The effects government policies have on the housing market
Promises by the government to further manipulate the housing market in favour of first home buyers are causing angst and concern in parts of the investor community. Is any of that anxiety warranted? To what extent is our property market ripe for manipulation by one single force? Can the action of rational investors counter political agenda?
CoreLogic Senior Research Analyst Kelvin Davidson talks about the effects government policies have on the housing market through the lens of historical market figures.
It has often been said that though history doesn’t repeat itself, it certainly rhymes. At this session, Kelvin will unpack how the property market reacted to the following policies:
- Removal of tax depreciation on building 2010/2011 FY
- Ringfencing 2019/2020 FY
- LVR restriction v.1 2013
- (Temporary) removal of LVR restriction 2020
- Healthy Homes Standards 2018
Kelvin will also make some brief comments around to what extent can future policies' (such as DTI) impact on the housing market be predicted.
