New data from the Real Estate Institute of Western Australia (REIWA) shows the five suburbs of Marmion, Gwelup, Mount Hawthorn, Fremantle and North Perth all had median house sale prices under $1 million at the end of June 2021, and have now, 12 months on, broken the seven-figure mark.

It comes as 10 Perth suburbs saw a median house price rise at least 26% in the 12 months to June.

Marmion recorded the largest house price growth in the 21-22 financial year — the median sale price rising 39.6% from $966,250 to 1.35 million.

It was closely followed by Gwelup with a median house sale price of $882,500 and finished the financial year at $1.112 million.

Mount Hawthorn followed with 32.8% growth and a median house sale price that ascended from $952,500 to $1.265 million.

REIWA Presidente Damian Collins pointed to the strength of Perth’s property market — reflected in the high growth rates of the top 10 suburbs. Each suburb on this list experienced median house sale price growth of more than 26 per cent in just 12 months, which is significant and suggests competition amongst buyers is high,” Mr Collins said.

Of the 10 suburbs on the list, nine had median house sale prices above $1 million.

“While price growth has been widespread across all price points over the last 12 months, it is Perth’s luxury market that has dominated this list.”

While property markets across Australia have started to decline, the market in WA and Perth has resisted downward pricing pressure.

“REIWA anticipates Western Australia’s strong residential property market conditions will continue for some time, driven by the state’s healthy economy, ongoing population growth and housing shortage,” Mr Collins said.
