The Best Rent Report is perfect if you are looking for a positively geared or best possible cash flow investment property without compromising capital growth opportunities in the long term. 


Importance of high rental returns for investors

Negative gearing on residential property is only successful when net future capital gains exceed net rental losses, sale, acquisition, holding and capital expenditure costs of the property. Reducing your reliance on capital growth as the only positive income source associated with property investment helps to reduce your risk, and locating positively geared or neutrally geared residential properties is the way to do this. Positive gearing simply means that your costs of holding the property (interest, rates, insurances etc) are less than the rental income that you receive. If you are looking to build a property portfolio, having the best possible rental yield will assist with your affordability to purchase additional properties sooner.**

How the Best Rent Report is created

Residex starts with quantitative research by calculating capital growth predictions and current yields of units and houses for every suburb in Australia. Results are ranked by total return, where total return is the sum of the current rental yield and the average predicted capital growth over five years. Results with total returns less than ten per cent are excluded from the list. Analysts then turn to qualitative research to remove results with higher risk - such as very small localities, high environmental risk or areas with only one major employer. Analysts are also looking for areas with strong rental demand and a rationale for this to increase in the region. The final result is an exceptionally good shortlist that investors could not replicate with individual research.
