Rental market expert Greg Bader of said the bridesmaid suburbs were likely to have similar transport and lifestyle options to their up-market neighbours while also offering “better bang for buck”.

“For some people, that means saving a few dollars. For others, it means an extra room or car parking,” he said.

“While we’re yet to see a dramatic drop in rental prices like we’ve seen in sale prices, there’s certainly more choice out there.

“Renters should be prepared to look around for that bargain.”
