Improving sentiment to drive property rebound

Perth's median house price is on the verge of upswing in 2017, as a stabilising labour market and surging commodity prices drive marked improvements in consumer sentiment.

A panel of property experts today flagged stronger fortunes for Perth’s residential market in 2017, at the latest instalment of Business News’ Success & Leadership series.

Real Estate Institute of Western Australia president Hayden Groves said 2016 was among the most challenging years on record for Perth property, with the total number of transactions over the year coming in around 31,000 - less than half of the 70,000-odd transactions that occurred during the last peak of activity in 2006.
