What happened last week in Perth Real Estate?

REIWA has just released some statistics from last week's property sales in Perth, showing a drop in sales from last year and an average period on the market of 63 days before a property is sold. The most popular suburbs which replaced For Sale signs last week were Morley, Como, Canning Vale, Thornlie, Wanneroo and Scarborough. The market continues to struggle with an increase in houses on the market. Personally, it hasn't encouraged me yet to actively look for my first home. For now, I am sitting on the sidelines until there are more positive signs for buyers.

The benefit of a property that has been on the market for more than 2 months preferably 3 is that you can make offers to sellers for much less than what they are asking because in some cases not all but some sellers are desperate to sell for what ever reason.

I'm sure the market will pick up again, good luck finding your first home.
