Will Labor’s policies kill the property market? [Think Tank video]

What will happen to house prices when Labor gives Negative Gearing the flick?

With the odds shortening for a Shorten government,  Labor’s plan to remove negative gearing has many people worried?

So today we discuss what Labor’s proposed changes to property taxes will do to our real estate markets.

And the effects are likely to be significant.

In fact there’s no doubt Labor’s policies are already adversely affecting housing demand.

By now you should know that our regular think tanks are educational – not salesy.

This is one of our ongoing series of educational workshops – just another way we’re trying to help build an informed community of investors and entrepreneurs.

    Hi Michael
    In regards to Labour wanting to change Negative Gearing, i believe this wont happen, as a great majority of investors are in this mode.
    It’s bad enough that there is a downturn in property, but to destroy the economics eould be disastrous, not to mention the ramification to other relative industries.
    Property is the core.. in many ways for government, and income for investors to use for retirement..i can go on forever..It wont happen..

      Noel – what you say makes sense – a logical politician wouldn’t do ot – the problem is they have big egos

    The results in the Wentworth bi-election point to a LNP blood-bath in the next general election. It’s electors in swing electorates that matter.

    Great podcast
    I doubt Shorten will make a decision based on economic fundamentals. It will be an opinion poll based decision that attracts the most votes and appeases the feral/noisy minority in the media and those on socal media.

    Speculating about what could or not could happen without base, only creates fear in your constituents. It does not help your business. That is history, Labor would not want to destroy their golden eggs, the politicians are the biggest “negative gearing” users.

      Hilda Thanks for leaving your comments and you’re correct Labor should not want to kill the Golden Goose, but politicians are NOT rational.
      By the way…my thaoughts are not specualtion – they’re based on research by Riskwise, the MBA and the HIA –
