Seeds sown for Australian apartment recovery

The outlook for the apartment sector has brightened over 2021. The latest data points suggest the sector has passed the trough. The return of investors, the reopening of the international border and an affordability-based shift toward apartments in some cities will underpin unit prices outpacing houses over the coming years. A strong pipeline of institutional programs, the impending completion of major new public transport links across Australia’s major cities, and an emergent build-to-rent sector further cement this rosy outlook.

Talking points:

  • The return of overseas migration is eagerly anticipated by many sectors…but when will it be?
  • What are the current levers helping to make apartment developments more viable?
  • Will the gulf between apartment and house prices continue to grow wider?
