In recent years the Australian property market has experienced extraordinary growth, particularly on the eastern seaboard. Whilst there are a number of factors to consider, the primary reason is there is substantial local and foreign capital that consumers want to invest.
Over the past 24 months residential growth has been strong and the industrial sector has been extremely competitive. During this period we have also seen commercial properties have a resurgence due to low vacancy rates in certain markets.
We see the future of Australian property to continue to grow in a number of sectors in certain markets. In other less buoyant markets, opportunities continue to be taken on a longer term and often structured basis.
As markets and sectors evolve and change, clients require depth of experience, flexibility in thinking and exceptional value for money in identifying and dealing with risk. The size and depth of the HWL Ebsworth National Real Estate and Projects Group is particularly well placed in this regard.
