The release today of the monthly CoreLogic RP Data Rent Review results for February confirm that over the coming months rental rates could begin to fall on an annual basis due to additional new rental supply entering the market.
According to research analyst Cameron Kusher, “With construction activity set to peak over the next 24 months, and with many new properties still to settle, there is a real possibility that rental rates will fall over the coming months.
“Based on our expectations, landlords have little scope to lift rental rates while for renters, it potentially means more surety in securing accommodation and the potential to upgrade into a higher level of accommodation for a similar cost.”
“The cause of this current slowdown in rental growth is falling wages, excess rental supply in certain areas and lower rates of population growth and population mobility impacting on demand for rental accommodation,”
Mr Kusher said.
