What’s ahead for the Australian property market

April 24, 2018

After five years of unprecedented growth in house prices in some of Australia’s largest cities, many investors are more exposed to residential property values than ever before. Others who may be looking to buy a first home or investment property are hopeful price growth has moderated.

In our latest podcast, NAB Chief Economist Alan Oster discusses the key takeaways from the latest NAB Residential Property Survey report, which condenses the views of hundreds of property experts from around the country.

In this episode, Alan covers:

  • Both positive and negative sentiment in the current housing market
  • The likely composition of new property buyers over the next year
  • The outlook for house and apartment prices, and rents across major cities
  • Potential implications of proposed policy changes by Labor on domestic house prices, and
  • ‘Black swan’ events that could rock the sector.
