Hot Suburbs: Buying or Leasing an Office in Perth

Buying or leasing an office in Perth has many benefits for the business and property owner alike. The Perth commercial real estate market has a wide range of office space available to suit any company, from high-rise office towers to prime-position, easy to access establishments.

Finding the perfect office in Perth

The Perth office market started the year off strong after the office vacancy rate reduced to just 15% in February, which was the lowest in seven years (PVAWA). Since then, the vacancy rate has increased slightly to 15.8%. More stock on show means an improved opportunity for businesses to find the perfect office to rent or buy.

Acquiring a premium commercial office space in a great location isn’t as hard as you might think. Given the direct and relatively easy access to important commercial areas in Perth, any office listing within 15 minutes of the CBD is highly sought after. Unlike other capital cities along the east coast, Perth offices near the CBD are surprisingly affordable and provide excellent growth opportunities.

With demand on the upward trend, and limited new developments over the coming years, we may be seeing a vacancy rate as low as 10% by late 2025. For these reasons, now is the ideal time to acquire an office in Perth.
