Suburbs with highest rental yields

By |

February figures from RP Data show that rental yield of 20% is possible in one Sunshine Coast suburb, while numerous other suburbs in areas such as Townsville, Rockhampton and Merredin have yields exceeding 10%. That’s enough yield for a property to more than pay for itself

    I live in Ultimo, and I am wondering if the rental yield and median is distorted by the Unilodge. They sell for about $150k, and rent out for up to $350 per studio. However, this is not necessarily an accurate reflection of unit/terrace house returns.

    Yes, the Unilodge figures would be included in the data. Same as retirement homes etc are included and distort the figures... But I guess it does give an "all encompassing" figure for the suburb!

    I notice that there are no Darwin suburbs. I would imagine with the high demand and low supply there that they would have a high yield
