Banyule Rental Market Sees Record-High Prices Amid Low Vacancy Rates


Rents continue to rise strongly in Banyule amid low vacancy rates and continued demand. The Melbourne-wide vacancy rate is currently sitting at 2.1%1 and the Miles vacancy rate is extremely tight at 0.99%. During the second quarter of 2023, a total of 187 properties were leased by Miles, with an average time on the market of just 14 days.  We received a staggering 3801 enquires from prospective tenants in search of a rental property. Out of the 187 leased properties, we received 1,251 applications, meaning that a significant 1,064 of applicants were unsuccessful.

With the limited availability of properties in the market, well-presented properties are achieving excellent returns, so if you are thinking about renting out your property, now is an ideal time. The heightened demand ensures that you can choose from a pool of highly qualified tenants and enjoy a substantial return on your investment.
