Will the world stop spinning?

​​​​​​

RIGHT! What’s happening! What to expect! What to do!

  • Australian Federal Election 
  • Domestic political policy concern 
  • Domestic monetary policy concern 
  • European political and economic uncertainty 
  • Asian economic uncertainty ​​
  • US Election 
  • US central bank sentiment change 

We ALL know Newton’s Law – “Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.” Therefore the above has to mean something….right?

Absolutely! Both internationally and domestically there are tumultuous economic conditions at play and they will all have an effect. 

Here are my thoughts for the next 12 months:
  1. Increased inner suburb vacancy as a result of unit supply delivery: a. Downward pressure on inner city rentals; and b. Downward pressure on inner city values of primary and secondary units.
  2. Investment migration- regulatory commentary and economic conditions pushing southern money north to QLD.
  3. Healthy growth of freestanding housing with solid investment fundamentals (historical growth, yield, low vacancy rates, strong supply and demand).
  4. Consistent growth and yield within satellite cities (insulated from inner city supply changes).
  5. Increased pressure on RBA to lower interest rates further.
  6. Continued mortgage lending scrutiny from regulators.
  7. Subdued short term confidence.

The above might seem ominous and frightening, but it is important to note that every asset class has a similar rap sheet and mostly WORSE! 

We are experiencing a unique economic phase and I believe now more than ever property will REMAIN a dominant asset class and a sound investment. Although it is critical to be smart – the above can all be leveraged to your benefit. The days of naïve investments are gone!

If you want to know what is happening in the market, talk to an expert – BUY SMART!
