Build-to-rent in Australia: Elevated opportunities as barriers clear

Australia’s build-to-rent (BTR) sector has undergone a period of rapid growth over the last couple of years. While to date the majority of projects have involved domestic participants, recent policy developments have set the scene for further global participation. Sector fundamentals are also improving, with robust expectations for rental growth and overseas migration in the near term. These factors point to a further acceleration within the sector and a strengthening of the development pipeline. In this webinar, we will discuss the Australian BTR sector’s place in the global market, the impact of recent policy changes, and the implications of broader residential market conditions.
