MARKET UNDER THE RADAR | NORTH PERTH CBD



The fundamentals look to be aligning for the Perth property market with many undervalued markets continue to present strong opportunities as precise continue to rise.


Perth has seen steady growth over the last 12 months on the back of strong affordability, low vacancy rates and solid rental yields.


The Perth property market looks to be entering a growth cycle, as the ‘CoreLogic Home Value Index’ indicates a rise of 11.38% for houses [1].

There are strong coastal markets only a short travelling distance in the north of Perth CBD itself that have key fundamentals in place for potential capital growth in the medium to long term.


These markets not only represent lifestyle qualities for future owner-occupiers being beautiful low residential beachside suburbs with all the key amenities and infrastructure, but certain pockets also offer investors low entry-level prices compared to other cities such as Sydney and Melbourne.


The team at Meridian Australia have helped many of our investors in the last quarter of 2021 in securing investment properties within key suburbs that we believe represent potential in the medium-to-long term.
