Starting a family of your own is one of life’s proudest moments. It can also lead you to the inevitable question – where is the best place to grow together?
Choosing the right suburb is somewhat of a balancing act. On one hand, you want to branch out to a safe, leafy locale surrounded by parklands and good schools. On the other hand, as a young couple you still love that cosmopolitan lifestyle and aspire to a desirable suburb that’s in touch with the bright city lights. And of course, you want to make sure you make a wise property investment that sets you and your family up for the years ahead.
When it comes to property investments in Perth that tick all the right boxes for families, all signs point to Canning Vale. Those who grew up in or around this often overlooked suburb will know Canning Vale is a cultural playground with established streets, shady parks and plentiful shopping options. And with a population of over 23,000, it’s a healthy suburb in its prime.
Here’s why you should look at investing in Canning Vale.
Canning Vale is a suburb families aspire to
The online property guru’s at Realestate.com.aut recently declared families looking to live a little further from the city are drawn to ‘realistic’ aspirational suburbs - those middle to upper class areas that, while not seen as premium, strike a nice balance from both a lifestyle and investment perspective. Unsurprisingly, household names like Victoria Park, Bayswater, Maylands, Mount Lawley, South Perth and Como led the way with most online searches. Yet sneaking into the top ten was Canning Vale. This is backed up even more so by recent REIWA research, which from January 1 to April 21 2015 recorded a huge 746,973 unique searches for real estate in Canning Vale.
Canning Vale has a history of growth
With a median sale price of $557,000, Canning Vale is performing surprisingly well in a difficult property market. Although with growth recorded for 13 of the last 18 years, perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised. The suburb’s growth compared favourably to the Perth Metro Region as a whole, trending up (+0.8%) when other suburbs were collectively trending down (-1.4%).
Canning Vale has great neighbourhoods
People often say the right place to raise a family just ‘feels right’, with well kept front yards, kids riding bikes along shady streets and friendly corner stores. But sometimes the numbers paint a picture of your future neighbours so clearly that they’re too hard to ignore. Data shows 51.9% of Canning Vale residents are couples with children, mostly aged between 35 and 39 years of age, who hold stable jobs with good incomes (63% full time workers, 36% part time). This may explain why 90.4% have built houses, mostly 4 bedroom, with units a rarity. While rentals pull in a healthy average of $400 perweek, they’re few and far between. This suggests families continue to see Canning Vale as the perfect place to grow long-term. And with 38.5% of residents speaking a language other than English, the appeal of this cultural melting pot stretches far and wide.
Canning Vale has great shopping and schools
Located a comfortable distance from the CBD’s hustle and bustle, Canning Vale offers space to grow without foregoing good shopping and schools. You’ll have Livingston Marketplace
, The Vale Shopping Centre and Canning Vale Markets
just five minutes away for all your essentials, while Carousel’
s newly opened $350 million retail, dining and entertainment destination is just 12 minutes drive north. Thinking long-term, you won’t have to move for the foreseeable future with great schools like Canning Vale Primary School, St Emilie’s Catholic Primary School and Summer Pines Early Learning Centre all close by and both Curtin University and Murdoch University within 12km.
