The Perth property market is quietly recovering with state government spending big on infrastructure, including rail projects and shopping centres having an upward impact on Perth property prices.

Sales records since 2018 are evidence of life coming back to the state after the end of the mining boom. Garden City in Booragoon is one postcode to watch, as is the waterfront development at Bunbury.
