Based on the SQM Research, Perth house rents rose 22.5% and units by 17.1% in the last year. Mining boom drives rents to record high and Perth rent is more expensive than Sydney.
According to APM Chief Economist Dr. Andrew Wilson, “The ‘extraordinary rises’ were caused by a fly-in fly-out (FIFO) workforce that can afford to bid up the price of housing well beyond what locals could afford.
Population growth is one of so many factors that driven the house rent. Due to have boost economy, we are experiencing two speed rental market. Both house rent and house prices are increasing. We will expect that if the mining boom in Perth will continue growing, population grow will increase also. Therefore there will be a huge possibility to continue the rent to soar high.

“Rent in Perth has increased
by as much as 18% in just three months in some areas”, according to some real estate industry. Many renters will not move out of home because rent is overpriced and
unaffordable. The minimal supply of houses in Perth CBD led to the average rent
climbing and most renters give an offer to $20-30 above the asking price to
secure a property. According to WA today.com.au readers claim they are being
forced to live in suboptimal properties, and pay for the privilege. Readers claim it is a house renter’s
market, can charge overpriced with any mediocre made to their properties and
people will pay it.
According to REIWA President
David Airey said, “Prices would only get higher as more people flooded into the
city because new homes were being built at a far slower pace”. The vacancy rate
was critically fallen to 3% and a shortfall of available rental properties. Right
now, strong demand for rental properties is increasing and the pressure is
coming from new arrivals in WA for employment. But still, Perth Rent will
remain soft for coming months because WA needs more opportunity and a price
decrease for sure. However, a window of opportunity was opening now and it
would last over the Christmas period before the most competitive time of year.
