Caboolture Tenant Profile



When you buy or lease an investment property in Caboolture, it is important to understand what your average tenant looks like:
  • over one third of rental applicants have pets
  • more than 90% own a vehicle and many want a double garage
  • there is only a small number of students applying
  • tenants who are employed have on average been in their job for 3 years

Given almost 40% of rental applicants own pets, it is highly beneficial for landlords to have a fully fenced back yard if you allow pets at your property.  Likewise, having a double garage or adding a covered car port can significantly increase the appeal of your property to tenants.
