In addition to high-density housing, Alice discussed low-interest rates, population growth, public transport and green living as listed below.

    • Low-Interest Rates • Expected to remain low for some quite some time – volatility to subside around high price growth as interest rates remain steady
    • Population Growth • Rise of the population in Australia will lead to further price growth
    • Public Transport • People to become more demanding of public transport – reduce the use of cars
    • High-density housing & larger apartments • Governments changing regulations associated with this level of construction – easier to develop this type of project.
    • Green Living • Energy-efficient dwellings to be a key focus in the next decade as people become more and more conscious of their contributions to climate change.
