Some of our favorite quotes from the show:

“The concept of build-to-rent is that a development occurs, it's usually apartments, but it can, in fact, be a group of houses where the developer holds them in the long term, does not sell them, keeps them as long-term accommodation, and the government is giving them incentives to make that work.” – Michael Yardney

“The government has a business plan of growing our population to around 40 million people by the middle of this century. That's a huge increase. It's almost like building another Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane, so let's hope they get it right.” – Michael Yardney

“Delayed gratification is the key to the life of your dreams. Everything you want in your life is on the other side of something that sucks.” – Michael Yardney
