The Build to Rent (Multi-family) sector is expected to take off in Australia.
In a win for developers, the NSW government recently announced land tax will be cut by 50% over 20 years.
The Build to Rent model is expected to diversify the existing housing mix, provide more affordable housing and benefit the growing number of Australian renters.
With further regulatory changes proposed, developers are seizing the opportunity to become first-movers in Australia’s up-and-coming asset class.
Investors, recognising the unique position of the Australian market, are seeking viable projects.
