According to press releases this week, Aberdeen is one of the areas in the UK proving to be unaffordable for some families to rent in.
Having seen a growth in rental prices of over 7% in the past 12 months, it is no wonder why that is so.
Citylets reported average rents in Aberdeen being as follows:
1 bedroom - £631
2 bedroom - £879
3 bedroom - £1287
4 bedroom - £1995
However, according to Aberdeen Council 'Aberdeen city and Aberdeenshire have significantly higher proportions of households with income over £40,000 compared to the other key cities in Scotland and the Scottish average'.
In which case the high rents could be in correlation with incomes.
