We also commented on research showing that people are relocating to regional areas away from capital cities, which is in turn helping to drive house price growth and lower vacancy rates in regional areas.
Now, thanks to data provided by SuburbTrends, we have a remarkable visualisation which shows - in just 30 seconds (!) - the changes in vacancy rates among capital cities and regions over the past 24 months.

As many of our long term investors and tenants would be aware, we made the decision to change property management software platforms in mid-2020. The change was made primarily to improve the "back of office" operations in our business, along with some improvements for our investors and tenants also.
While the new system was bedded in and our documented systems and processes were refined, we were holding off turning on one major feature - access to owner and tenant portals.
We all know 2020 has been a wild ride. We're all looking forward to a well deserved break with family and friends over the Christmas period to take stock of what has truly been an extraordinary year.
