Additionally, this report identified the average hold period of a property across the country was nine years.


Rental market performance in June 2022


With rental markets tightening even further, and the widespread demand for rentals increasing, new data shows that more Australians are setting their sights on apartment markets. This is positive news for property investors of units.


In the last 12 months, the number of potential renters per unit rental listing rose by 71% in Brisbane, 54% in Sydney, and 62% in Melbourne. Rental demand also continues to increase, across the board, for house dwellings.


With that, the price of rentals is continuing to rise with increasing interest rates. Interest rates have already risen twice in the last two months. They’re expected to continue doing so throughout the rest of the year. Rental prices will continue to see movement to keep up with repayments from homeowners.


Where NSW and VIC residents flocked to in 2021


Earlier this week the ABS released the statistics from the 2021 Census. This data has shown where people who left Australian Southern States migrated to last year. In the New South Wales and Victorian COVID exodus, 54,700 people from Victoria and New South Wales moved. Most of them moved up towards Queensland. Western Australia also welcomed a portion of these people.


In the last few years, Queensland has proven to boast greater lifestyle benefits for interstate migrants. Combined with infrastructure and employment opportunities, more people are choosing to make the Sunshine State their permanent place of residence. This has had significant impacts on the Queensland property market.
