RENTING has officially become even harder Australia-wide, with the release of a report confirming what people already knew.

The Rental Affordability Index 2017 published by National Shelter, Community Sector Banking and SGS Economics & Planning found that in regional NSW affordability has declined and remains the least affordable of the rest of state areas that were studied.

"The average household seeking to rent in regional NSW would face rent levels at 28 per cent of total income." the study said.

The Northern Star has compiled a list of rental properties across the local government areas that may help people looking for affordable housing. We hope you find something.
