Want to know what’s actually going on with Australia’s anxiety-inducing rental crisis 

Or where the market is really heading (based on insider’s data and knowledge?!)  

Well folks, we’ve got an extremely wise and exciting guest sitting on the couch today to share just this! Please welcome…. 

Eleanor Creagh!  

She is the Senior Economist at REA Group (the brains behind realestate.com.au) and is a trusted financial commentator.  

Specialising in property, financial markets and macroeconomic policy, she has a wealth of experience and knowledge within both domestic and international markets, and… 

She’s here to share all of this knowledge today!  

Here’s a sneak peek of the Q’s she’s tackling… 

👉 Is the Commuter belt boundary extending??
👉  Are we truly locked and loaded for a market crash
👉 Will Units vs. Houses be favourable in this cycle
👉 How do the experts identify we’re in a rental crisis and more importantly, how do we get OUT of one?!? 
👉 What is a realistic market forecast for 2022/23?
👉 How much further will interest rates really rise? 

 And so much more!!  

(Including how she made her life changing career jump, from studying Veterinary Medicine…and ended up in Australia!!)  

Tune in now to discover what the data reveals about today’s market, and where it’s really headed! 🤓
