The Urban Developer’s Annual 2018 Market Outlook


Australia’s property sector experienced a number of significant changes in 2017, prompting mainstream media frenzy with the three B’s: booms, busts and bubbles.

With credit constraints, supply pressure, affordability and interest rates dominating headlines, where does it leave the industry in 2018?

The Urban Developer would like to invite you to attend an expert market briefing with two of Australia’s most respected economists to present the outlook for the economy and property markets in 2018.

One of Australia’s leading economists, MacroPlan founder and executive chairman Brian Haratsis will present on the global and domestic economic outlook for 2018-19, delivering a macroeconomic perspective that identifies the key drivers of growth and the major risk factors for the property sector.

REA Group chief economist Nerida Conisbee will draw on unprecedented data to deliver her annual property market outlook. Nerida will explore the changing state of major metropolitan markets, the key factors driving buyer demand and where opportunities and risks lie within the residential sector.

Following both presentations, Brian and Nerida will join Adam Di Marco, founder and publisher of The Urban Developer to explore the trends, opportunities and challenges that will impact the property industry in 2018.
