Rent Tracker Research Project

22/05/2024

The Tenants' Union Rent Tracker Research Project aims to give tenants, researchers, journalists, and others a clear way to understand rent movements in NSW. The tools below use data published by NSW Fair Trading and are updated monthly or as often as the data is made available – the most recent data covers up to April 2024.

If you have feedback on Rent Tracker, or need help using it, please contact the Tenants’ Union. Or if you are a renter in need of tenancy advice, please contact your local Tenants Advice and Advocacy Service. You can also find out about our methodology and approach to data analysis here.

If you love Rent Tracker, please consider making a donation to the work of the Tenants’ Union.
