WA MADE LOUNGE
Can you guess where the least
affordable home market is? No, it’s
not in Australia, despite what the
media says. Not by a long shot. In fact,
according to an analysis of real estate and
wages, it’s Mumbai. With the average
Indian needing to work for three centuries
to pay for a luxury home, for locals it’s the
least affordable in the world.
Luckily, in Australia, owning your dream home is well within
reach. Here we get bang for our buck, with a bevvy of excellent
architects, builders, designers, suppliers, interiors experts and
tradespeople to conjure up immaculate abodes and fill our dream
spaces. Browse Scoop’s coverage of some of the stand-out companies
helping to build homes in WA from p152 – if you’re building or
renovating they will be your guide to success.
With the housing market currently cooling off, Australians are
holding on to their homes. New figures show owners are staying put
for an average of nine years, which indicates we’re working diligently
at beautifying and perfecting our personal space from the get-go. This
Scoop Homes Annual gives you the inspiration to tweak with the trends
or start from scratch on your new home design, with our international
inspiration on p64 and the more practical (but equally breathtaking)
selection of national award entrants on p98.
On p136 we touch on the all-important issue of sustainable design.
While it used to be considered a separate or optional consideration
when designing a home, it’s now an intrinsic part of a house – like a
window or door. Why aim for your house to last 25 years when those
built 100 years ago are still functioning well, despite being built with
fewer resources and little technology? The focus in 2012/13 is to build
homes that will stand the test of time thanks to quality design and
some ingenious sustainable elements.
Enjoying all our wonderful Australian lifestyle has to offer starts
at home. Raising the bar is way forward in WA, where the industry
continues to turn out quality residences we’re proud to call our own.
