    I disagree with his first point that the labour proposal of grandfathering existing negatively geared property will alleviate some nervousness from current owners. Such a large portion of buyers currently in the market are investors and labours proposal would essentially push a large amount of not in fact all investors out of the market for established houses. This would mean less competition for existing properties which of course means lower prices. So therefore when it comes time to sell or refinance all existing home owners, whether they be owner occupiers or investors will be getting a lower price for their existing properties than they would be with the current arrangement.
    This doesn’t just affect investors… It applies to anyone who currently owns a home.
