Invest in a Rooming House with new property australia

Rooming houses offer the opportunity to lease each lettable space separately. By doing this, high yields are achievable, and in some cases, 10% or better may be possible.

Whilst each habitable space is self-contained, under Rooming House legislation there is a requirement for a common area that includes 1 shared laundry, kitchen and living area which allows the higher returns to be achieved. This does vary from council to council. Rents achieved from this type of dwelling are far higher than letting a single house in the same location.


Rooming houses are managed by specialised and experienced Property Managers, who have each tenant sign a separate lease. Each lettable space is self-contained and includes an ensuite, small living area, kitchenette, and sometimes may have external access. The maintenance of the shared areas, plus the costs of water, electricity and Internet are the responsibility of the property owner. A Rooming House is a residential dwelling that is certified as class 1B, and specifically designed for separate tenancies. In Brisbane City Council Area, a Rooming House has a maximum of 5 lettable areas, with a maximum of 5 unrelated parties, and a total floor area no larger than 300m2.

New Property Investment of Anson Needham

"New Property Australia helped the build of my residence, taking the project from design through to completion of construction. They allowed me to supply input and were involved through every step of the process. The home was completed on time and within budget. I am incredibly happy with the result and am now living in my home. I am currently engaging with New Property Australia for the purchase of a second-high yielding property to add to my investment portfolio."

I was seeking a high yielding investment property in South East Queensland that would give me a positive cash-flow. New Property Australia were able to find and source a nice block of land in a good street close to key amenities, shopping, medical and employment. I have now had the property for 3 years and it has been performing exceptionally well. I would happily recommend New Property Australia to anyone looking for an investment property."


Dual Occupancy Property Investment of Julie Sutton

"We are living in Sydney with the view to moving back to Queensland in the future. We wanted to buy an investment property in QLD prior to making the move. New Property Australia helped us in sourcing a block of land in a leafy suburb where we could build a dual occupancy / auxiliary dwelling which would provide as with a positive cash-flow. They helped us to engage with a quality builder and design a unique dwelling to suite the block of land. We were incredibly pleased with the result and quickly found ideal tenants for the property. We would not hesitate to recommend New Property Australia."

Rooming House investment Properties are High Yielding

1. Get a high return on your property investment

Critical to any property investment is the delivery of a return on that investment. Rooming houses are uniquely strong as a type of property investment. Not only do they offer a high yield, but also Capital Growth. This is for multiple reasons:

  • Up to 5 separate rents for the one dwelling/block of land

  • For a low-density residential block this is the highest and best use of the land

  • Each room is completely independent and lockable

  • Risk mitigation by having separate leases. If one person moves out, there are still up to 4 rents coming in until a suitable replacement tenant is found.

  • Only one set of rates are payable for the property

  • It supplies affordable housing in locations where it may otherwise be unavailable

  • High depreciation due to the level of fixtures, fittings, and furniture etc

  • No Body Corporate fees

  • Supplies positive cash-flow and high rental yield to the investor

  • In many instances these properties are code assessable meaning they do not require any specialised development approval
