Values in surrounding suburbs may have stagnated of late, but East Victoria Park in WA has experienced steady growth over the past five yearsFull summary Values in surrounding suburbs may have stagnated of late,but East Victoria Park in WA has experienced steady growthover the past five years, says Shane Vasile, licensee/director of Acton Victoria Park.

Just 4km from the Perth CBD, with good public transport links and proximity to Swan River and Perth’s largest university, East Victoria Park is a suburb boasting a soughtafter location and solid infrastructure. But Shane says it’s the gentrification of this inner-city suburb that has been the real drawcard for buyers.

“The amazing new high street cafe strip and restaurants have attracted people to the area,” says Vasile.

“There’s a much younger demographic now moving in, and with a lot of new apartments and mixed housing it’s still quite affordable. They want to live here; it’s somewhere that’s desirable to be.”

Demand in the neighbourhood is consistent, with a balanced mix of investors and owner-occupiers competing to get into the market.

“We’ve had a bit of a downturn across the board here, but East Victoria Park is the exception. It’s thriving,” Shane explains.

He adds that most of the blocks are subdividable, and if investors keep the older-style, 1920s workers’ cottages on the front, they then also have the option to build a new home at the rear, “which adds value”.Close
