Western Australia’s booming population  – A trend that will continue for decades to come, data suggests.

ABS projections say Western Australia’s population will increase from 2.2 million today to around 4.5 million in the next 40 years. 

This is creating an environment where demand for new housing is outstripping supply by massive levels, creating a huge opportunity for investors to generate new homes and units – in other words, Property Developers in Perth and Western Australia stand to get rich thanks to the booming population.

Western Australia’s Housing Crisis : More People Than Homes To Live in

EXPONENTIAL: Western Australia is going to suffer a shortfall of nearly 120,000 homes by the end of this decade. We’re simply not building enough to keep up with population demands. The below chart says it all (just look at the black line):

Perth new home crisis. More units and houses needed!

The most critical areas in need of more units and houses:

Joondalup (6272), Rockingham (4524), Melville (4377) Swan (4374).

Areas in most need - Growing pains in WA.

Put simply, those who take the opportunity now to develop property in Perth and Western Australia are going to make a bucket load.

Taking the opportunity to buy and build on land, either old properties that are knocked down to make way for units, house-behind-house – or new land made available across Western Australia, is going to be a hot investment indeed.

With all the data suggesting our population will continue to grow at pace, and the shortfall in new homes and units, investors are set for a big and ongoing pay day. Passive income, capital growth, tax breaks and equity to create new investments. 

The fact is: Land values, house values and rental values are all going to move higher in the medium to longer term. 

So, with this in mind – How can you capitalise ?

A company like Ventura iD – Dedicated to building high-quality, low cost and efficient property development builds  – is exactly where WA residential property investors, and ‘mum and dad’s’ are turning to build significant wealth from property.

In fact, in just 6 years, Ventura iD has moved from an upstart residential property development company to the 6th biggest builder in Western Australia, outright. A lot of people are already making a lot of money from property development. It’s a story not told by the mainstream media.
