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

With interest rates at their lowest for more than 50 years, there are some great rates available. The best thing to do is to compare rates from all the lenders. Let us help take the leg work out of doing this - Compare Home Loans now

    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
