Westpac has forecasted an 8.0% yearly increase in Perth’s real estate market for 2023, with a subsequent 8.0% rise in the following year.

Supply issues seem to be an ongoing, with property listings on REIWA‘s website falling to a 13-year in June.

Strategic Settlements managing director Trent Fleskens said the only way was up for Perth property prices.

“Perth house prices only drop when sellers need to sell more than buyers need to buy,” he said.

“In an environment where stock available is lower than it’s ever been before and demand is consistently higher than its ever been, there is no feasible argument for softening in the Perth market.”

Fleskens said the rate of price growth would be impacted by when the Reserve Bank decided to end its current cycle of interest rate rises and started to reduce rates again.

“In the meantime, the fundamentals of demand and supply remain the tightest they’ve ever been, on the backdrop of the tightest rental market we’ve ever seen,” he said.

CoreLogic’s Perth home value index increased 1.3 per cent in May and 2.4 per cent over the past three months.

Perth and Adelaide are the only capital cities showing growth year-on-year. Perth is the only city where home values are back to their highest levels. Other major cities have also improved recently.

What’s driving the growth?

Part of the reason many find Western Australia attractive is its booming economy.

The 2023-24 state budget expects the economy to grow by 4.25%, its best growth in nine years. Employers highly seek skilled workers, as the unemployment rate approaches a record low of 3.6% in June.

Moreover, as remote work gains more acceptance, more opportunities have arisen for Australians to leave their homes for Perth.

“The appeal increases when you consider that housing affordability is a big problem in many of our capital cities. It’s easier to buy a home in Perth because the prices are affordable for most people, according to Gavalas.

Perth’s median dwelling price in June was $598,000, much lower than Sydney’s median price of $1.082 million.
