There are still some doomsayers out there trying to stop you from becoming wealthy.
And these "experts chasing a headline" are getting a lot of air play on social media telling us that property values are going to keep falling, possibly a total of 40%.
Some are suggesting Australia is in a debt bubble, others are worried there’s a major world recession around the corner or that we're heading for the same fate as Ireland.

Will the property doomsayers be right? | PROPERTY INSIDERS VIDEO
Watch as we discuss:
- If the world is in for a recession in the foreseeable future and how the US China Trade Wars may affect us
- Is Australia at risk of a recession?
- Even if we do have a recession would we really see house prices fall by 40%
- There is really no debt bubble in Australia
- Debt today just as serviceable as ever because of low interest rates
- Debt is in the hands of those who can service the loans due to more prudential lending.
- There are some green shoots appearing for our property markets including:
- APRA is removing its interest rate buffer – this will increase borrowing capacity for some people by 14%
- If RBA cuts twice this should increase borrowing capacity by 20% (with the APRA changes)
- 2 rate cuts would mean a significant change in people’s mortgage payments – a 12% reduction in payments
- A combination of the above will help those in mortgage stress
- Auction clearance rates are improving
- There is a deceleration in price falls
- Tax cuts are coming for many Australians
