2024 REIV Economic Forecast Lunch



The Outlook on Commercial Real Estate

While governments and media have been focusing on the housing crisis, commercial and industrial real estate in Victoria has been recording its own share of challenges.
New stamp duty laws, the introduction of the Commercial & Industrial Property Tax (CIPT), proposals to convert commercial buildings to homes and the continuing trend of hybrid work styles, are just some of the factors impacting the market.

At the 2024 REIV Economic Forecast lunch we have invited leading industry experts to share their views on the key trends and outlook for the Victorian commercial and industrial real estate market. We will also share an update on the housing objectives documented in Victoria’s Housing Statement.
