Episode 202 | We warned you to Prepare for Winter… Did You?

Over 2 ½ years ago, waaay back on Episode 66, we warned you that Winter Was Coming…

The question is folks… did you prepare?

We really hope you did. Because if you caught ABC’s three-part 7:30 Report this week or you read the OECD Housing Report that came out on Monday, then you’ll know that the Australian housing market isn’t the flavour of the month at the moment.

We’ve all seen that the property market come off its peak, and this, combined with the credit crunch following APRA’s lending restrictions and the Banking Royal Commission, as well as the proposed changes to Negative Gearing and Capital Gains Tax has spread a ripple right across market sentiment.

In other words, you could say… Winter is here.

So, today we’re diving into what’s unfolding with housing prices and what we’re likely to see happen in the property market from here. To help with this, we’re revisiting what we discussed 2 ½ years ago — Episode 066 | Winter is coming and the air will be colder up high.

And folks, the similarities between what we said then to what we’re seeing now just might shock you! Those who acted early and pulled out the umbrella won’t be surprised.

BUT the real question is: what does all this mean for you and the future of investing in property?

Or do you simply want a straight answer to “What the heck is going on in the property market right now?”

We’ve got you covered.

 

Here’s the wild ride you’re in for…

RBA Dec 2018 Announcement – Stock Market Corrections

It’s the first Tuesday of the month Ben… which means the RBA Board has met and announced the official cash rate!

Ben’s update today focuses on not only the cash rate, but on the biggest story of the last six weeks as well… the stock market corrections!

Plus, Ben explains why Scott Morrison’s latest announcement signals the timing of the upcoming election, and how this will impact the economy moving forward.

So… for the last Cash Rate announcement of 2018, what will be RBA’s decision on the cash rate?

Most namely the biggest story of the last six weeks, and certainly into November, has been the stock market corrections that we’ve seen around the globe on the fears of a slowing global economy. You can also factor in the spike that the US economy had and the US share market had through the lower tax rates introduced by Donald Trump. So we’ve got that as a backdrop, but also the share market has also lost confidence because of the trade wars that are going on.

Interestingly, over the weekend China and the US met and they’ve put a truce in place — well, it’s short term so it might be a false dawn, but we have a truce in place — which means the US aren’t going to increase their tariff percentages and China has promised to buy a significant amount of US goods.

What has that meant? Well, we’ve definitely seen the stock market have a very, very good couple of days and that’s potentially put some confidence back into the broader stock market, and hopefully the broader economies around the world. But it is short term; we need to get through this Christmas period, which is going to see some significant changes.

RBA Nov 2018 Announcement – When Will RBA Move Rates?

Hello folks, as promised, we’ll be posting Ben’s short commentary on the RBA Cash Rate Decision on a regular basis!
Let us know if you like this segment below! 🙂

So, on this Melbourne Cup Tuesday, what will be RBA’s decision on the cash rate?

Let’s start with some positive news! The seasonally adjusted unemployment rate has unexpectedly dropped to 5% in September 2018, the lowest job rate since April 2012 while markets estimated 5.3%. But what about wage growth?

Ben will be unpacking how this will be affecting the RBA’s decision to move the cash rate, which had been at 1.5% since August 2016. And of course, a bit of an update on the equity and property market as well!

There’s still buying opportunities in that particular market; but you’ve got to be very, very careful in terms of where you’re buying. So stick to the fundamentals and focus in on where you’ll get that good return over time.
