These two cities have been far behind when it comes to capital growth yet the data suggested by sales has a rising transaction activity. While a robust growth can be seen in home values, even though largely centered on Melbourne and Sydney, the rental rates have not followed the same trend. Throughout the combined capital cities, an increase of 1.9% on the rental rates for houses and 3.0% for units has been seen over the 12 months leading to September 2014. Currently the rental growth is much lesser than the average growth rate of five years i.e. 3.9% representing that the rental pressure is very little currently and home value growth has outstripped the rental growth.Besides these it also tells that Canberra and Perth have both filed lowering rents across the last year. In fact only 18 months ago, Perth rents were increasing at an annual rate greater than 10% but since then the Perth market has experienced a substantial and rapid slowing of rental growth.

As on September 2014, the net rental outcome for a capital city unit was 4.5% and for a capital city houses it was 3.7%.
Net rental outcomes are depreciating at rapid rate; a year ago, capital city rental outputs were measured at 4.7% for units and 4.0% for houses. With the sights of any vital rental increase lessened over the short-haul, the expectation is that the rental yields will soften while following the trend over the upcoming year. It also discusses that rental outputs have lessened across all cities in the past year at an individual capital city level. Sydney and Melbourne have the least yields among all capital cities at 3.8% and 3.4% respectively. Hobart and Darwin on the other hand have backed the greatest yields among all capital cities at 5.2% and 5.9% respectively. It is essential to recall that the values marked are gross outputs. Finally it tells that taking a view at housing finance, on an across the state basis reveals that in most states lending activity has extended. On a yearly average basis, capitalists in New South Wales pledged to $4.5 billion in finance in August.
