Everyone is talking about a rise in real estate prices, no one is talking about the rise in rental prices that yields a great return for real estate investors
Data from the 2nd hand review published in the press last month (April 19, 2022) show that rental prices in Israel jumped in the first quarter of the year by a maximum of 19% compared to the corresponding quarter in 2021.
The increase in rent for 3-4 room apartments, according to published data, is evident in almost all of the top thirty cities in the country except in a few individual cities.
The city where rental rates for 4 rooms have skyrocketed is Tel Aviv. According to Yad2 review data as published in the press, the rent of 4-room apartments in Tel Aviv jumped by 19% to an average of NIS 9,800 per month in the first quarter of the year compared to the corresponding quarter in 2021.
Other cities that led in the list of increases in rental prices for 4 rooms are Rosh HaAyin, Ramat Hasharon and Afula. Followed by the list, Herzliya, Ramat Gan, Tiberias and Hadera.
The main reason for the significant increase in rental prices lies in the continuing gap between demand and supply in real estate. Due to the difficulty in buying an apartment when real estate prices are steadily rising, many people turn to the alternative of rental housing. Thus, in turn, the demand for rented apartments also increases, thus raising rental prices. Similar to the limited supply of apartments for sale, the supply of apartments for rent is also limited. The wave of immigration to Israel from Ukraine following the war with Russia, creates additional demand for rental apartments and therefore the expectation is that rental prices will continue to rise.
