DAYTON was one of the top five suburbs in the metropolitan area recording more sales in June than it did in May, according to reiwa.com data.
Meanwhile, it has been reported that CoreLogic figures show in Wattle Grove the median house price has incresed almost 90 per cent during the past 10 years to $506,235.
REIWA president Hayden Groves said REIWA data showed apart from Dayton and the other 30 suburbs Perth house sales were down in June.
Mr Groves said a further eight suburbs also saw sales volumes stabilise over the month.
“While house sales activity in Perth decreased in June this is not unexpected with the onset of winter, but our analysis also shows a substantial number of suburbs saw sales volumes improve during the month,’’ he said.
“Duncraig, Mosman Park, Waikiki, Dayton and Palmyra were the five best performing suburbs, with each recording significant improvements in the number of houses sold between May and June.
He said reiwa.com data showed eight of the 10 best performing suburbs in June had median house prices below $550,000, which were traditionally areas with a lot of first home buyer activity.
“Mosman Park was the only million-dollar suburb to make the top 10 in June, with sales volumes in the suburb lifting back to normal levels in June.
“Perth continues to present good opportunities for buyers, especially in the more affordable end of the market.
“The latest reiwa.com data suggests suburbs in the $550,000 and below price bracket are seeing healthy activity levels, with first home buyers taking advantage of the conditions to secure their first property before prices inevitably rise again. In terms of the overall market, REIWA expects house sales activity to remain moderate in Perth throughout winter, with improvements expected during spring.”
