Median rents quick finder – How much are you charging?

Spring 2017

The Residential Tenancies Authority median rents quick finder is the sure fire way of finding out how much you should be paying (or charging) in rent in a particular area.

The ready reckoner uses data collected by the RTA in towns and cities right throughout Queensland.

The quick finder is the most accurate and reliable way of seeing what a rental property is worth, and it’s a valuable tool for tenants and property manager/owners alike.

The data, released quarterly, covers:

  • 1, 2, and 3 bedroom flats/units
  • 2, 3, and 4 bedroom houses
  • 2 and 3 bedroom townhouses

RTA CEO Darren Barlow said the data, based on postcodes and collected from bond lodgement forms, had broader applications

"This information is being increasingly used to follow trends and allow planners to make considered choices about social, construction, housing and infrastructure issues," Mr Barlow said.
