The rental market has proven resilient to the increase of new rental stock and the fall in demand following the Commonwealth Games.

The REIQ Residential Vacancy Rate report for the September quarter showed Gold Coast vacancies tightened from two per cent in June to 1.7 per cent in September.

Median rents for all properties except one-bedroom units have trended upwards for the past year.

 

The former Commonwealth Games Athletes Village will add about 1200 units and townhouses to the Gold Coast property market.

 

The median rent for a house was $550 while a unit was $420, according to CoreLogic.

The REIQ report revealed the upcoming release of the Commonwealth Athletes Village to the rental market would add about 1200 units and townhouses, or 1.6 per cent additional stock which would likely help ease the tight market conditions.
