Ac­cord­ing to Morena Bam­ber of Stocker Pre­ston real es­tate, the me­dian house price is around $470,000–$480,000. “The me­dian is a bit skewed as the vol­ume of our sales are at the lower end,” she says. ‘Older’ houses are those built in the 1960s or 1970s. “We don’t have any his­toric hous­ing here; Mar­garet River is a very young place, as the first vines were planted in the 1960s and that’s when it started to de­velop. “As you go out into more ex­clu­sive ar­eas there are a lot of houses at the top end of the mar­ket — from $700,000 to $900,000 — and the beach area is a whole mar­ket in it­self.”
