In spite of how it feels sometimes, the housing market isn’t all doom and gloom – especially if you’re in WA. And according to the most recent statistics, Perth had a median house price of $530,000, making us the cheapest capital city in Australia.

Leading the charge for highest median house prices is unsurprisingly Sydney, with a median house price coming in at a whopping $1.55 million. At an annual growth rate of five percent, it’s predicted it will take 23 years for Perth’s median house price to reach Sydney’s.

So what could the Sydney median price get you in Perth? Well, with the help of reiwa.com.au, we’ve found an array of homes around Perth that you can get for the same price as a teeny tiny Surry Hills terrace:
