Choosing the Hero's Path: Owning vs. Renting in Perth 

Are you ready to embark on the exciting journey of building your first home in Perth?

We spoke to Perth’s own First Home Owners Centre to discuss why now is the best time to own your first home. So, fasten your seatbelts and get ready for a ride as exhilarating as your favourite movie marathon on a rainy Sunday.


The Perth Rent Battle: A Shocking Turn of Events

Perth's home seekers, brace yourselves for a plot twist that wouldn't be out of place in your favourite binge-worthy TV shows. The Real Estate Institute of Western Australia (REIWA) has recently revealed that the median rent in Perth has surged to an astonishing $585 per week! To put things in perspective, just last September 2020, it was a mere $380 per week. That's a jaw-dropping increase of approximately 54%! It's like going from "Yippee ki-yay" to "I've got a bad feeling about this."

Now, let's dive into the real story …


Why should you swap your renter's cape for the hero's cape of homeownership?

  1. Becoming a Financial Superhero: Building your first home is like leveling up in your favourite video game, accumulating power-ups as you go along.
  2. Crafting Your Dream World: With your own home, you're no longer living in someone else's script. You become the director, casting agent, and star of your own blockbuster.
  3. The Hero's Reward: Owning your first home is an achievement worthy of the big screen. It's that final scene where the hero prevails, and the audience erupts in applause.
  4. Predictable Adventures: Unlike rent, your mortgage payments won't throw in surprise plot twists. They're as reliable as a cult classic movie marathon.
