“2021 was a big year for the Perth property market overall and an even bigger year for those 10 best performing suburbs, with each recording 35% or more price growth in just 12 months.”

Of the 10 suburbs on the list, five had median house sale prices above $1 million, with three of those tipping over the $1 million mark in 2021.

Mr Collins said, “Woodlands reached the $1 million price bracket for the very first time this year, whilst Wembley Downs’ median price pushed past $1 million for the first time since 2019 and North Beach’s median price pushed past for the first time since 2017.

“We also saw seven of the 10 suburbs either reach or exceed their previous highest median sale prices, which is very good news for property owners in those areas.”

Hillman, Lockridge, and Brooksdale were the only suburbs on the list to not yet reach their previous peak prices.

Mr Collins said, “The lower end of the Perth market was most impacted by the downturn, so it’s not surprising those suburbs are taking a little longer to make up that lost ground.

“It will be interesting to observe the growth trajectory of these suburbs over the next 12 months. REIWA does not anticipate market conditions slowing any time soon, with our Perth outlook forecasting a further 10% price growth in 2022.”
