How Varying Bedroom Layout Affects Rent

Rental values are influenced by a large variety of factors, an important factor being the layout of bedrooms within the property.


We recently rented two properties in Newtown that were very similar in house design, the only difference being in one property 3 bedrooms were separated by a bathroom or hallway, unlike the other property, which had 3 bedrooms all directly next to each other. This slight variance in house design resulted in the first property being let for $100 more in rent than the other property.


Our experience in Wellington has shown us that houses with similar house designs and location do not necessarily receive the same rent. The layout of bedrooms in the overall house design can be a significant factor that influences the properties rent value and profitability, as tenants usually prefer bedrooms to be separated by other rooms or a hallway to reduce noise and allow more privacy.


We find the 3 aspects of bedroom design that most affects rent are size, equality of size and separation.
