SYDNEY AT RISK OF ‘HOUSING BUBBLE’ WARNS UBS

Brace yourself…the Sydney property market is housing bubble set to burst.

Well that’s what the media have been saying over the last week following the recently released UBS Global Real Estate Bubble Index which analyses the risk of housing bubbles in global financial centres and places Sydney as fifth riskiest.

ACCORDING TO THE REPORT:

“(Sydney) “real” house prices shot up 12% in the last four quarters and are now 60% higher than in 2012.

“The dip in prices in 2015–16 proved short-lived… Incomes increased by a meager 2% in inflation adjusted terms.

“Tax breaks and interest-only loans are whitewashing the worsening affordability for the time being.”

BANK BLACKLISTS 100 BRISBANE SUBURBS

Another bank has come out with a Black List of Suburbs where they are restricting lending

Nervous lenders have growing concerns about over-supply of high rise apartment at a time of falling prices and restrictions on foreign buyers.

Most of the big banks have announced tougher measures, with lower LVR’s and requiring evidence of rental cash flows and implementing tougher valuationcriteria.

Adelaide Bank has introduced the requirements that apartments have their own bathrooms, kitchens, laundries and windows in key rooms, such as bedrooms and lounge rooms.

Of course, this makes sense – after all these are basic requirements in Australia – aren’t they?

HOW MUCH MONEY IS ENOUGH?

How will you know when you are rich?

How much money is enough?

When I was young I wanted to be a millionaire by the age of 30.

One million dollars was a lot of money then.

By the way… I didn’t make it – I wasn’t a millionaire by 30, but I did own a significant multimillion-dollar property portfolio by the time I was 40.

However, $1 million today isn’t what it was back in my youth.

PROPERTY DEVELOPMENT GUIDE PART 5 – FINANCING YOUR PROJECT

Before you commence any development project, it is obviously crucial to first establish how much you can borrow and how you will be able to manage all associated costs of the development.

As a property developer you will have to understand finance and what the banks look for when lending for development projects.

Lenders look after their own safety first so when deciding whether to finance your project they will assess the risk, firstly with regard to you as an individual and your ability to repay the loan, and then on the viability of the development itself.

THERE’S REASONS FOR OPTIMISM WITH THE: HOUSING BOOM AND BUST REPORT

Australia’s housing market will likely record moderate dwelling price rises in 2018, which will beat a slower rate than the price gains in 2017, led by a slowdown in Sydney.

SQM Research’s base case forecast is for capital city dwelling prices to rise between 4% to 8% in 2018, which would represent a fall from a growth rate of approximately 8.5% over the past 12 months to 30 September 2017.

The rate of property price increases will be slower in 2018, predominantly due to a slowdown in the Sydney housing market, which should continue into the first half of the year.
