"Nice place to visit"

Mandurah's a nice little area. It's been developing a lot over the years, and it's value has gone up as a result. Bit too far from the city unfortunetely.

"Best Location in Mandurah - same house in Perth with similar water views would cost a buyer twice as expense"

Mandurah, almost a suburb of Perth with the new opening of the freeway south, township has good vision for the future growth of the region. Mandurah offers a relaxed life style with all water activities available, but still remains close enough to the Perth CBD in need for those requiring with business access.

Township was one of the fastest growth areas in the 2007, but has eased back as a result of the GFC, however with the continued urban sprawl between coastal regions and the Perth CBD properties are still far more affordable for the same "like type" properties with views in Perth.

"Beautiful place but overpriced."

Outside Perth, Mandurah is the largest city in WA and is recognized as one of the fastest growing as well. Situated on the Peel-Harvey Estuary 72 kms from Perth, Mandurah was once nothing more than a holiday area. Mandurah is a pretty town with the foreshore being home to pelicans, shags, dolphins and other marine life. One of the main industries in the area is construction and many of the workers are trades people. Tourism is also big here and the hospitality industry employs many people. The city has some great waterways and beaches with fishing and boating, swimming and other water sports extremely popular. Mandurah has excellent shopping facilities with shops to cater for all your needs. There is a good selection of restaurants and fast food outlets as well as hotels and clubs offering good entertainment. Sport is well catered for with many venues for different sports and activities. There are some excellent medical centres, hospital and allied health professionals. Mandurah is with easy access to via the motorway. Unfortunately all this comes at a price and Mandurah home and rental prices are now making it one of the least affordable places in WA to settle.

HallsHead "Unfortunately all this comes at a price and Mandurah home and rental prices are now making it one of the least affordable places in WA to settle." I do not agree with your opinion that Mandurah is overpriced, I indeed believe it is quite under valued. In the Mandurah area, you are able to purchase a 4x2 home in a nice area (such as Halls Head, Erskine) for under $350,000. 3x1 homes are able to be purchased for even less with occasional 3x1 homes in Halls Head selling for less than $300,000. Find that value in Perth or any other similar location in Australia! The only overpriced properties in Mandurah are the top end, over $850,000 with many of the canal properties being overpriced by hundreds of thousands, as with Marina properties (in the Mandurah Ocean Marina development). With rental property prices, you are able to rent a home from about $250 p/w. Perth rental prices for a similar property are at least $100 extra p/w! Rent a home in Mandurah or a unit in a terrible area in Perth for the same price? Decision is yours.

That is just my opinion.

"Hold on Mandurah, Perth is coming to get you."

Mandurah is coastal city 72kms south of Perth. The growth rate in Mandurah during 2008 was 5.9%. Now that is fast! What has been happening that has certainly made Mandurah a town to go to, is the fact that there has been some very clever planning to make this city one that retains its atmosphere, enjoys the lifestyle, but keeps on offering more.

In the planning of Mandurah a lot of emphasis has been put on water activities and investments. There is now a new world class marina and several canal systems which allow access to the sea. These systems are always a big attraction for the water loving Australian.

Mandurah seems to offer it all: recreation boating, swimming, fishing, water skiing, crabbing; all being supported with various annual events.

Because it is such close proximity to Perth one would have to wonder when the two will meet. Perth has, in latter years, grown at a rapid rate as well.

Because it is only 72kms to Perth, even if you could not get employment in Mandurah, it is not too far to travel to Perth. It all seems the idyllic lifestyle.
