Offering similar sized properties in the same region of Perth, certain figures indicate that buyers may be noticing the relative affordability of Koondoola within the region. Auction clearance rates are at 100%, indicating that properties that come into the market are well sought after. Vacancy rates are exceptionally tight at 0.25%, and properties in the area are well held onto – just 0.53% of the properties within the suburb are up for sale.
The favourable supply and demand situation aside, the area offers advantages that extent far beyond just being next door to less affordable neighbours. The CBD is easily accessible and the area is home to a mixture of modern and older houses – the latter set onto fairly larger blocks.

He estimates property values to double over the next five years. “Koondoola is a fantastic entry point to get into the real estate market,” he says.
