The Metrics That Matter

High DSR Increase In Mackay From 49 – 65

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:

  1. Days on market 
  2. % vendor discount 
  3. Gross rental yield 
  4. Auction clearance rate 
  5. Market cycle timing
  6. Vacancy rate 
  7. % renters 
  8. Online Search Interest (OSI) 

Based on Mardent’s research, the DSR in jumped from 49 in 2018 to 62 in April. 

Suggesting a growing market that has a very promising future, it’s the best time to invest when the rest of the market is still generally unaware of this uprising star.

Decreasing Vacancy Rates And Strong Rental Forecast

A sign of the potential growth that this investment has is the notable decrease in vacancy rates down to 1.8% in the past year.   Higher rents mean higher prices for houses. 

The Mardent Insight

Our research shows that the end rent is approximately $510 per  per week, with an almost 6%% yield on net purchase price.
