Today, I’m taking a deep dive into why the building bottleneck in Perth is actually supporting the price growth of established properties. 

Anyone who’s hands-on in our market would know that prices are continuing to increase, especially in the lower end suburbs where investors are chasing higher rental yields, and homebuyers are pursuing more affordable options. 

Let me take you through what the stats show us for the number of building approvals, how many homes are under construction and the average cost to build a new home and how all this compares to the demand for housing and why it’s going to keep our market moving up despite these interest rate rises and all the negative media.
