Having so much supply for houses make the market difficult to cope up. When the supply is too high and population growth slowdown; the conditions result a big drop in demand.

Perth is one of the boom populations because of the job opportunities. Many migrants trying their luck in Perth in which the cause of population increase. Because of the booming population, rental tightened and cause of housing crisis. Would it affect the median house rent?

According to the prediction of APM Economist Andrew Wilson, “By the end of the year, WA’s rapidly growing population will make Perth more expensive for renters than Sydney, where the median rent for homes is $500 a week. Last year, Perth had the highest rental growth of all capital cities and based on the forecast, more people are coming in WA every week that makes Perth’s median house rent increase. Population will continue growing but the home built annually is not sufficient to supply the demand.

by joy.manginsay 14. May 2012 20:56

Based from the Real Estate Institute of WA (REIWA), Perth rental listings fell by 500 in just a week last month. The rental vacancy rate is now 2.3% compared to 2.8% last December 2011. However, despite the falling number of rental properties, the median rental price is still the same at $380 per week for a unit and $240 per week for a house.

According to REIWA President David Airey, “January was traditionally the busiest period for tenancy changes because more people moved in between school years and university students sought new accommodation.” Because of the unnaturally busier period of high demand, it really puts a lot of pressure in the rental market. It is a just a lack of rental properties and next few months, we still believe and anticipating a normalized market and rent price will be flattened.

Rental accommodation vacancy rate is sinking because of the pressure was coming from the people to rent rather than to buy.
