Description

The wave of commentary surrounding Australia’s residential development sector has reached record levels and many questions remain unanswered for the broader industry.

A recent Industry Sentiment Survey conducted by The Urban Developer found that the reality in boardrooms and construction sites across Australia differed substantially to the headlines that have been splashed across the nation’s media mastheads.

In one of the largest industry surveys ever undertaken in Australia, we sought to better understand the prevailing attitudes towards the cities, sectors and disciplines within the industry.

As the pressures of funding restrictions impact both developers and purchasers alike, and the industry braces for a slowdown in construction activity, we are now beginning to ask ourselves questions of survival rather than opportunity.


So, what did the survey results find and how can developers and the industry adapt and thrive in uncertain times?


The Urban Developer, in association with Development Finance Partners, is delighted to invite you to a unique and exclusive look into the sentiment underlying the property sector in 2017.

With a focus on the big factors looming on the horizon, such as the outlook for off-the-plan settlements, construction and purchaser funding, settlement valuations, construction pricing and site values, we will further delve into how the industry can manage risk and find opportunity in uncertain times.

The event will feature a detailed review of the results of the Industry Sentiment Survey followed by a panel discussion with industry experts from across development, research, finance and valuations into the implications on the ground.

This is a unique event that aims to dispel the media myths and provide attendees with a clearer understanding of the forces influencing the future of the residential development sectors in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

Networking drinks and food are included in ticket price.
