Property investors take note – here are 53 suburbs where rent rises are beating inflation

Fairfield, six kilometres north east of the Melbourne CBD, topped the list of suburbs to record inflation-busting rental growth for the year to January 2012 with rents rising 13.4% according to property manager Run Property.

In total 28 Sydney suburbs, 23 Melbourne suburbs and two Brisbane suburbs recorded rent rises above inflation (4.8%) over the 12 month period.

The list only includes those suburbs where RUN has sufficient data to give an indication of rental movement.

The rental component within the CPI recorded a 4.8% increase during the 2011 calendar year, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
