Defence Australia

This is the first report of a study of the motivations of rental investors in Australia. The study aims to gain a better understanding of investors’ experiences, motives and actions, as well as the perceptions of investors’ behaviours among other key players in the rental sector. Tim Seelig, Terry Burke and Alan Morris provide the background to the study, and outline the research themes and questions to be pursued, and the methods employed, based on the original research proposal. The paper also positions the study within specific housing policy, housing market, and housing research contexts.
