Mortgage & rent

Proportions are calculated using all tenure types for occupied private dwellings. This excludes visitor only and other non-classifiable households.

Rent weekly payments Mount Barker (SA) % Mount Barker (SA) South Australia % South Australia Australia % Australia
Median rent 270 -- 220 -- 285 --

Households where rent payments are 30%, or greater, of household income -- 13.8 -- 9.3 -- 10.4
