Rental Shortages During the Times of COVID-19

By Natalie Cooper

In 2020, the rental housing market across Australia was hit by an unexpected shock: the COVID-19 pandemic.

With COVID-19 in play across our nation, demand for rental properties was unfortunately reduced in 2020, at the same time supply was increased. 

As lockdown eased and things started to return to normal, there has been an inverse of this situation, with a shortage of rental properties available across Australia, and the State of Victoria. 

This has been felt in Narre Warren South and the surrounding areas. We, at Ray White Narre Warren South, encourage investors to start thinking about renting their property through us today!

Who are we looking for?
At Ray White in Narre Warren South, we’re looking to take on new clients who have purchased new or new-ish investment properties recently, with the aim to rent it out.

We can provide the most competitive rental rates and fees on the market and can arrange the transition to make everything seamless for you
