Auckland Rental Market Update – may 2022

May 2022 Update

Proudly presenting the latest residential rental data as supplied by the Real Estate Institue of New Zealand (REINZ).

In some Auckland areas, we’re seeing the median weekly rent return to the levels we experienced at the same time last year. Or, in some cases, even noting Auckland rents decreasing. 

In May of 2022, the average weekly rent for one-bedroom rental properties in Auckland City Centre was $367. Compare this to $401 in May last year and you’ll see a 9.2% decrease in rent prices.

In Devonport, the median rent for a two-bedroom was $495 per week, down from $600 the year previous.

A Note from us,

As a result of rising interest cost, we expected to see an influx of investors increasing the rents across their portfolios over the next year. However, this number has fallen to an all-time low since June 2021 with only 5.7% of investors looking to increase rent.

Many landlords report it is progressively harder to find good tenants, reflected in their desire to keep their current tenants rather than seek new ones.

Rents are showing a slight decrease due to an influx of available rental stock, competition of vacant properties across Auckland, and landlords wanting to fill their properties faster. Other parts of the country are also facing similar changes.

For more information, please get in touch with your property manager today.

Please Note: These market rent statistics have been provided by the Real Estate Institute of New Zealand. The data has been derived from information gathered from bonds lodged at the Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment (MBIE) – Tenancy Bond Services. 

However, these results may not be a true representation of the entire housing market. They are only a reflection of rental properties where bonds have been lodged at the MBIE – Tenancy Bond Services. 

This report is two months in arrears as per the data provided by MBIE. Removing the most recent month of data provides a more complete and accurate picture of all bonds lodged. This is because the most recent month’s data is incomplete. This is due to the time taken between a bond being lodged (23 working days) and the database being updated.
