The latest RP Data September 2014 Quarter Rental Review highlighted the growth of rental activity across the nation over the last 12 months, with both detached homes and units experiencing a weekly yield increase of 1.3 per cent.
RP Data national research director Tim Lawless noted that, despite this growth, capital gains were far outpacing the value derived from rents, indicating that investors should focus more on profiting from home values than rental yields.
"The performance of rental markets are diverse, however the common theme is that generally the rate of capital gain is outpacing the change in weekly rents which is driving rental yields lower," said Mr Lawless in a 8 October statement.
"This is happening at a time when investment demand is at record levels and trending higher, which highlights that most investors are focussing on capital gains and ignoring the low yield scenario."
