Notes and Definitions
• Cheaper: One-quarter of properties rent for less than this price.
• Average: This is the median price
• Dearer: One-quarter of properties rent for more than this price.
Prices include social housing, so ‘cheaper’ levels of market rents are unlikely to be found in the private sector in some suburbs. Properties are often let from January for 12 months, hence there is often an increase in rents at the beginning of the year.
