Perth property prices are being predicted to grow faster than most markets across Australia, according to the latest Property Price Forecasts from Domain.

The report has predicted while Perth house prices will fall about 5% in 2018, resulting in a median house price of $535,000.

They will, however, record growth of 5% in 2019 and 3% in 2020.

Domain economist Trent Wiltshire said the positive outlook was due to "fundamentals like the mining sector looking a little bit better, new mines are being built, there is more mining investment going on and job prospects are looking better in WA".

Perth unit prices are expected to fall by about 6% in 2018, and then prices are expected to grow by about 2% in 2019 and 2020.

"The state Treasury is forecasting economic growth to be a lot higher than it has been in the past few years and then a big driver for house prices is population growth," Wiltshire said.

"Not all signs are positive, with home-loan approvals continuing to trend downwards, market sentiment still weak and tighter lending conditions weighing on prices."
