City of Wanneroo - Northern suburbs of Perth, WA
Strong population growth is propelling the City of Wanneroo away from its past as a remote, bushy wasteland towards becoming a vibrant seaside city destined to house 363,000 residents – a population comparable to Queensland’s Sunshine Coast.
Over the past decade, 177,000 new residents have moved to this municipality, making it the fastest-growing LGA in Western Australia.
Its popularity with young families is evident too, prompting the rising number of house sales and earning it a prominent place in recent editions of Hotspotting’s Price Predictor Index. This has placed the City of Wanneroo at the forefront of the growing recovery in the Perth property market.
Growing industrial areas are providing employment opportunities and with houses in most suburbs priced in the $300,000s and $400,000s, properties in the City of Wanneroo are worthy of attention by investors.
Some sectors of this market have had vacancy rates above 4% in the recent past, a factor common throughout the Perth metropolitan area following four years of market decline. However, there are increasing signs of recovery and most postcodes in the Wanneroo LGA now have vacancy rates below 2.5% and trending in the right direction.
