Rent Gaps: The Key to Identifying Australia's Top Investment Suburbs

Sydney, Australia — September 14th, 2023

Henderson Advocacy is pleased to announce the release of its seminal property market report, "Rent Gaps: The Key to Identifying Australia's Top Investment Suburbs." The report offers an in- depth analysis of rent price gaps in critical Australian suburbs and includes investor scores to furnish a comprehensive guide for property investors.

Understanding Rent Gaps

Rent gaps are calculated as the percentage difference between the growth in rent prices and property values over a one-year period. A pronounced rent gap typically indicates a buoyant rental market. "Rent gaps serve as a useful indicator for investors, suggesting areas where rental markets are active and property investments could show promise," states Jack Henderson, Founder and Director of Henderson Advocacy.

Significant Findings

The research singles out a variety of Western Australian suburbs that excel in both rent gaps and investor scores, including noteworthy locales such as Parkwood, Stirling, and Albany. While Queensland and Victoria are also represented, their presence is comparatively subdued. "It's notable that Western Australia features prominently in the list, positioning the region as an emerging investment hotspot, particularly due to its significant rent gaps," observes Henderson.

Investor Score: An Added Dimension

To complement the rent gap data, Henderson Advocacy has introduced the Investor Score, a composite metric that evaluates multiple factors like rental yield, property affordability, and area vacancy rates. "The Investor Score provides an additional layer to our analysis, assisting investors in identifying not just areas with potential for immediate rental income but also those that promise long-term capital growth," elaborates Henderson.

Conclusion and Next Steps

The "Rent Gaps" report stands as an essential tool for property investors, offering a balanced approach to maximise both immediate rental income and long-term capital appreciation. "In Australia's ever-evolving property market, understanding rent gaps and investor scores is crucial. These metrics can guide investors toward more profitable opportunities," Henderson concludes.

Government urged to act on rental crisis

Everybody’s Home is urging the Albanese government to act on the rental crisis by listening to the people on the frontlinewho continue to bear an unaffordable, unfair housing market. In the final report from the inquiry into the worsening rental crisis, the majority of Senators have ignored evidence on the need to limit rent increases, protect renters’ rights, and reduce Australia’s reliance on private landlords. But Everybody’s Home spokesperson Maiy Azize says the government still has the power to act. “The housing system in Australia is broken and renters are paying the price. Unaffordable rents, insecure tenancies, inadequate rights -…

Mid year economic update must confront growing housing and homelessness crisis

The Federal Government must address the housing and homelessness crisis in its mid-year economic outlook as a new analysis from Homelessness Australia reveals a 6.2% increase in demand for already overwhelmed services from those impacted, amid declining funding. “Homelessness services are at a snapping point,” said Kate Colvin, chief executive of Homelessness Australia. “We were already stretched but now we are overwhelmed. Extraordinary times demand additional resources. Instead we are staring down the barrel of funding cuts.” Relentless rent increases and record low vacancy rates are driving more Australians to the brink of homelessness. Since July 2020, rents have soared…
