Will property slow in 2015?

Fears are swirling that the housing market will be in for a difficult year ahead as policymakers look to curb growth. Triggers for them to act, however, haven't yet materalised.

Summary: Fears over the property market have intensified following two recent developments: the recently tabled Murray Inquiry and the APRA’s release shortly after. The common view is that these reports will weigh on property prices in 2015, especially in NSW and Victoria, where investor loans are a higher proportion of total lending, but this is misplaced. The triggers for APRA to think about further action are a long way away and no case could be mounted that the banks lack sufficient capital.
