PropertyESP will be releasing a media statement this week after examining the Burswood apartment market from 2013-2017.
While overall the median price for apartments in this locale has grown by 11% from $700,000 to $780,000, it is the fact that this growth has occurred across all bedroom configurations that makes it even more interesting.
One bedroom increased its median price point by 6% in these four years, two bedroom 17%, three bedroom 14.5% and four bedroom 8%. This contrasts to other apartment nodes nearby.
Plus in this time frame only 16 properties resold and when you see property being held onto this tightly then there tends to be an indication of high satisfaction and a sense that more growth is anticipated.
The sales data also demonstrated Burswoods’ preference for larger apartments with 21% three bedroom apartments sold in the four years, in comparison to its counterpart in Rivervale which sold just 13%.
There are calls from some Councils that apartments in fact can dilute the premium brand of a suburb - but in this case it is quite clear that Burswood not only has established this solid reputation but also maintained it.
Plus with the Stadium finishing and the Burswood Peninsula Precinct Plan on the horizon, this suburb will only continue to grow in value.
If you like the way we look at data - then let us have a look at your suburb. Unlike Eastern States companies, PropertyESP gets into the nitty gritty and we look at the long term - not just the last quarter. Because the devil is in the detail!
