It’s a good time to invest in rental properties in Cairns

Recent analysis of the Cairns’ rental market has indicated unusually low rental vacancy rates, which could potentially increase rental prices in the area. In the August 2016 edition of Cairns Watch by Australia’s largest Independent Property Advisory group, Herron Todd White, Rental Vacancy Rates for both units and houses have tightened towards stress levels.

“The latest trend rental vacancy rate for July 2016 stood at 1.5% for houses and 2.0% for units. The market vacancy trend overall stood at 1.7%.” (source: Cairnswatch.com.au).

What does this mean for Cairns property investors?

With tourism returning to strong growth, house prices softening and rental vacancies at a low 1.5%; this is the perfect time to invest in property in the Cairns area. According to RealEstate.com.au, investors with a 3 bed house in Cairns North can expect around a 4.2% rental yield. If you then consider that Herron Todd White believe Cairns housing is a rising market and units are in the start of a recovery, then potential capital growth is also looking positive.

International tourism to Cairns and Tropical North Queensland is continuing to storm ahead, with 2015-2016 figures 13% up on the year before. Tropical North Queensland is the most preferred destination for tourists in Queensland, with over 800,000 visitors bringing in a total of $1.1 billion to the area over the last financial year.

Real Commercial recently highlighted how investors are being drawn in by Queensland’s tourism market, with Cairns and the Gold Coast outperforming the rest of the country.

The addition of the new Nova City launched a few weeks ago, the proposed Aquis Resort and investment into Palm Cove’s harbour are strong positive signals for the area.
