Abstract: The Western Australia housing market has experienced significant price growth in recent years. While this can be seen as a boon for existing home-owners and investors, rapid price escalation has contributed to a fall in affordability for other home buyers, particularly first-home buyers. High population growth, driven by the resources boom, has increased demand for rental properties. The flow-on effects of higher house prices have led to low vacancy rates, which are starting to generate significant increases in rents in the private rental market.
