Why invest in Guildford real estate?
Sep 16, 2021
Guildford is one of Perth’s most unique and historically rich locations - it’s a fact that you’ll find reflected everywhere in the architecture of this quaint little town. Here, you’ll find classic heritage homes coexisting with modern design and cosy workers cottages next to sizable family homes. The eclectic mix of old and new is what draws many of Guildford’s residents to the area, along with the exciting array of cafes, vintage stores, heritage sites and natural attractions in the area.
For those with discerning tastes, it’s a great area to invest in. Homes around Guildford come with character, and often premium fixtures and design features making it the perfect place to purchase or build your forever home and it’s a suburb that shows strong growth! This year Guildford has experienced a 10.1% increase in average house prices (according to REIWA).
Land for sale in this well-established suburb is rare and hard to come by, but you’ll still find options available. With the median house price in Guildford now soaring to $765,000 (based on REIWA statistics in September 2021), it makes sense to build and Rosehill Waters offers one of Guildford’s best real estate opportunities for those looking to build new rather than buy established. This highly sought after state has become the most enquired about land subdivision in the area. With lots starting from a very affordable $295,000, it’s more than feasible to build a sizable home for well under the average cost of a home in Guildford.
Clever master planning means that buyers will benefit from a neighbourhood that’s been built with liveability both now and in the future in mind. Serpentine Park at the heart of the estate is one of Perth’s most creative new playgrounds and many of the estates have parkside views and easy access to public open spaces.
There are a range of lots sizes to choose from, and homebuyers have a great deal of flexibility available to them over the style of their home and their builder of choice. Many builders in the area strive for authenticity and offer home designs with heritage-style features, or designs that blend in beautifully with the natural surroundings of the area. Part of Guildford’s charm is its diversity, both in terms of people and housing.
Whether you’re looking for a unique A-frame style home, or chic, contemporary double storey home - you’ll find builders available to meet your needs.

Guildford is one of Perth’s most in-demand suburbs, and it’s easy to see why. Where else can you find so much right on your doorstep? It’s a place that ticks all the boxes; art, culture, nature. Building a home in Guildford means weekends spent sipping coffee on the cafe strip, picnicking by the Helena River or dipping your toes in the Swan, wandering through antique stores or heading up to the Swan Valley for dinner with friends.
It also offers easy access into the city (just 15 minutes away), Midland, Perth airport and Bassendean. Major transport links and a train station make it easy to get around, and there are plenty of excellent schools, shopping centres and dining options close by.
It’s an investment in a relaxed lifestyle, in a town that has grown and flourished for almost 200 years. Join an established community and start building the life you’ve always dreamed of in an area that will always be popular and continue to thrive.
