Australian housing is expensive relative to incomes and rents. And household debt ratios are high. So yes, there is a risk of a sharp drop in property prices at some point. However, this is unlikely unless we see much higher interest rates or a surge in unemployment in the context of a recession. The foresight of the Reserve Bank and what has so far been a successful rebalancing of the economy in the face of the mining downturn mean that both of these scenarios seem unlikely at present. However, there is always a cycle – we’re going to see a 5-10% fall in property prices at some point in the next few years much like we did around the time of the global financial crisis and around 2012.
