Australian Housing

It’s easy to get caught up in all the hoopla when it comes to Australian housing.

How You Can Read the State of Australian Property

One way to get to the real story is to follow listed companies that are tied to the Australian housing market.

If housing is stretched then the first signs of stress will show up there as softening demand. And that softening demand will show up in the company price chart. Guaranteed!

House prices are meant to go up. It’s the sign of a genuinely productive economy, and we’d be in real trouble if they weren’t. This is not a magic formula. And it’s not something that just happens by chance. It is called the ‘Economic Rent’. First, the house itself is not what’s rising in value. It’s the land that it’s built on that is appreciating.
