Rental Market Rents are currently growing faster than house prices, driven by a shortage of rental stock. In the first quar ter to March 2011, rents rose on average: • 7.6 per cent in NSW • 6.5 per cent in Victoria • 2.8 per cent in Queensland With tight rental vacancies and ongoing demand for rental accommodation we expect this trend of increasing rents to continue.
