Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Residential -

THE cheap­est sub­urb when Com­mu­nity News­pa­per Group formed, Red­cliffe has lost the ti­tle to Me­d­ina and is now in 83rd po­si­tion out of about 280 sub­urbs.

“Over the past 30 years, Red­cliffe would have greatly ben­e­fited from Perth’s im­mense ur­ban sprawl, as many more new hous­ing es­tates have since been cre­ated on the city’s ur­ban fringe to cater for the in­creased pop­u­la­tion,” Mo­men­tum Wealth man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Damian Collins said.

“Gen­er­ally, there is higher de­mand for sub­urbs that are closer to the cen­tral busi­ness dis­trict.

“Red­cliffe is lo­cated just 10km from the Perth CBD; this is com­pared to Me­d­ina, which is 40km away.

“Red­cliffe has also ben­e­fited from in­fra­struc­ture up­grades in the area, which make the sub­urb more ac­ces­si­ble and de­sir­able to live in.

“While Red­cliffe’s close prox­im­ity to the air­port might be off-putting for some, oth­ers, par­tic­u­larly fly-in, fly­out work­ers, view it as a con­ve­nient lo­ca­tion to live.”
