The State Government has released a report summary of its review into the impacts of short-term rentals and the REIQ believes it’s ‘entirely unsurprising’. The report concludes that short-term rentals were most prevalent in high-tourism coastal areas, and that short-term rentals have a limited impact on rental affordability. Importantly, the REIQ notes that Deputy Premier Steven Miles confirmed, “The review found no clear alignment between the suburbs with the highest rent increases and the percentage of dwellings devoted to short-term rental. Instead, dwelling stocks emerged as the significant contributor to explaining rental prices.” The report reiterates what we’ve always known – that rental supply is the source of the rental crisis and materially impacts rental affordability.
