Queensland dominates rental performers report

19/09/2019
Forty-two Queensland towns have appeared on CoreLogic’s Top Rental Performers Report, which lists the top 100 best performing suburbs in Australia. 
  
The country town of Blackwater topped the list, with its average property achieving a rental yield of 11.7 per cent, against a median value of $122,165. 
  
Cairns suburbs, Woree and Manunda, were also high on the list, with rental yields of 10.8 per cent and 9.5 per cent respectively. 
  
Townsville’s West End made an appearance reporting a rental yield of 7.5 per cent, along with Springwood on Brisbane’s Southside, which reported the same result. 
  
There were plenty of Gold Coast suburbs too, with Southport, Labrador, Upper Coomera and Helensvale, all making the top 100 list. 
  
REIQ CEO, Antonia Mercorella, said the report demonstrated the resilience and steady growth of the Queensland rental market.
  
“Queensland continues to offer investors ample opportunity in terms of strong rental yields, consistent rental growth and vacancy rates,” she said. 
  
“Compared with Sydney and Melbourne, Queensland provides a strong return on investment over the medium and long term for investors.
  
“This, combined with an increasing rental population thanks to rapid local migration, makes Queensland an appealing option for investors.
  
“So it’s not surprising that Queensland dominated the list, representing almost half of the top 100 best performing suburbs in Australia.”
