In the third quarter of 2023, the typical pricing for houses in West Gladstone was seen at $352,184. The median weekly rent for these properties stands at $396, thus generating a notable indicative yield of 5.85%, above the 3% mark that’s favourable for cashflow-centered property investors.

    In terms of the socio-economic status of its residents, West Gladstone holds an IRSAD score of 884 out of a maximum of 1217, indicating that the suburb is endowed with a relatively solid access to economic resources and occupations.

    However, it’s intriguing to note that the suburb presents a renter to owner ratio of 44%, which falls in the higher-risk range for investors due to the high proportion of renters. Meanwhile, the units to houses ratio stands at just 15%, suggesting a low oversupply risk and a rental market that is more favorable for landlords due to reduced competition.

    Housing affordability in the area is quite attractive with the affordability index for houses standing at just 20 years, which is below the average 30-year mortgage term, demonstrating a market featuring a high level of affordability among its residents. The stock on market Percentage for houses is relatively low at 0.48%, indicating a balanced market supply. This trend is further underlined by the inventory level which stands at 1.06 months, signifying a low supply market which is favorable for property owners.

    The building approvals Ratio for houses also signals low forthcoming supply, with a calculated ratio of 0.09%. The average number of days houses stay on the property market in West Gladstone is at 79, a figure that is slightly high, suggesting a moderate level of demand.

    In summary, while West Gladstone provides a mixed landscape of property market metrics, caution would need to be exercised in relation to its higher renter to owner ratio and days on the market.
