Rate Cuts Herald Lower Rents for Tenants

This comes as a welcome relief to many renters struggling to keep up with the mounting rental prices. As the Reserve Bank of Australia has begun to slash interest rates, relieving many Landlords’ mortgages, rental costs have similarly begun to fall.

As APM Senior Economist Liam O’Hara predicts “There maybe further moderation in median asking rents for the remainder of the year as the possibility of a global recession feeds into the Australian economy.”

Lower Rents

In some Australian states, such as Perth, rental prices have decreased this quarter dropping by 6%, from an average of $350 to $330 a week. For those straining under the pressure of debts and living costs, the chance to ease housing costs offers a financial reprieve.

Similarly, the frantic need for housing has diminished, with O’Hara describing “The demand to raise rents for both houses and units has softened, which should provide some relief to renters”.
