Top Markets to Rentvest for Millennials


According to research, Millennials are struggling to purchase their first home, let alone investment properties. Apparently, 68 percent of Boomers (aged 58-76) owned their own home by age 30-34 compared with just 50 percent of Millennials (aged 21-41) in the same age bracket. This is why rentvesting is becoming such a strong trend. These are the top markets to rentvest for 2022.


Why is there such a decline in the property purchases for Millennials? 

Underemployment is an issue in Australia, especially among younger Australians. This is due to the fact that many young people are locked into casual jobs, which makes saving for a deposit on a home difficult because they don’t earn much in their part-time or casual job. Rising rent prices also make it hard for a person to save money because that usually takes up most of their income.

After years of stagnant wage growth amidst local and global economic recession, economists had been predicting wages would rise by more than two percent during 2022. But while inflation is moving upwards globally and locally, Omicron threatens to stifle any increase to pay brackets.


This is why many Millennials have turned to rentvesting. 

Rentvesting is when you rent your primary residence, but you also choose to invest in other properties to build wealth. Rentvesting allows you to rent a place to live in that’s right for your lifestyle, while you own an investment property that’s better for your budget.

It’s a strategy that has been growing with Millennials in Australia (and the USA) over the past couple of years. It’s helping Millennials get into property investment faster. 

In the past, the general thought regarding property investment was that you obtained the Australian white picket fence dream home before purchasing additional properties as investments. 

However, in today’s property climate, property values are rapidly outpacing wage growth; this means that every year, those in the market to buy a house have less money available and the prices continue to rise. In the past decade alone, housing prices went up 33% compared with 14% for household incomes, so now you need many more years of saving before you will be able to buy your own house.

Therefore, rentvesting is a strategy that can help people get out of the rat race of being renters their entire life.

As with everything in life, there are pros and cons. We discussed the pros and cons of rentvesting in other articles.
