Rent rise deters tenants

Weekly rent rises are driving tenants away from Sydney rental properties according to Exchange property management expert, Ian Comyns.

Comyns has found that landlords who continue to raise weekly rents for their property are discouraging tenants who are concerned about the price they are spending on rental accommodation each week.

“An interesting phenomenon is that we’re getting fewer applications per property than we did three or four years ago,” Comyns said.

“You would expect that we’d be getting the same percentage of applications but we’re not, even though we’ve seen just as many people come to the inspections over the past few weeks as we did three or four years ago.”

Recent figures from the Australian Property Monitors reveal that Sydney tenants are now paying an average rent of $505 a week to rent a house, compared to the national average of $411 per week.

“If the properties where lots of people come through – but don’t apply – were priced $20, $30 or $50 less, would we have more applications?

Of course we would. So yes, it’s absolutely about price,” Comyns said.

The latest property results released by the NAB this week show that Sydney’s housing shortage, falling interest rates and a lower unemployment rate are the main factors driving average rents higher nationwide.

“Rental growth is accelerating and forward expectations have been revised up,” the NAB reports.

Demand for rental properties is also predicted to strengthen over the next two years, with rents tipped to rise by a further 4.6% according to the NAB survey.

Comyns reminds property investors that rental price increases are also linked to the health of the building industry and real estate sales performance, among many other factors.

“The danger when you hear stories like this is to make sweeping assumptions and generalisations,” Comyns said.

“When the sales market shrinks and there are fewer properties on the market for sale, it obviously has a flow on effect onto the rental market,” Comyns said.

Data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics shows that average housing prices have fallen by 4.8% in all eight capital cities since December 2010.
