Selling points: Spearwood has a great feel to it. It has a large European community which flows on from Fremantle. Spearwood is also close to Port Coogee Marina and it is quite affordable considering how close it is to Fremantle and the local coast line. There is plenty of opportunity in the older part of Spearwood for investors as the local government has re-zoned the area and has allowed for subdivisions. Great rental returns also.
Most sought after properties: I would say the 3x1 old homes on subdividable large blocks would be in very high demand. Overpriced properties do take longer to sell but eventually they do sell. Homes are starting to move faster in this area.
