The Sydney property boom is over? [Video]

The Sydney property boom is over.

Well there  – I said it! Sydney property market

But what should an investor do?

And what’s ahead for the Sydney property market?

Let’s face it, we receive so much conflicting information on a daily basis from so many different sources that at the end of the day you don’t know if your Arthur or Martha.

The reality is, if you don’t keep up with the media you are uninformed and if you do keep up with the media you are misinformed.

Seems like you can’t win.

So in today’s video I chat with Ahmad Imam, senior property strategist at Metropole in Sydney to learn about what’s really going on and what’s likley to be ahead.

You’ll learn why I’m pleased the boom is over plus lot’s more…

Some things to consider:

  • The Sydney market is fragmented (as it always has been) with “investment grade” properties still very much in demand
  • It’s normal to have mixed messages in the media when the market moves phases.
  • The deposit gap is a big challenge for buyers trying to get into the Sydney market as are the tighter lending criteria. Sydneysuburbs 496037222
  • Sydney is now a global city with a population of 5 million plus and as a result we are now starting to see it ‘Manhattanising’, and just like in Manhattan you can’t expect to purchase a big house on a big block, in the right location within your budget.
  • The last 4 -5 years in Sydney has seen unrealistic levels of growth – growth well into the double digits in most cases, and this has given many investors a false sense of confidence
  • Growth has been so strong that even secondary assets in secondary locations have seen growth over the past few years – and now that the Sydney market is taking a well-deserved breather you can no longer expect this growth going forward. There will now be a flight to quality – in other words good properties will still be in strong demand, but secondary properties will languish.

    Hi Michael

    I’m not sure property boom has ever been “over” the way you and other experts used to describe the property market. Is a contradiction when the property market in general is doubling every 10 years. As long as the property prices continue to double every 10 years property boom are “on hold” over a certain period and never over.

    Perhaps a different way describing the property is that historically property continues to boom and never “over”

    Your thoughts

      We’re playing with words a little – but to me a “boom” is a period of sudden economic growth, especially one that results in a lot of money being made and that stage of the cycle is over for a while
