Jan 24, 2022

As we start a new year it’s interesting to look back and reflect on the challenging year we experienced in 2021, and how well the Australian economy and Australians in general have survived.

It wasn’t really that long ago that there were credible predictions that tens of the thousands of Australians would lose their lives, the health system wouldn’t cope, there would be mass unemployment and the economy would fall into an abyss.

But fortunately, 2021 finished with our economy in recovery mode, and throughout the year we experienced a once in a generation property boom with our property markets breaking multiple records and finishing at record high levels.

Last year the number of suburbs where the median house price is more than $1 million has doubled, as a have the number of suburbs where the median price is over $3milion and the average Australian household is wealthier than they ever have been.

No doubt there are challenges ahead, but there’s also lots of good news to start off the year and that’s what I discussed with Dr Andrew Wilson, chief economist of My Housing Market, in a 90 minute online live Masterclass at the end of the year.

And the feedback I received after the event was amazing – I’ve never had as many people during event leave such positive comments in the chat room or as many positive emails afterwards, so I thought I must share this with you as a subscriber to my podcast.

This particular episode of my podcast is much longer than usual because Dr Wilson gave so much great information, but it’s not the whole event.

But it’s definitely worth staying to the end to hear Dr Wilson is forecast for property around Australia for 2022.

If you happened to be on that event, I think it’s worth listening to the gold that Dr Andrew gave us once again, and if you weren’t at the event I suggest after listening you going to the live webinar replay where you can see many of the charts that Andrew and I discussed. I’ll leave a link in the show notes.

Some of the Topics Discussed in Dr Andrew Wilson’s Presentation
