Citizen-led Joint Venture Developments

Property Collectives is a collaborative development model that brings people together to build new homes at cost. Our Advisory team helps members of each building group work collectively to increase group buying power.  We provide a more affordable alternative for people to own great homes in great locations.

Our Aim

We want to make well designed quality homes more affordable.

Our aim is to create buildings with architectural and environmental integrity that we can all be proud of and in doing so generate real financial and social capital for members of each collective.

To achieve this we seek to work with people who want to invest in quality design and are committed to openness and collaboration.

Join the next Property Collectives project

The Property Collectives model is similar to the German Baugruppen  (“self-build” or “building group”) model which allows future owners to assume the role of the developer and co-develop together.

Our transparent and participatory approach allows Collective members to stay in control of the design & build of their homes, and buy in locations that they otherwise might not be able to afford.

We are always looking for like-minded people who want to join upcoming projects throughout Melbourne.


How We Can Help

Home Buyers

We give home buyers an affordable way to take control over the location, design and quality of your future home.

If you are dissatisfied with the type of housing that the traditional speculative model of development delivers, then participating in an alternative model of “deliberative” or collaborative development may be for you.


For investors who are interested in the development of quality long term assets, we provide a less capital intensive way to access projects in prime locations.



For developers, architects & builders looking for an alternative way to realise projects, we are open to collaborating with values aligned organisations to assist in delivering your project.

Land Owners

If you are a land owner looking to unlock the potential of your property, we can help you determine the best strategy for your situation and pull together a team to help you design, fund and build your project.
