Real Estate Investment in Australia


Australia continues to be viewed as a destination of choice for global real estate investors seeking a safe haven in a well-regulated and highly transparent growth-orientated market for doing business. In addition, the Australian real estate market remains favourably priced when compared to other developed core real estate markets in the United States and Europe.

Whilst real estate markets globally were severely affected by the Global Financial Crisis and the economic turmoil that followed, Australia has performed well across most sectors and is widely viewed as a stable market offering discerning foreign investors historically favourable pricing. Compared to many of their home markets, Australia offers investors exposure to one of the few economies, globally, to be on a growth trajectory. This recognition has led to an increasing number of new foreign investors entering the Australian real estate market, to the point that foreign sourced capital is now the dominant source for Australian real estate investment.

As a well-regulated, stable and transparent market, Australia offers a platform that allows new foreign investors to embrace the globalisation of real estate capital with confidence.

As global capital is shifting with even more speed and volume between sectors and markets, we at DLA Piper are where our clients want to be.
