Gold Coast vacancy rate plummets

By Staff Reporter

The Gold Coast’s rental market is experiencing its lowest rate of vacancy in more than a decade, according to property analyst Paul Broad.

In his recent Gold Coast market overview report, Mr Broad found the city’s residential vacancy rate had more than halved during the past two years, down from 5.5 per cent to 2.3 per cent, putting the region back on yield-hungry investors’ radars.

“A vacancy rate of under four per cent strongly indicates that a market is undersupplied with rental product,” he said.

“This is the lowest residential vacancy rate recorded on the Gold Coast for more than a decade and places the Gold Coast at a similar level of dwelling undersupply as the much larger Brisbane City.”

Mr Broad said the shortage of permanent rentals was causing rental yields to rise.

“Nowhere is this more evident than in Surfers Paradise,” he said.

“According to Australian Property Monitors, apartments in Surfers Paradise are returning gross rental yields of 6.5 per cent.

“This is excellent in the current investment climate and significantly higher than nearly all other suburbs on the Gold Coast.”
