This rental market information has been created with human resource professionals in mind, to ensure that they have timely and accurate data on-hand, that will guide them through the crucial decisions involved in employee relocation. This information will help human resource departments to make the best possible decisions about individual employee house rent allowance allocations, and other important factors within employee relocations.

The key benefit of our rental property data is the range of information it covers.

The Perth Rental Allowance Matrix provides the same depth of information on other key areas of Perth, including East and West Perth, as well as surrounding suburbs such as City Beach, Como and Nedlands. By extending the information beyond inner city Perth, HR departments can compare various areas and suburbs to find the right fit for their assignees and their relocation budget.
