Rental payments can be a better measure of the cost of housing in Dunedin City than mortgage repayments because they are not contingent on length of occupancy or equity in the dwelling.
High rental payments may indicate desirable areas with mobile populations who prefer to rent, or a housing shortage, or gentrification. Low rental payments may indicate public housing (check Tenure Type), or areas where low income households move by necessity for a lower cost of living.
Rental payments are not directly comparable over time because of inflation. For comparison of rental payments over time, go to Housing Rental Quartiles.
