Likely increased investor activity in Brisbane predicted

From RP Data Press Release:  "Gross rental yields on a typical Melbourne house are sitting at 3.3 per cent and Sydney gross yields are a bit higher at 3.7 per cent. According to Mr Lawless, such a scenario of low yields in these two cities suggests that housing values have moved out of step with rental rates which is likely to dampen some of the investor exuberance we have seen in both of these markets. I wouldn’t be surprised if Brisbane, where home values are much more affordable and rental yields are comparatively healthy, will start to see an increase in investor related demand based on Brisbane’s early stage in the growth cycle and comparatively healthy rental yields,” he said."
