  • Rental yields for a Brisbane apartment remain the strongest of the east coast capitals at 5%, well ahead of the national average 3.7%.

Core Logic’s Director of Research, Tim Lawless: “Although new listings are ramping up, the trend in total active listings remains extremely low, continuing to reflect the rapid rate of absorption seen amidst high buyer demand. Nationally, total advertised supply levels are -28.1% below the five-year average and every capital city is recording a below average amount of advertised supply.”
