  4. The supply of affordable private rental housing in Australian cities: short-term and longer-term changes

    Author(s): Kath Hulse; Margaret Reynolds; Christian Nygaard; Sharon Parkinson; Judith Yates

    Description: This research charts the changes in the supply of affordable and available private rental housing for lower income households between 2011 and 2016, and is the latest in a series of projects detailing affordable rental housing supply every five years since 1996 using Census data. There is strong evidence of structural change in the private rental market, with an increase in privately rented dwellings affordable by Q3–Q5 households, while the market is not supplying sufficient rental properties for lower income Q1 and Q2 households.

  10. Navigating a changing private rental sector: opportunities and challenges for low-income renters

    Author(s): Sharon Parkinson; Amity James; Edgar Liu

    Description: This study investigated how low-income renters navigate the private rental sector (PRS) via three core pathways: the formal (via traditional or mainstream real estate agent intermediaries), informal (direct to rooms and dwellings privately managed by landlords and sub-landlords) and supported pathways (via community housing agencies). It provides practitioners and policy makers with an evidence base on changing practices and ways forward in shaping equitable PRS institutions.
