I’m joined by Lailani Burra, CEO of. Id, who offers an eye-opening perspective on Australia's future property investment, urban planning, and lifestyle in the next 25 years.

Lailani’s team has just dropped a bombshell of a report that's going to shake up how we think about investing, living, and planning for the next 25 years.

We're talking 7.4 million more Australians, two million new homes, and a seismic shift back to urban living—all by 2041.

Her report gives us the inside track on how Australia’s future will unfold. Get ready to take a deep dive into what Australia will look like for decades to come.

Shaping Australia's urban future

Highlights from my chat with Lailani:

  • The background of .Id, or Informed Decisions Big Australia
  • The headline numbers: Lailani's team has projected an increase of 7.4 million Australians
    • This will require 2 million new homes and a shift towards urban living by 2041
    • Two-thirds of Australia’s population growth in the next two decades will be concentrated in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, and Perth.
  • Population growth is primarily driven by net overseas migration which will significantly shape Australia's capital cities in the next two decades
  • COVID-19 pandemic's impact on regional areas
    • People didn’t move to regional areas during lockdown as much as they simply didn’t leave.
    • These areas normally experience a net loss of young people to cities.
    • Because they couldn’t leave during the pandemic lockdowns, the population appeared to grow.
  • Comparing contrasting responses from Tasmania and the Sunshine Coast to migration trends. Immigration3
  • The importance of robust infrastructure in urban planning, with a specific emphasis on the need for reliable public transportation in metropolitan areas.

This episode paints a picture of what the next quarter-century could look like for Australia in terms of property investment, urban living, and planning.
