Reclaiming residential: How Perth is going bill-free, mixing up our communities and helping the homeless
The face of suburban residential living is likely to change over the next decade.

There’s a white-collar-led housing recovery in the western suburbs of Perth, according to REA Group Economist Nerida Conisbee. When it comes to trends in Perth’s property market, that is just the tip of the iceberg.

Recently we have experienced an outpouring of concern about CBD homelessness and housing affordability from our community, witnessed controversy over Blackburne Property Group’s three-building development at the top of Rokeby Road in Subiaco and pondered  how to make our homes and workplaces more sustainable against a backdrop of agitation about the impact of climate change.
