The Australian property development landscape is a vibrant and challenging business environment that at times can seem too “fast and furious”. Despite the property market’s volatility, the industry continuously invites both seasoned investors and brave souls to venture in its ‘highs’ and ‘lows’. The market is affected by a myriad of factors at any point in time, some of which are semi-predictable – such as decisions relevant to the timing, acquisition costs, marketing, value optimisations and consultant hiring process in preparation for a property sale.  Despite our best efforts to account for them, the property market will always be plagued with unpredictable factors such as shifting policies on government property regulation, taxation, inflation and consumer confidence etc.  

Property developers are often misunderstood by the community to be a grubby and unscrupulous bunch whose sole aim is to make a profit. However, this biased view could not be further from the truth. Not many can appreciate the magnitude of risks and challenges that a competent property developer has to overcome in order to provide a quality, affordable and sustainable housing supply to the community at large.

This is where the Australian Property Developers Association (APDA) Inc comes to play. The organisation was established a decade ago by a handful of young and emerging property developers, industry insiders and professionals, that has since grown to encompass over a thousand guests and members. Today, APDA has played host to some of the most well-known names and brands in the local property development community.

The organisation aims to represent emerging, up-and-coming property developers and professionals who see value in community networking, exchanging information and friendly collaboration amidst an ever-challenging landscape. APDA also aims to represent the property development industry when it comes to influencing state and federal government policies whilst maintaining ethical standards of operation amongst its members.

As a testament of its value and contribution to the community, APDA Inc. is supported and sponsored by some of the most well-known brands both within and external to the property and development sector. Some of these involve CBRE, Urbis, Pitcher Partners, Best Hooper Lawyers, Payton, DLX Creative and your contemporary luxury publisher, EZ Australia.

澳大利亚房地产开发行业作为充满活力和富有挑战性的领域,有时势头似乎过于“快速和猛烈”。尽管房地产市场容易出现剧烈波动现象,但该行业不断邀请经验丰富和奋进的投资者在其“高点”和“低点”进行投资。而不管处于任何时间点,市场都会受到无数因素的影响,其中某些状况是可以事先部分预测,比如与时机、收购成本、营销、价值优化相关,还有为房地产销售准备的顾问雇佣流程推行的决策。不过,即使尽了最大的努力来解析和算计,但房地产市场总是会受到一些无法预计因素的困扰,比如政府针对房地产监管政策的转变、税收、通胀和消费者信心等。

房地产开发商经常被社会误解为无下限且不择手段的群体,他们最终目的就是利益至上。然而,类似偏见的观点与事实相去甚远。没有多少人能意识到,一个具备实力的房地产开发商必须克服巨大的风险和挑战,方能为整个社区提供优质、经济和拥有可持续性的住房供应。

这就是澳大利亚房地产开发商协会公司(APDA Inc.)发挥作用的地方。该协会组织成立于10年前,由少数年轻和新兴的房地产开发商、业内和专业人士组成。该组织目前已飞速发展到拥有1000多名客户和成员。今天,APDA已接待当地房地产开发社区中一些成功且知名的品牌。

该组织的目标是代表新兴、前景备受看好的房地产开发商和专业人士,他们认为在社区网络、互换信息和挑战迭起的环境中,友好合作体现无限的价值。APDA也旨在代表房地产开发行业影响州和联邦政府的政策,同时维持其成员的道德运营标准。

而作为对社区价值和贡献的证明,APDA也得到房地产和开发行业内外一些高认知度品牌的支持与赞助。其中包括世邦魏理仕(CBRE)、Urbis、Pitcher Partners、Best Hooper Lawyers、Payton,DLX Creative以及奢华格调杂志《御智澳大利亚》出版方。
