But when the demand is low and the supply is high, the price is low.” In this saying, Perth property market boost because the house prices is high because of the higher demand of property. Mining is the number one factor why the demand is very high in this city. But nowadays, mining slowly down which the housing market affected. Will Perth property market continues to slump?
