Dr Tony HayekLeave a comment

Australian property owners have undergone some testing times over the past 18 months. Buyer confidence has been beaten around by lending changes, leadership battles and chatter about our mythical “property bubble”. If you had read some of the reports leading up to the latest election you would have been certain that it was the end for the market. In reality, it’s nothing that we haven’t seen before.
