The median rent for houses in regional WA fell 2.6 per cent in the December quarter to $370 a week, while the median rent for units fell 3 per cent to $320, according to the latest CoreLogic RP Data.

Well watch out for Stayz (and not Air BnB). The best I was quoted and got from professional RE agents was $300 weekly for a 2 storey waterfront 4 bedroom house now getting $1300 weekly on STAYZ. I spend more time drinking than marketing- so I assume they are mostly incompetent- or I am a marketing genius. Has to be one or the this is now the 3rd year and average $500 a week even with the house empty 40% of the year. Real estate "pros" do not understand "north facing" "new giant 24 hour shopping centre" "dolphins out front" "10 minutes into town and beach"- they are the crappest neysayers.
