About 25% of Lismore’s population lives in rental accommodation with the median rent now being $395 per week for houses and a median rental yield of just under 4.7%, according to the latest Herron Todd White (HTW) residential report. 

The valuation firm took a look at the rental yields across the country to dissect where to find best returns in residential markets. 

The official population of Lismore City as at 30 June 2018 was 43,843 according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

The median rent for units in the Lismore area is $275 per week, with a median rental yield of just over 5%.

With a low vacancy rate relative to many regional centres of 1% and the ability to buy a four-bedroom, two-bathroom dwelling for under $400,000, Lismore and its surrounding suburbs represents an opportunity to invest in property without going into debt up to the eyeballs.

"The trade-off for this relative stability is normally lower capital growth, however for the first time investor, building a stable base for a property portfolio is important," the valuation firm said.
