The last year has presented its challenges for everyone. The pandemic affected the way we live and work in unprecedented ways. The property industry was certainly not exempt from this adversity. When looking back at the start of 2020, the fundamentals of residential property management in WA were in a very positive and stable state. This was significantly interrupted by COVID-19 which saw the introduction of new legislation, particularly the eviction moratorium.

While the effects of these changes were felt nationwide, Western Australia has started to glimpse a brighter future as we enter an essentially post-COVID-19 environment. So, what is happening in the Western Australian market right now? More specifically, is it time to invest in the residential property market?

John Percudani, Managing Director of Realmark, shared his thoughts and observations on Western Australia’s property market.

“Ultimately, there is a real renewed focus on residential property. So, the demand for rental properties and home ownership generally, has spiked dramatically. With very low interest rates, vacancy rates and rentals that are solid, but are being held artificially low at this point in time and are likely to increase in the new year,” said John.

“I would suggest to you that now is a very good time to be looking at the investment market in Western Australia. We believe that prices will generally increase in 2021 and beyond. Inevitably, the return on investment will be very powerful.

“When you consider that inflation will be low, interest rates will be historically low, yields are likely to rise, and the demand for residential property solid. Then this would be a very good venture for any investor looking to place their money in a secure and positive environment, John commented.
