Grant Dusting from McCrindle (Or as they like to call him Stat Man) joined Kirste and Dan to discuss 3 of the top trends for 2022!

1. Growing Regional Populations
Perth and Brisbane have been the fastest-growing cities in the past 2 years. “Perth and Brisbane 2 great lifestyle cities. A lot of people in Melbourne and Sydney have been in lockdown for the past 2 years.” Nationally, we have had the lowest population growth for decades because the international border has been closed. But the population in regional areas has been booming.

2. Intentional Lifestyle
Covid has created a forced reset for a lot of people.
Working from home has offered them more flexibility and convenience. “Employers are battling with the expectation that this is the new normal.”
People can set their lifestyle the way they want not working around other expectations.

3.Revenge Spending
Throughout the last 2 years of restrictions, lots of people have subdued their spending. But a lot have more savings, from not going on holidays, that they’ve been spending elsewhere. “Instead of going out to dinner as often…They might be doing it less often but they might have dessert as well.”

2 in 3 people say spending time with loved ones is what motivates them to splurge on lavish expenses.
