382 | “Property Investors are Tired of Being the ATMs for the State!” – Chat with Antonia Mercorella

Queensland has been through A LOT folks.  

With the 2022 floods estimated to cost $2.5B in damage and more than 5,000 homes inhabitable, in the words of today’s podcast guest Antonia Mercorella: 

“We are facing a humanitarian crisis in Queensland”  

 Together, we’ll be unpacking the housing crisis that Queenslanders are waking up to every day, how this added demand will impact the states ALREADY struggling rental system… 

AND how REIQ and Q Shelter’s “Help House a Queenslander” campaign can help with the ongoing housing crisis! 

And if the name Antonia Mercorella sounds familiar to you – we’re proud to say it’s because she’s a returning guest from Episode 280!!  

Antonia is not only the Chief Executive Officer at the Real Estate Institute of Queensland (REIQ), but she’s an accomplished CEO and solicitor with more than 20 years of experience across the real estate and property sectors!  

But don’t get us wrong – when we say Queensland’s been through a lot, it’s not all bad!  

We’ll be unpacking it from the top, starting with the pandemic when Brisbane’s property market was HOT, and exploring what lifestyle drivers push people to move interstate!  

And let’s just say that Antonia makes a very convincing case to move to the Sunshine State 😉 (Hey, we’re halfway to packing our bags). 

We’ll also be looking at the State Government’s announcement to potentially introduce land taxes and why it’s a terrible idea!!!  

So if you’re interested in what this all means for the future of Queensland’s property market (and the wider Australian market), tune in now!!
