SQM Research’s managing director, Louis Christopher, reported on Twitter that rental vacancies have hit an apparent “trend reversal” and are now falling:
Total rental listings update through to 26 June 2020. Looks like a trend reversal here. Numbers have been checked. It means we will likely record a fall in rental vacancy rates for June 2020…
We know rents have fallen, so one theory here is a movement down along the supply curve. Less weekly $$ rents = less landlords keen to rent at those lower levels. Unless they are forced to, of course.
