Holiday destinations in Queensland have topped a list of suburbs where investors are likely to receive the highest income from an investment property.One-bedroom units in Cairns, Miami, Port Douglas and Noosaville make the top ten list of suburbs with the highest rental yields, realestate.com.au/Invest data shows.Caboolture, a satellite city in southeast Queensland, has the highest average rental yield in the country at 15.2%. Caboolture has a 15.2% rental yield, according to realestate.com.au/Invest.*Sunny Caboolture a new haven for investors?Professionals Caboolture Real Estate Principal Leigh Chippendale says she’s not surprised to see Caboolture stacking up decent rental returns for investors, but its prospects haven’t always been so bright.“Throughout the GFC we had to ask our landlords to drop rent or keep rent the same,” Chippendale says.“Now we’re able to increase rent, and we feel justified in doing so, where as a few years back that wasn’t the case.”Southeast spotlight: What’s inside the Golden Triangle?Chippendale says it’s mostly ‘mum and dad’ investors dominating the Caboolture investor market these days. “They’re starting to feel confident again. In the last three months we’ve started to get interstate investors back too,” she says.“As long as the figures match up with the returns they expect, they’re happy to buy sight unseen.“We’re also starting to see purchaser’s agents – that’s usually a sign of groups of investors becoming more confident of the market.”‘Mum and dad’ investors tighten their foothold on the Caboolture market.Chippendale says the Caboolture property market is pretty typical of most of Australia – probably about a third of housing is investor-owned.“Demographics are quite mixed – retirees, down-sizers, up-graders, couples in their 20s just starting out and a diverse range of working skills.“From an investment point of view, you know you can buy a good quality home in Caboolture for a reasonable price with good rental returns.“You have all the facilities here for people who wish to live here and rent your property. The area continues to grow – we have good private and public schools, good medical facilities, a community hub that offers a great library, arts and educational facilities.“It’s a great place to live … you’re only half an hour from the beaches, 45 minutes from the hinterland, and 30 minutes from the Brisbane CBD.“Plus, the weather’s good.”A range of commercial opportunities are attracting renters to Caboolture.What is rental yield?Rental yield is an important factor for investors to consider because it will indicate the future income an asset is likely to make.Rental yield is the rate of income return over the cost associated with an investment. There are two types of rental yield, which are calculated a little differently: gross rental yield and net rental yield.The suburb rental yield represented in these results uses the calculation for gross rental yield, which is annual rental income, divided by the property value and expressed as a percentage.Find out more: What is yield?To get the suburb rental yield, we’ve used the median advertised rent as a percentage of median price, based on the number of property rentals and property sales in the past 12 months. The data looks specifically at one and two-bedroom units.It’s important to note that gross rental yield does not take into account the known or estimated property costs and ongoing expenses that will affect a property’s value, such as stamp duty, legal fees, council rates and building and pest inspections.To calculate a more precise prediction of rental return, you would need to estimate these costs and deduct them from the annual rental income to get the net rental yield.Investor consideration: Capital gain vs. cash flowNational Top 10 suburbs with the highest rental yieldListed by suburb, state, bedroom configuration and gross rental yield.

Giana Wameling beat out a bunt single. Then, on a 3-2 pitch, Alayna Harbaugh tripled to the wall, scoring Wameling, and then trotted home on Brandi Feeney’s RBI single.Brooke Nicolaos walked, and so did Ally Cifaratta to load the bases. Jordyn Maldonado watched Young throw a wild pitch to plate another run and, moments later, singled home Nicolaos and Cifaratta. It was 5-0 before B’ville had even recorded an out.Young was pulled in favor of Taylor Tripodi, who kept C-NS from adding to that total the rest of the first inning and, for the rest of the night, would do a superb job, only surrendering single runs off wild pitches in the second and fourth innings.Still, that early outburst made the ultimate difference, partially because Corasaniti, as she put it, was “as focused as I could be” in atoning for her struggles in her last outing against the Bees.Twice, B’ville tried to put together sustained rallies. In the third inning, two walks, plus Kaycee Hawk’s single, loaded the bases, but though a wild pitch scored a run, Corasaniti prevented anything more.Then, in the sixth, C-NS, up 7-1, had one more nervous moment. Two leadoff singles, plus one by Tripodi with two outs, created another bases-loaded situation, and Chloe Branshaw singled to bring two runs home.Corasaniti recovered to strike out pinch-hitter Kyrah Wilbur to end that threat and then, in the seventh, retired Mattison Phinney, Madison Ascioti and Hawk in order, fanning Hawk to end it, her ninth strikeout of the night.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story Just as all of them do when such a feat is accomplished, members of the Cicero-North Syracuse softball team posed for pictures with the championship banner after it defeated Baldwinsville 7-3 in Monday night’s Section III Class AA title game at Carrier Park.But that wasn’t enough.Head coach Mary Beebe invited some of the Northstars’ biggest fans for more pictures. Then she brought in parents, grandparents, other relatives and friends for one more round of photos. All of them enjoyed, as much as possible, C-NS’s accomplishment of a third consecutive sectional championship, earned against a B’ville side that was aiming for a first-ever title and fought hard all the way to the end – but never recovered from the devastating early blow the Northstars threw at them.So much of this game was a direct response to the Bees beating C-NS 14-8 back on May 8, a game where B’ville got to Northstars pitcher Ariana Corasaniti for five first-inning runs and led 14-0 before hanging on late.Here, Corasaniti weathered a top of the first where an error and single put two B’ville runners on base before Kayla Young lined out. Then C-NS had its turn at the plate. Tags: BaldwinsvilleC-NSSoftball
