  • Identification of potential target markets and an understanding of their specific expectations;
  • Analysis of competitor product;
  • Price pointing and target rental advice; and
  • Residential market and needs assessments.

Our team also has experience in market and need assessment of specialised forms of residential or short term accommodation related developments, including:

  • Aged care and retirement living;
  • Student accommodation;
  • Hotels, motels and short stay serviced apartments; and
  • Tourist parks.
