Abstract

Purpose

This study seeks to determine an appropriate form of yield analysis as a means of improving the supply of low cost rental housing within Australia.

Design/methodology/approach

Rental returns are quantified on a disaggregated basis based on the amalgamation of three major government property databases.

Findings

Much of the information on returns in low cost rental housing is based on erroneous assumptions. More accurate reporting of returns would put in place the appropriate risk premium for investment in low cost rental housing.

Originality/value

The study adds value by allowing policy makers to better understand the nature of returns required to increase the level of investment in the low cost end of the private rental market.
