Bentley is situated 8km south-east of the Perth CBD, and is a top pick from Perth for its combination of affordability, rental yield and growth potential.
As well as providing easy road and rail access to the Perth CBD and western beach suburbs, Bentley is home to the main campus of the Curtin University of Technology and a technology park. Access to the CBD is by rail or bus: the nearest train station is in neighbouring Welshpool, while bus and car access is via the Albany Highway. Access to Perth airport is also provided by the Leach Highway, which also runs westward to the coastal beaches.
The suburb has plentiful amenities, with a small shopping plaza on the corner of Albany Highway and Ashburton Street, and the lifestyle suburbs of Victoria Park and Kensington are also nearby. The presence of Bentley Hospital also provides further employment opportunities.
The suburb has a high proportion of students, thanks to the presence of Curtin University, Canning College and the Bentley campus of Swan TAFE. Many of these are international students, often from south-east Asia. Otherwise, the professions of residents are mixed, with both white-collar and blue-collar workers. The location is also favourable for fly-in, fly-out workers, due to the proximity to the airport. Bentley is also experiencing significant population growth, with SQM Research projecting a 4% annual increase over the next few years. This will inevitably put pressure on housing, and is likely to result in rental and capital growth.
Median unit prices are cheaper than neighbouring suburbs, and vacancy rates are very low.
