Low Rates & Lax Lending Rocket for Australian Housing? | Webinar & Podcast

Our attention turns locally this week, as the country begins take stock of the coronavirus impacts and look to the future for drivers of Australia’s favourite asset class, property. 

As news breaks that lending standards are being relaxed and the Reserve Bank of Australia continues to pump freshly printed monopoly money into the economy through the new Term Funding Facility, the bull case for Aussie house prices strengthens, but is this going to be enough to get it back in the saddle?

With the easy demand tap of high international immigration still closed, and the prospect of economic armageddon through currently undisclosed insolvencies and high un-employment, the traditional drivers of house price growth are still absent, and tipped to be for the foreseeable future.

And so, the question remains, can government policy fire up and save Australian property demand internally against the present downside risks as the country looks to the post COVID future? Clearly a battle royale is ahead of us, as the nation looks on with interest.
