The Property Exchange’s Ingrid Bradshaw said the diversity and range of housing available made Leederville popular, with something for everyone.
“Buyers love the close proximity to the CBD, easy access to train, freeway and tunnel,” she said.
“Leederville has great infrastructure and amenities providing a lifestyle location, and of course the vibrant Oxford Street cafe and shopping strip is a huge attraction to buyers.
“The walkability of the suburb to the amenities makes it very attractive.”
Mrs Bradshaw said there was a mix of buyers attracted to Leederville, including empty nesters/downsizers, first-home buyers, investors, families and developers.

“Currently in demand are renovated properties from $800,000 to $1.2 million and townhouses with generous accommodation between $650,000 – $800,000.”
