The rental market in Australia
In Australia, we have several member organisations, whose contact information you can find here. Also as a service to anyone interested, we have also collected facts and information about the housing market in general, and rental market in particular. Most of the publications and links are based on other sources, and the authors themselves are responsible for that information.
