There are a few regular events in the Australian calendar; leadership spills in Canberra, the Melbourne Storm reaching a grand final and the media panicking everyone with stories about a property crash.

Recently both 60 Minutes and 7.30 have run features on the property market, much of which ran negative lines about the property market.

As per usual, national TV channels ran stories which showed little differentiation in each state’s market.  In truth, while Sydney and Melbourne have enjoyed boom times, Perth has been in a recession.  And while it has not hogged the headlines, Hobart has arguably outperformed the lot.

Many economists criticised the programmes for unrealistically negative approaches and using a one-size fits all approach.

Sure, many experts see Melbourne and Sydney as overvalued.  But few are predicting a crash and others are predicting growth away from the east coast capitals.

Recently Moody’s noted that Sydney house values rose 12.8 per cent in 2017, and are forecast to fall 5.1 per cent in 2018 before a “slow recovery” in 2019.  Moody’s also said apartment values are set to decline more slowly, down 0.2 per cent in 2018, followed by a slow recovery in 2019.
