While the overall Perth property market achieved a healthy 13 per cent increase in 2021, a number of Perth suburbs saw gains of more than 25 per cent over the same period.
Damian Collins, Real Estate Institute of Western Australia (REIWA) president, revealed this data and said that “2021 was a big year for the property market overall and an even bigger year for these 10 best-performing suburbs”.
Five of the 10 suburbs on the list had median house sale prices above $1 million, with three of them reaching the $1 million milestone in 2021, according to the REIWA report.
Historic records have been set, and Mr Collins highlighted some milestones:
“Woodlands reached the $1 million price bracket for the very first time this year, whilst Wembley Downs’ median price pushed past $1 million for the first time since 2019, and ’s median price pushed past for the first time since 2017.”
Woodlands landed on the top spot for price growth, with its median house price increasing 35 per cent to $1.23 million.
“We also saw seven of the 10 suburbs either reach or exceed their previous highest median sale prices, which is very good news for property owners in those areas,” Mr Collins said.
The housing market slump had the most impact on the lower end of the Perth market, and these suburbs have yet to catch up from its economic impact, the REIWA president explained.
Mr Collins opined the upward trajectory of Perth’s property market would be sustained, and he even hinted at a double-digit price growth for the next 12 months.
“It will be interesting to observe the growth trajectory of these suburbs over the next 12 months. REIWA does not anticipate market conditions slowing any time soon, with our Perth outlook forecasting a further 10 per cent price growth in 2022.”
Here are REIWA’s top 10 suburbs for price growth in Perth for 2022:
|SUBURB||MEDIAN HOUSE SALE PRICE 2020||MEDIAN HOUSE SALE PRICE 2021||GROWTH RATE|
|1. Woodlands||$911,250||$1.23 million||35.0%|
|2. Shenton Park||$1.27 million||$1.677 million||32.1%|
|5. Wembley Downs||$975,000||$1.25 million||28.2%|
