Harnessing opportunities to advance and develop the Build to Rent sector in Australia

Melbourne |  Tuesday, 28th August  

 
 
Taking place in Melbourne on the 28th August, the Build To Rent Forum brings together developers, investors and the property sector to explore opportunities and overcome challenges in advancing the Build-to-rent sector in Australia.
 
The Build-to-rent sector is emerging as a $300b market in Australia. Well-established in the US and UK, this asset class could very well offer a solution to the current affordable housing crisis. 
 
Australia’s growing population will require a greater diversity of housing and a healthy build-to-rent sector will not only increase the supply of housing, it will also provide more secure tenure for renters.
 
There are currently 2.5 million rental homes in Australia and this is set to grow in the next few years. With Build-to-rent gathering real momentum and the mass of institutional funds waiting to enter the market, now is the time to explore ways to overcome the major challenges and maximise opportunities in the sector.
