Homeownership Gains Appeal Amid Surging Rental Prices

Rising Rents Boost Homeownership Appeal

Back to blog

As rental prices continue to outpace mortgage increases, more individuals are finding homeownership to be a more appealing and cost-effective option.

With rising rents outpacing mortgage increases, purchasing property is becoming a more attractive option for many. According to the latest inflation data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), the consumer price index (CPI) increased by 1% in the most recent quarter, culminating in a 3.6% rise over the 12 months to March.

Notably, rental prices have surged by 7.7% over the past year, marking the highest increase since 2009. In contrast, new mortgage costs have only risen by 5.1%. The ABS data reveals that rental inflation has consistently surpassed mortgage inflation since June 2023. Inner city suburbs within a 12.5 km radius of the CBD now experience the highest rental inflation rates in Australia.

Meanwhile, areas further from the CBD have seen a moderation in rental inflation since mid-2023. The CPI data also indicates a general moderation in inflation for other sectors, including food.
