Australian life is anchored around the home. Owning your own place is so intrinsic to our national psyche that it has long been called the Great Australian Dream. We’ve penned songs about a “home among the gum trees”, painted colorful airbrushed houses and, remarkably, even made a hit film about developers attempting to compulsorily acquire a man’s suburban castle.
While more than 70 years has passed since former Prime Minister Robert Menzies praised our desire for “one little piece of earth with a house and a garden which is ours,” home ownership remains the best expression of success and security in modern Australia.
And there have never been more issues surrounding home ownership than there are today, which is why we have started The Real Estate Conversation. Our conversation, a new and sophisticated take on the residential property market, takes place on a free daily newsletter called RECON Daily as well as TheRealEstateConversation.com.au.
We cover residential property in all its forms, and showcase the most desirable homes on the market across the nation. We are dedicated to keeping you informed about hot topics like foreign investment, interest rates, taxation and regulations with breaking news, exclusive data and blogs written by industry experts. We also profile the most successful and innovative members of the industry.
The Real Estate Conversation is published by SCHWARTZWILLIAMS in conjunction with the Real Estate Institute of Australia (REIA).
