MCG Rental Loss Index
The MCG Quantity Surveyors Rental Loss Index
About the index
As tax depreciation experts working with landlords across Australia, we wanted to create an industry first rental index that highlighted the high risk investment locations.

The MCG Quantity Surveyors Rental Loss Index highlights the top 10 suburbs in Australia, ranked by rental losses due to rental vacancies. The index uses total rental listings greater than 21 days for the suburb, multiplied by the suburbs aggregated median rent to provide a total rental lost index per suburb.

The first release Feb 2021 was featured in the national media.

The table below shows the top 20 suburbs for rental losses per investor across Australia.

Below is a calculator which enables you to search your suburb to find the average rental loss value per investor in that suburb as well as the MCG Rental Loss Index Number.

An index rating of 10 represents a high risk market for investors, with the lowest rating of 1 indicative of a tight rental market not exposed to significant rental losses.

It's important to note that this is a decile index, and a ranking of 10 just means it's in the top 10% of suburbs for rental losses.
