Mandurah in WA's top 10 most-searched real estate destinations

Mandurah is one of Western Australia's most-searched real estate destinations, according to a leading industry body.

The Real Estate Institute of WA (REIWA) has revealed its top 10 searched suburbs for the last 12 months, with Mandurah coming eighth on the list.

REIWA president Damian Collins said nine of the 10 suburbs on the list were in the Perth region, with Denmark the only regional suburb to make the list. 

“Hillarys was the most popular suburb for West Australians searching for property, taking out first spot on the list, followed by Denmark, Woodvale, Duncraig and Canning Vale," he said.

“Overall, it’s quite an eclectic list of suburbs, with a good supply from both north and south of the river and quite varied in terms of population levels.

"While it’s no surprise a suburb like Canning Vale has trended highly, given it’s one of WA’s biggest suburbs, it’s interesting to note that six of the 10 suburbs have fewer than 10,000 people residing in the area."

The biggest trend in terms of lifestyle appears to be the push towards coastal suburbs, with six of the 10 top searched suburbs, including Mandurah, well-known for their proximity to WA’s great beaches. 

The report also confirmed that central Mandurah's median house price was $265,000 and that it has a population of 7837.
