In this blog post, we explore rental housing market predictions for 2023 and how they are likely to affect the Australian market. We look at various factors that can impact the industry and provide advice on how to prepare for them. Whether you own a few properties or manage an entire portfolio, this article will provide you with insights into what’s coming up in 2023 and how you can be ready when it comes.
The current state of the rental market in Australia
The current state of the rental market in Australia is one of high demand and low supply. With more people looking to rent than there are properties available, landlords can be choosy about who they rent to and can charge higher rents. This has led to an increase in the number of people renting from private landlords, rather than from state-owned or community-based organisations. The competition for rental properties is particularly fierce in major cities such as Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.
Predictions for the rental market in 2023
In 2023, the Australian rental market is predicted to be very different from what it is today. The biggest change will be the introduction of mandatory rental bonds, which will improve security for both tenants and landlords. There will also be an increase in the number of private rentals, as more people choose to live in smaller, more intimate communities.
The overall vacancy rate is expected to fall, as more people enter the rental market and fewer properties become available. This will lead to increased competition for rentals, and higher prices. In order to keep up with demand, landlords will need to provide better quality properties and services.
Overall, the rental market in 2023 is forecast to be tighter and more expensive than it is today. However, it will still offer good opportunities for those who are willing to search for a property that meets their needs and budget.
What factors will affect the rental market in 2023?
There are numerous factors that will affect the rental market in 2023. Firstly, population growth is projected to continue at a strong rate, with an additional 1.5 million people expected to be living in Australia by 2023. This increase in population will put pressure on the already tight housing market and push up rents. Secondly, interest rates are expected to remain low over the next few years, which will make it more affordable for people to enter the rental market. Thirdly, wages are forecast to grow at a faster rate than inflation over the next few years, giving renters more disposable income to spend on rent. Finally, the supply of new dwellings is not expected to keep up with demand over the next few years, which will further exacerbate the shortage of rental properties and push up rents even further.
How to prepare for changes in the rental market
It’s no secret that the rental market in Australia is constantly changing. Whether it’s due to external factors like the economy or changes in government policy, or internal factors like increasing demand from tenants or a shift in the type of properties being built, landlords need to be prepared for change.
Here are some tips on how to prepare for changes in the rental market:
1. Keep up to date with industry news and analysis
There are a number of ways to stay informed about what’s happening in the Australian rental market.

Additionally, try following AllianceCorp property experts and other experts on social media, as they often share their insights on the latest market conditions.
2. Review your rental property portfolio regularly
Your rental portfolio should be reviewed on a regular basis to ensure it is still meeting your investment goals. This process may involve reassessing your target rental return, evaluating your properties’ performance against comparable properties in the market, and considering whether any properties should be sold or added to your portfolio.
3. Understand your tenants’ needs and wants
It’s important to understand your tenants’ needs and wants so you can adapt your property portfolio accordingly. For example, if you know that families are looking for more space, you may consider investing in larger properties or those with multiple bedrooms. Alternatively, if you know that young
