ABC News 24 – Property Bubble in Sydney and Melbourne?

Ben Kingsley has recently appeared as a guest on ABC News 24 – The Weekend Breakfast show. He has appeared on this show a couple of times but this time the main focus is on the Property Bubble in Sydney and Melbourne. First of all, is there a bubble? Ben has mentioned in Episode 14 that it’s not a bubble but more like a balloon. Also, he has created a free report and presentation on the Top 10 Suburbs in Sydney in 2003 and what happened to them in 2007 to help our listeners understand what he meant. In this show, he discuss further on our Treasury Secretary, John Fraser’s remark that Sydney is “unequivocally” in a property bubble, impact of the interest rate movement on Australia’s household borrowing power and loan servicing in the future. He also mentioned that the historically low interest rate at the moment will not last forever and will the Property Market crash as the interest rate starts to rise? Watch this video to find out more now.



We’ve just created a Free Resources section where we share some other advice and tips on top of the property investing podcast. Make sure to check it out regularly! And if you are liking this property investing podcast, please do leave us a review on our iTunes store or our Facebook.
