Woodlands is commonly known as being a family suburb, which is understandable due to the great parks and schools available, including Hale and Chuchlands Senior High School. It’s also known for its older demographic population, and the nearby Westfield Innaloo is undergoing a $450 million redevelopment.
However, with close proximity to Perth City, Scarborough beach and Leederville, Woodlands also becomes a student’s dream! It’s located only 12km to the University of Western Australia, which is considered the top university in the state for many fields, and has great access to public transport.
This ideal location between city and beach does means that the housing prices, whether it be for renting or buying, are ultimately higher than other places in Perth. However, the current market decline in Perth means that house prices are the most affordable they’ve been in years. It is also within close proximity to IKEA and Spudshed for anyone looking to minimise living costs.
The opportunity to buy real estate in Woodlands doesn’t come around often, with locals claiming it is not the type of place you ever leave, so now is the time to buy! Whether you are a family with children, a retired couple looking to relocate or a student looking to experience the ultimate student life, Woodlands is the suburb for you.
