Western Australia suburbs Collie, Withers and Manjimup are the region's most affordable suburbs according to REIWA's latest 10 most affordable suburbs list.

REIWA President Hayden Groves said there is an abundance of options available to buyers "down south".

"Most notable, is the exceptional lifestyle opportunities on offer, which are not readily available at these prices in the metro area," he said.

“For instance, the median house prices of the 10 suburbs on the list range between $205,000 to $335,000, which is well below the Perth metro median house price of $525,000."

REIWA Councillor Joe White, based in Dunsborough said many of the 10 suburbs on the list were ‘hidden gems’ he expected to grow in popularity over the coming years.

“Withers and Usher for example, ranked two and six on the list respectively, are both located on the coast," he said.

“West Australians love to live on the coast, to be able to buy a property that close to the beach for $300,000 or less is simply unheard of in the city.

“I suspect in the coming years Withers and Usher will grow in popularity as buyers begin to discover the full extent of their superb geographic locations.

“With their proximity to the Bunbury CBD and sporting facilities, infill re-development will change the perception of these locations as the benefits of this re- development radiate out from the town centre.

“That being said, the South West’s non-coastal regional areas are fantastic places to live too.

“And if you are living on limited means, there is probably no better place to make your dollars stretch than in towns in the South West of WA,” Mr White said.
