In Margaret River there has been a history of lower than average prices and demand, offering opportunities for investors or first home owners, especially in the context of the growth in working from home. In this area of average incomes, there is a mix of housing size and quality. While this may present buying opportunities, growth may be constrained. As buyers begin to examine Margaret River due to other areas being out of the price range and the trend to working from home, "gentrification" may incease price growth. The high percentage of professional people in Margaret River classifies the area as "gentrified". This implies high demand for quality housing, generally of larger than average size. Price growth is ensured even where the state affordability index is negatively impacting other areas. High density population in Margaret River requires consistent turnover in housing ensuring constant demand. Housing styles may be a mix of low, medium, and high density, providing choice for well-financed buyers and value growth over time. Lower than average industry presence in Margaret River we believe will be less of a negative impact than it has in the past. Post-COVID and the growth in working from home has lessened the demand for local employment options. This may make Margaret River a better buying opportunity than it may have been in the past.
