Rents rising at the slowest pace on record

14 August 2015 Reporter

Rental growth has slumped to a record low of 0.9 per cent per annum in Australia’s capital cities, a new CoreLogic RP Data report has found.

“The sluggish pace of rental appreciation continues to be attributed to the ongoing boom in dwelling construction across Australia’s capital cities accompanied by record-high participation in the housing market from investors,” the report said.

Rents in Sydney rose over the year to July by 2.5 per cent to $593, while yields fell from 3.9 per cent to 3.3 per cent over the same period.

Hobart rents jumped 2.3 per cent to $339 while yields remained steady at 5.2 per cent.

Melbourne rents went up 2.1 per cent to $448 while yields dropped from 3.4 per cent to 3.1 per cent.

In Brisbane rents climbed by 1.1 per cent to $433 and yields dipped from 4.6 per cent to 4.5 per cent.

In Canberra rents rose modestly by 0.5 per cent to $486 while yields dipped from 4.2 per cent to 4.1 per cent.

Adelaide rents went up 0.3 per cent to $367 while yields fell from 4.4 per cent to 4.2 per cent.

In Perth rents fell 5.6 per cent to $468 and yields dropped from 4.2 per cent to 4.0 per cent.

In Darwin rents dropped 9.3 per cent to $549 and yields fell from 5.9 per cent to 5.6 per cent.
