The Metrics That Matter
The DSR (Demand Supply Ratio) is among the most important metrics that every property investor needs to know about. It’s a comprehensive metric that uses several factors of a property market to come up with a number on a scale of 0-100 (higher is better).
As you may have read from our previous article the DSR score encompasses 8 indicators that help mitigate property investment risk:
- Days on market
- % vendor discount
- Gross rental yield
- Auction clearance rate
- Market cycle timing
- Vacancy rate
- % renters
- Online Search Interest (OSI)
Based on Mardent’s research, the DSR in jumped from 49 in 2018 to 62 in April.
