Government regulation largely insulates and reinforces the prices in Australia – primarily through planning laws.
Unrestricted planning laws would definitely be the biggest threat to most investors in Australia.BennyModerator@bennyJoin Date: 2002Post Count: 1,416
This has been the most interesting poll thus far.
Even at the time of creation, I wondered if we should have an “All of the above” button. As of right now, four out of the five options are ranking between 22% and 28%.
Certainly several things are having (or could have) a major impact on real estate values. Perhaps it depends on which headline is screaming loudest that day?
For the record, here are the values as of today:-
Which of the following most threatens the future of Australian real estate values?
Government regulation …….. 25%, 58 votes
An oversupply of housing …. 22%, 52 votes
Higher interest rates ………… 22%, 51 vote
Economic trouble overseas . 28%, 65 votes
International war ………………. 3%, 8 votes

Government regulation – clamping down on international investors, talks about reversing negative gearing
Oversupply of housing – apartment markets are in oversupply in Sydney and Melbourne
Higher interest rates – cash rate may go lower but not likely to be followed on by banks, in fact banks are pushing them up for investors.
Economic trouble overseas – China’s economy slowing and stockmarket crash and some large European banks going down.
International war – Turmoil in Syria and escalating wars.
I’d say all of the above is equal to… KABOOOM!! to the real estate market.maccParticipant@maccJoin Date: 2016Post Count: 14
