What will the property markets be doing for the rest of 2019?

And what can we expect to happen after 2019?

In today’s episode, I’ll be asking those questions of property researcher John Lindeman who joins us to talk about why he disagrees with many of the so-called experts predicting long-lasting house price falls and what he bases his analysis on.

During today’s mindset moment, we’ll talk about winners and losers and what one of the big differences is between them. It’s probably not what you think.

Finally, I’ll have a chat with Adam Nobel, a top selling agent in Brisbane, about how to choose a selling agent to sell your property. Understanding how selling agents work can help you whether or not you’re in the market to sell right now.

Some of the questions I asked John Lindeman

  1. Many so-called experts are predicting  long-lasting house price falls - as much as up to a further 25 to 30% in the next few years, but reading your commentary I see you don’t agree. Why is that?
    John's answer: After looking at all the indicators that have caused booms and busts to occur, what we’re looking at right now is not similar to the indicators that have caused large crashes in the past.
  2. Most experts make their housing predictions based on past performance because they believe the market will continue to perform in the future test in the past, but you have a different view. What are your forecasts based on?
    John's answer: Past performance can tell us a lot, but you also need to know what the main indicators are. You can use those to predict what’s going to happen.
  3. In a recent blog you made property forecasting easy – you boil it down to a simple equation. Could you please go through that with us?
    John's answerD
    emand is up (300,000 new residence from overseas and other states arrive in Brisbane Sydney and Melbourne each year) + Supply is down (housing investor finance fell and new dwelling approvals plunged) = Rental Crisis
  4. What happened in previous cycles we got to the stage where Capital growth slowed down or stopped?
  5. What do you see happening to our property markets moving forwards?
