Perth tipped for fastest growth

Perth leapfrogged Gladstone as the most popular city for capital growth over the coming 12 months, as nominated by property experts in an inaugural quarterly survey.

Around 300 panelists, principally estate agents, property owners and investors, took part in National Australia Bank’s March 2013 Residential Property Survey

Property experts predict capital city prices to grow 2.2 per cent over the coming 12 months, where Western Australia is expected to lead the pack with a rise of 3.8 per cent. 

Meanwhile, Victoria and New South Wales are also predicted to climb 2.4 per cent and 2.2 per cent respectively.

Martin Bregozzo, senior property manager and property economist at BIS Shrapnel, told Smart Property Investment that housing shortgage and increasing population are among numerous strong drivers underpinning Perth’s market.

BIS Shrapnel forecasts the stock deficiency for WA to grow from an estimated 14,100 dwellings in 2012 to 25,000 in 2013 before peaking at 34,000 dwellings in 2015, he said, where Perth accounts for 62 per cent of the deficiency.
