census-message-logo

This topic has been updated with 2016 Census data for all areas. What's this?

In Greenwith - Salisbury Heights - Salisbury East, 3.4% of renting households were paying $450 or more per week in rent in 2016.

Rental payments can be a better measure of the cost of housing in Greenwith - Salisbury Heights - Salisbury East 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.

Derived from the Census questions:

'How much does your household pay for this dwelling?' and 'Is this dwelling (owned outright, owned with a mortgage etc.)'
