The Perth vacancy rate increased to 1.2 per cent in June 2021, the highest-level Perth has seen since August 2020.

REIWA President Damian Collins said not only was it the highest vacancy rate Perth had seen since August 2020, but it was the biggest one-month increase since April 2020.

“While we are still a way off the two to three per cent figure required for a balanced market, the improvements observed since the end of the rental moratorium are encouraging and suggest there is light at the end of the tunnel,” Mr Collins said.

Since the end of March, reiwa.com data shows listings for rent have increased 5.7 per cent in Perth.

The five suburbs to record the biggest percentage froth increase in rental listings include Balga (+108%), Highgate (+90%), Osborne Park (+67%), Karinya (+60%) and Piara Waters (+54%).

Mr Collins added that the increase in listings shows confidence in the market starting to return and is backed by the latest Australian Bureau of Statistics data which indicates investor loan approvals in Western Australia to $498 million in May 2021 – up 10% when compared to April 2021.

However, Mr Collins adds, “As the year progresses, we should see more available rental properties hit the market as investors return and current tenants take advantage of WA’s affordable house prices to become first home buyers.”

A waterfront home in the Hamptons village of Sagaponack, New York, is on the market for the very first time.

Asking $25.95 million, the gray shingle-style home was built in 2008 by the seller and has since been available as a summer rental, but it’s never been up for sale.

Designed by architect Faruk Yorgancioglu, the “waterfront home offers privacy and panoramic beauty that cannot be duplicated under today’s zoning laws,” said co-listing agent Marilyn Clark of Sotheby’s International Realty – Bridgehampton Brokerage.

The seller bought the property, which at the time had two small structures, at auction in 2005 for approximately $2 million, according to co-listing agent Deborah Pirro of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty. Mansion Global could not contact the seller.

The home hit the market Thursday, and in addition to Clark and Pirro, it is co-listed by Raquel Lopez of Sotheby’s International Realty – Bridgehampton Brokerage and Diane Anderson of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty.

Spanning 6,000 square feet, the home is filled with bright interiors, which were designed by New York-based interior designer Steven Gambrel. The open gourmet kitchen flows into a casual dining area and a living space with a fireplace, which is one of two double-sided fireplaces in the home, Pirro said.

“The placement and scale of fireplaces throughout the home is perfection,” she added.

A separate dining room has French doors that open onto a deck, listing photos show.

There are six en-suite bedrooms, including two primary bedrooms. The larger of the two is its own private retreat, outfitted with a fireplace, a sunroom and a large balcony, offering a space to watch the sun set over Sagaponack Pond, according to Sotheby’s.

The home sits on a little more than an acre of waterfront land, bordering Sagaponack Pond, where there’s a private dock, and looking out at the Atlantic Ocean in the distance.

“The location on the pond with the view of the ocean waves breaking is spectacular and unique,” Clark said. “You are close to beaches and the Sagaponack General Store. It is a quick paddle to the famous Sagg Main Beach.”

Other outside amenities include a gunite swimming pool and a hot tub, which are surrounded by a spacious deck, as well as a pool cabana, which has a full bathroom, changing rooms and a sauna. There’s also multiple balconies, decks and a screened porch overlooking the pool, striking a balance between indoor and outdoor living.
