The Leasing Labyrinth – Renters, Gear Up For a Rocky 2024

The leasing landscape in Melbourne is on the brink of a major upheaval. Get ready for a wild ride, renters — you’re facing a perfect storm of surging rental prices and a scarcity of available properties like never before! Why is this happening? Land taxes are soaring, especially hitting offshore investors hard, sparking a massive shift towards owner-occupied properties. This is intensifying Melbourne’s housing crisis to critical levels, as the gap between supply and demand widens alarmingly. And there’s more — the demand for furnished properties is hitting a record high, unseen in the last 15 years. Plus, the luxury ‘build-to-rent’ sector is booming, but it’s mostly a playground for the affluent. Fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy year in the leasing world!
