Useful facts without opinions: Brisbane’s rental vacancy rate
If your investment property is empty there’s no such thing as a “healthy” rental vacancy rate. There’s no income and the bills still need paying. So despite the latest dip there’s probably little comfort for you in the Real Estate Institute’s stats. The graph tracks the percentage of rental homes currently empty by quarter and the REIQ says a 2.5 to 3.5% rental vacancy rate is considered balanced or healthy.
