So I will just do a quick and nasty selected cut & paste for now. These numbers are 3br houses and look to be fairly typical of comparative trends among the sectors. Only Cairns here has shown a rental increase over two years, with a significant fall in Mackay. Cairns has now caught up with Townsville.
I have also thrown in Isaac where the numbers represent almost entirely the mining towns of Moranbah and Dysart.
Note re Aquis: Beware the unintended consequences of a construction boom. I would have thought affordable student accommodation around JCU should already have been flagged on that?
