Welcome to our May newsletter. There will be a much awaited Budget presented next Tuesday evening, and so we will keep this newsletter relatively brief – there will be a lot to let you know about in coming weeks!
In recent months we have looked at rising residential property prices and wondered whether the rise is due to an excess of demand over (very low) supply. This month, we look at new data that tells us that supply is rising to meet demand – and prices are staying high.
Australia’s residential property market is really hotting up. Some analysts predict a 20% rise in prices over the 2021 and 2022 years. If February is anything to go by, this may well happen. Meanwhile, the share market tracked sideways during February. Read on to find out more.
Happy New Year! We hope the summer period has been treating you well and that 2021 has kicked off in the right direction for you. We start our year of monthly newsletters with an analysis of what happened in the residential property market in 2020 and a recap of events – some of them quite extraordinary – in world share markets in January 2021. Enjoy!
Welcome to the December newsletter, our last for the year. And what a year it has been! In this edition we take a deep dive into the performance of the Australian share market during 2020. In our first edition next year, we will look back on the impact of 2020 on residential property prices and ponder what 2021 might have in store.
Welcome to the November newsletter. This month we look at how Australian shares performed for the month of October, and also take a look at some really surprising news from the residential property markets. Oh, and there was this thing last month called the Budget. We have a good look at that, as well. Enjoy!
Welcome to the October newsletter. We are keeping things deliberately short and sweet this month, because next month’s newsletter promises to be a doozy! On the first Tuesday of October the Federal Government will hand down its Budget for the current financial year. The Budget was delayed due to the pandemic and we are extremely excited to see how the Commonwealth intends to address the economic impact of coronavirus. Watch this space and have a great month!
Happy spring! In this edition, we take a deep dive into the Australian share market, comparing it to the US and other global markets. We do this for one main reason: we are starting to see some separation opening up between the performance of shares on the US market and the performance of shares on the Australian market. This might actually be a very good thing.
The share market, interest rates and the residential property market. Not simple concepts, but in this our August newsletter we look at each of them in turn, paying particular attention to the impact that Melbourne’s resurgence in Coronavirus numbers might mean for them.
Welcome to our newsletter for July. This is also the newsletter in which we reflect on the month of June, which is of course the last month of the 2019/2020 financial year. And what a year it’s been! We have never seen anything like it - and we sincerely hope never to see anything like it again.
In this newsletter, we focus on the impact of the coronavirus on the two major investment markets: the sharemarket and the residential property market. We also look at some representative pieces of commercial property to examine the impact of the virus on the commercial property sector to date and the expected impact on that sector into the future.
We hope you enjoy the newsletter and we wish you all the very best for the financial year just commencing.
In this edition of our newsletter, we look at the continuing rise of the share market and ask, why? We also look at the early ‘Corona-impact’ on residential property prices and remind everyone that, if you want your child to have the best chance of being a number 1 draft pick in the American National Basketball Association, you should move to Melbourne before you give birth. Read on to see what we mean.
In this edition of our newsletter, we review all of the commonwealth stimulus that has been announced so far. We also take a look at both the share and the residential property markets. Both of these markets rose in the month of April. However, the one thing we can say with certainty is that April probably won’t tell us what will happen in May!
