BTR In the Regions

15 Minute Listen


Pacific Build-to-Rent, or BTR, is at an early stage of emergence. While most Build-to-Rent developments to date have focused on major cities, data from our recent report series ‘Build-to-Rent in the Regions’ has shown that different regional locations within Australia and New Zealand have factors that are supportive of local development.

In this episode of Talking Property we discuss how regional BTR is likely to evolve in the future, explore the driving forces behind this growth and how a BTR asset in a regional location differs from those in the city.

Hosted by Tamba Carleton, Associate Director CBRE Research, New Zealand with special guests Craig Godber Associate Director, Head of Residential Research, Australia and Natasha Sarkar, Director of Structured Transactions & Advisory in New Zealand.
