Melbourne is one of two capital cities (along with Sydney) that have recorded the strongest increase in home values in the past 12 months, while also recording the lowest rental yields.

However, apartment rents are now rising to record levels, with vacancy rates falling despite a new apartment boom. House rents remain at peak values, with low vacancy rates indicating no relief in sight for tenants. Median weekly asking unit rentals increased to $380 over the March quarter for an annual increase of 4.1 per cent. House rents consolidated at the record $400 per week – an increase of 2.6 per cent over the year. Vacancy rates for houses remain tight, with unit rates now falling despite the recent surge in new supply.
