Perth Market Snapshot for the week ending 24 March

25 March 2019

Sales activity decreased 12 per cent in Perth this week, with REIWA members reporting 505 transactions. 

This decrease can be attributed to a 15 per cent fall in house sales, a four per cent rise in unit sales, and a 14 per cent fall in vacant land sales over the week. 

Perth’s top selling suburbs this week were Scarborough, Dianella, Duncraig and Thornlie.

There were 17,251 properties for sale in Perth at the end of this week, which is one per cent more than last week.

A closer look at listing stock levels shows house and unit listings both increased by one per cent while vacant land listings decreased by one per cent. 

This week's total figure is on par with levels seen four weeks ago, and are three per cent higher than levels seen a year ago.
