Exploring Rental Yields in Toowoomba

Exploring Rental Yields in Toowoomba Suburbs and Surrounding Towns

Rental yield is a measure of the annual rental income as a percentage of the property's value. It helps investors determine the potential return on investment. A higher rental yield indicates a more profitable investment.

Understanding the rental yields across different suburbs and property types can significantly enhance your investment strategy. While higher rental yields indicate better returns, it's also crucial to consider factors such as property maintenance costs, market trends, and long-term capital growth.

The graph below is published by Core Logic in May 2024. It shows the gross median rental yield and median sales price across Toowoomba and surrounding areas. Note if there is not a mention of units in a suburb, they don’t have enough data ie not enough rental units in that suburb to be able to supply accurate information.

 Keys points from the data:

**High Rental Yields:** Suburbs like Harlaxton, Harristown, Kearneys Spring, Newtown, and Rockville exhibit high rental yields for units, reaching up to 6%.

**Moderate Rental Yields:** The majority of suburbs have moderate rental yields ranging from 4% to 5% for both houses and units.

**Lower Rental Yields:** East Toowoomba shows a slightly lower rental yield for houses at 3%, which is indicative of higher property values or other market factors.
