Rent in CQ drastically declines in past two years
RENT in Central Queensland is on the decline, but Rockhampton is still one of the most expensive areas.
A three-bedroom rental in the Rockhampton region will set you back on average $295 a week, while Gladstone isn't far behind on $290, according to the latest Residential Tenancies Authority's statistics for the September quarter.
It was a different story two years ago in 2013 when Gladstone rentals were booming with a three-bedroom house costing $440 a week.
Meanwhile, the Capricorn Coast has stayed steady with rental prices in the past three years, with a three-bedroom home costing anywhere from $300-$350 a week.
