‘Subi’, as many locals affectionately call it, is one of Perth’s most densely populated areas, and is right on the western edge of the CBD.

It’s a trendy suburb with a strong appeal to students and young professionals as well as growing families.

The suburb’s mainstay, Rokeby Street, offers a broad range of shopping amenities, while Perth’s iconic Kings Park directly borders Subiaco to the southeast.

Surprisingly, there remain more detached houses than apartments in Subiaco (34%), though this is expected to change as Perth embraces high-density living.

But being fairly built up already, the pace of high development should be kept in check.

While Subiaco’s median house values fell by 1% over the past 12 months, this drop is relatively small compared to Perth’s broader price performance.

OnTheHouse.com.au remains bullish about Subiaco’s prospects, forecasting 6% growth each year over the next eight years for houses, which would take the median value to $2,008,000.
