Rental rates in Brisbane increased by 1.1% over the first quarter of 2018 compared to a 1.2% increase in rents across regional Queensland.

Brisbane rents were just 0.6% higher over the past 12 months compared to a larger 2.8% increase across regional Queensland, CoreLogic noted.

Gross rental yields in Brisbane have moved marginally lower over the past year from 4.42% to 4.4%.

Outside of Brisbane, rental yields have increased from 5.24% a year ago to 5.27% currently.

Each SA4 region of Brisbane recorded a quarterly increase in rental rates, while over the past year, rents fell across two of the nine Brisbane SA4 regions.

Rental rates have increased at a similar pace to value which has resulted in seven of the nine Brisbane SA4 regions recording no change in rental yield over the past year while they reduced across the remaining two regions.

The housing market performance is much more mixed in regional Queensland however, values have only fallen over the quarter in two regions and in one region over the past year.

Of the 10 regional markets, six have higher yields than a year ago, two have unchanged yields and two have lower yields.
