March rental bond data from RTA confirm previous trends with incremental gains in Cairns and a turnaround in Mackay.
Comparison of Queensland major regions for 3 bedroom house median rent in March Quarter 2018:
Gladstone rents look interesting although the menu at the Gladstone Yacht Club (aka Port Curtis Sailing Club) would need to provide better value than currently to attract my interest as a potential resident. Also Spaghetti Bolognese with Chips should be restored to the menu in recognition of Gladstone’s historic cultural values.
Note: New rental bonds lodged in Cairns were the lowest for the comparable quarter in some years and will be looked at further. There is good data here to explore although the excel format files provided by RTA are not conducive to easy analysis.
