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.

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.

Perth recorded a vacancy rate of 1.6% and it showed variation across the city volatility. The vacancies rate along Perth ranged from Scarborough at 1.2% and probably increase at 1.5% for the three months of February while the Western Perth suburbs have a steady rate at 2.3%.
According to REIWA President David Airey, “The fall in the vacancy rate is not surprising as we have seen the volume of property listed for rental fall 24%, from 2900 homes to 2200 at the end of February.” In this case, March quarter is the strong seasonal demand for rental property. Rental accommodation vacancy rate is sinking because of the pressure was coming from the people to rent rather than to buy. One factor also for growing rental demand is from the new migrants arriving in Perth.

record positive rental growth. September 2011 was reported as the weaker
condition in the market and industrial property was the only sector that
reported strong condition. “Positive growth is set to resume next
year with expectations for capital values and rents over the next 1-2 years

sector; WA will lead the nations in terms of rental expectations.
In the residential sector, even though the property market
moved back, many are eager to become reliant on public housing. However,

subsidies for first-home buyers.
