Spotlight | Property Forum #back2thefuture

Property and economics are often cyclical in nature. For this reason, experts often use the past to predict a future outlook. However, with global disruption, the level of uncertainty has increased drastically, with many experts uncertain if we can look back to predict our future.

For this reason, we brought renowned property industry experts together to take a deep dive into the changing landscape in Australia, the impact this has on the future for property and what people and businesses should be considering in order to prepare.
