equalling the high recorded in October last year.

Housing values across the nation saw increases in February, with the exception of Hobart. CoreLogic’s research director, Tim Lawless attributes the ongoing rise to a persistent imbalance between supply and demand and the consistently high rates to a combination of comparatively lower housing prices and positive demographic factors that continue to support housing demand.

This is good news for the Perth property market and it’s continuing growth. Not only is Perth one of the most affordable capital cities, it is also experiencing strong population growth.

Perth is one of only two capital cities that had an inflow of people moving in from other capital cities in 2023. According to the Regional Movers Index from Commonwealth Bank, along with Brisbane, Perth bucked the trend that saw all other capital cities losing residents to the regions. Perth’s net inflow from other capital cities and regions was equivalent to 9% of all net inflows.

By comparison, movement for the country’s other capital cities was largely outwards. Sydney and Melbourne both saw high net outflows to the regions of 65% and 35% respectively.
