2022 was a year of challenges and opportunities for Australia’s emerging build-to-rent (BTR) sector. The year has seen the completion and lease of several developments, plus the commencement of new projects, all against a backdrop of a rapidly tightening rental market.

Developers also faced pressure on feasibilities as a result of rising construction and finance costs. Investors and operators in the sector should benefit from several competitive advantages over the coming year as momentum will certainly grow.
