Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale

Housing tenure

In the Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale, 81% of households were purchasing or fully owned their home, 13.2% were renting privately, and 0.5% were in social housing in 2011.

The Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale's Housing Tenure data provides insights into its socio-economic status as well as the role it plays in the housing market. For example, a high concentration of private renters may indicate a transient area attractive to young singles and couples, while a concentration of home owners indicates a more settled area with mature families and empty-nesters (Household Summary). Tenure can also reflect built form (Dwelling Type), with a significantly higher share of renters in high density housing and a substantially larger proportion of home-owners in separate houses, although this is not always the case.

In conjunction with other socio-economic status indicators in the Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale, Tenure data is useful for analysing housing markets, housing affordability and identifying public housing areas.

Derived from the Census questions:

'Is this dwelling (owned outright, owned with a mortgage etc.)', and 'If this dwelling is being rented, who is it rented from?'
