These little known suburbs are offering the highest rental yields around the country

High rents and rising values are inspiring greater investor activity this year

Advertised rents on houses and apartments have risen by more than 40 percent nationwide since the pre-pandemic period, with a shortage of rental homes and record levels of net overseas migration pushing weekly rents higher and reducing vacancy rates to historical lows, said Proptrack senior economist Eleanor Creagh.

However, Ms Creagh said the pressure in Australia’s rental market should ease over the next year as overseas migration falls, with the Federal Government expecting it to halve from here. Meantime, home values have continued to lift because the supply versus demand imbalance is now so great it is trumping the traditional dampening effect of rising interest rates on prices. Proptrack data showed the national median value lifted for the 17th consecutive month in May.

“Despite a rise in the number of homes for sale this year, strong population growth, tight rental markets, and home equity gains are all contributing to demand, while the supply side of the housing market has fallen short and as a result, home prices reached a fresh peak in May as robust demand has continued to push prices upwards,” Ms Creagh said.

More investors are in the property market this year due to strong rental yields and continually rising values. Ms Creagh said lending to investors had reached record levels in Queensland, South Australia and Western Australia, which are the strongest states at the moment for capital city price growth and rental demand.

Proptrack has published data showing the top suburbs for rental yields in both the capital cities and regional areas of each state, as well as the suburbs with the highest capital growth over five years.

Here are the results for the five mainland states.

The celebrity power couple are selling the 12-bedroom, 24-bathroom home barely a year after buying it

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have officially put their massive Los Angeles mansion on the market for $68 million.

The lavish Beverly Hills property hit listing sites on Thursday, months after rumours began that the couple, who are reportedly estranged , were shopping the home around only a year after buying it for nearly $61 million.

The roughly 5-acre property—which is in a gated community and spans a massive 38,000 square feet—includes an indoor sports court with an adjacent gym and games room, according to the listing with Santiago Arana of the Agency. The firm declined to comment.

Lopez and Affleck paid $60.8 million for the compound in 2023.

Built in 2000, the house has 12 bedrooms and a whopping 24 bathrooms. The resort-sized property has the amenities to match, including a V-shaped pool with views over the surrounding hills, a detached two-bedroom guardhouse and a 5,000-square-foot guest penthouse, according to the listing.

Listing images of the house show that Lopez and Affleck have spent the past year warming up what were fairly white-washed interiors when they purchased the home. There’s now a rich, green-painted dining room, hardwood floors and carpeted over cold, polished-stone flooring.

The couple, who got married in 2022 after reuniting some 20 years after they called off their engagement in the early 2000s, purchased the megamansion following a house hunt that went on for several months, The Wall Street Journal reported at the time.

Representatives for Lopez, 54, and Affleck, 51, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
