Prospective homeowners and tenants are likely to find the suburb’s array of amenities and services appealing. There are public and private educational institutions that cater to children throughout the age groups, including Dawson Park Primary School, Darling Range Sports College and Heritage College Perth. Access to higher education is a little more limited. The nearest TAFE campus is North Metropolitan TAFE Midland, and the local university is Curtin University which has campuses in Midland and Bentley.

About the Armadale Property Market

As a suburb, Forrestfield experienced rapid growth in the number of residents from the 1950’s through to the 1970’s, with the population reaching a relatively stable level from the early 1990’s through to now. The median house price remains relatively affordable, which is likely due to its location on the outskirts of the city and status as being an older, more established suburb. Property prices do vary throughout Forrestfield, with larger blocks or those overlooking green spaces generally being more valuable than those close to Roe Highway or Tonkin Highway.

It is possible to obtain insights into the key demographics interested in Forrestfield by looking through the Australian census statistics at the people who already call it home. There is a relatively even spread of age groups and most either own their home outright or with a mortgage, suggesting that it’s an area that attracts long term residents. There is also a decent percentage of renters, which can be a good sign if you’re looking to purchase an investment rental property.

The majority of Forrestfield’s population resides in houses with three or more bedrooms, with less than 1% being in a flat or apartment. There’s a huge variation in block size through the suburb. Towards Roe High many are around 400m² to 750m² but as you move towards the centre and southern areas that starts to increase to around 900m². Bordering the green spaces on the eastern side of Forrestfield there are a limited number of larger properties with a few acres of land. Having a larger block is attractive if you’d like to keep subdividing an option as a possible investment strategy.
