Cost Of Living
The cost of living in Western Australia can be very reasonable if you research the first areas you are interested in. Living in the State’s capital, Perth, will likely have higher costs than other State regions. Still, it is also worth remembering that those in the mining and construction industries receive excellent wages, which can drive the cost of living in areas near these sites up.
Buying or renting a property
In Western Australia, you can buy a property under a process of offer and acceptance. You can also purchase the property by auction. The median purchase price for property in the Perth metropolitan area was $516 000* in June 2018, with the median rent for a three-bedroom house around $335* a week.
