    Rental property demand's plummeting - in large part due to the cost of living


    Trade Me's May Rental Price Index reveals the median weekly rent's held steady at 650 dollars.

    Demand's dropped for a seventh consecutive month - down 30 percent on the year before.

    Property Sales Director Gavin Lloyd says demand usually tapers off in winter.
