 While the Perth property market has clearly had its challenges over the past couple of years, it’s good to see there are a number of suburbs across the Perth metropolitan area that are bucking the trend and experiencing solid growth.

In some cases the growth over the past 12 months has been significant. Real Estate Institute of WA (REIWA) President Hayden Groves said, “Pleasingly these high growth suburbs are all within the trade-up sector, rather than first home buyer territory. This shows that more home owners are recognising there is plenty of opportunity in the current real estate market to take their next step.”
