Rental Affordability Snapshot

The Rental Affordability Snapshot is designed to highlight the lived experience of looking for housing while on a low income. It focuses on the Australian population who earn the least income – Commonwealth benefit recipients and minimum wage earners.

What it determines

Every year, Anglicare WA tests if it is possible for people on low incomes to rent a home in the private market. They do this by taking a snapshot of the thousands of properties listed for rent on realestate.com.au. They test whether each property is affordable and suitable for people on low incomes.
