Insights Event: Up, Down or Through the Floor: Where Are Development Site Values Heading?


Up, Down or Through the Floor: Where Are Development Site Values Heading?

will provide property developers, investors and professionals with an in-depth discussion with four of the key movers in Brisbane’s development industry.

Since the beginning of the year, a combination of a looming residential oversupply and dramatic changes to funding conditions, has quickly changed the outlook for property developers in the city.

Known as a trusted barometer for the overall direction of the property market, the demand for new development sites is a closely watched indicator for all developers and investors.
So what does this all mean for the value of development sites now and into the future?

Can all of the hype and headlines be believed? Or has the media simply gone too far?
To help us navigate through the on-the-ground reality, we will be joined by a first-class panel of Brisbane’s leading development advisors, agents and research experts for an interactive panel discussion that will cover:

  • What is the current demand for development sites in Brisbane and how has this changed in the past year?
  • How has the residential apartment boom impacted site values in both the urban and suburban markets?
  • How have rising construction costs impacted the financial viability of current and proposed supply?
  • What impact is the current funding environment having on demand for sites, property values and the proposed future supply?
  • What opportunities will exist in the next few years for cashed-up developers?
  • Where is the ‘smart money’ heading and have I missed the boat?
