Cheaper rents and house prices

A Greens-led Brisbane City Council would:

We want to put downward pressure on rents and house prices. Our proposals would flood the rental market with properties, force developers to either build or sell vacant land rather than waiting for its value to rise, and would directly drop rents back to their January 2023 levels. Ultimately, we want to change the behaviour of investors, and strongly discourage them from leaving properties empty, from making homes into hotel rooms, and from jacking up the rent.
