To wrap up our 2024 property predictions series, we chat with Aware Real Estate’s Michelle McNally and Aliro Group’s David Southon. 

They give us their views on the best property market opportunities this year and the areas ripe for transformation. 

The tailwinds in residential and the opportunities being presented by supply challenges, immigration and a growing economy are among the topics up for discussion. 

You can find links below to the other two episodes in this series, featuring Charter Hall’s David Harrison, CBRE Investment Management’s Alex Crossing, Lendlease’s Dale Connor, ISPT’s Chris Chapple, Brookfield’s Leonie Wilkinson and Investa’s Pete Menegazzo.
