The national rental vacancy rate in October was a record-low 0.8% โ€“ exactly where it was a year earlier, according to Domain.

That means just 8 out of every 1000 rental properties were untenanted last month, highlighting just how hard it is for tenants to find accommodation โ€“ and, conversely, how easy it is for property investors to find tenants.

Over the past year, as the table shows, vacancy rates have barely moved in most capital cities.

Domainโ€™s chief of research and economics, Nicola Powell, said the rental market was likely to become even more challenging for tenants during the new year 'changeover period'.

โ€œThis limits their options, keeps competition tough, and can lead to higher rent costs, added stress during the transition, and weakened negotiating power for tenants. While we anticipate a seasonal increase in rental supply in the coming months, this is shaping up to be one of the most challenging peak changeover periods tenants have ever experienced,โ€ she said.
