South Brisbane rental market update: Some positive signs for landlords
During the first quarter of the year our Property Managers negotiate a huge number of lease renewals and there’s some positive signs for our landlord clients. The market is still competitive and tenants are very sensitive to any poor presentation or maintenance issues in a rental home. But we’re now achieving rent increases for many of our clients. Usually these are a couple of percent only and in many cases it’s simply a return to pre-oversupply days.
For landlords who’ve endured sliding rents in past years however, it’s a growing light at the end of a long tunnel! This postcode (including the West End/South Brisbane peninsula) has survived a tsunami of supply of new apartments, with a 40% increase in the rental pool over just the past two years. It’s an extraordinary sign of interest from tenants that we can report examples of small rent increases with such a fast market turnaround.
