Certainty returns but what will bring confidence back?

posted in: Events, Industry events | 0

THE stunning victory of the LNP on the weekend will give much needed certainty back to the real estate market and earlier today APRA delivered some welcome news, proposing to ease serviceability requirements on lenders – but we continue to face challenges, so where to from here?

The threat of negative gearing reforms are behind us and this means stability is more likely – but it’s far from a gold plated guarantee.

Vendor confidence has been battered and as a result listings are down. Wages growth remains stagnant and Queensland’s unemployment remains stubbornly above the national average.

And the traditional strongholds of growth on the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast are facing some volatility.

Our market is undoubtedly in the midst of a shift.

What does that mean for the principal and business owner? Where are the opportunities in these changing conditions? What do you need to do to shore up resources in your business to weather the coming shift?

The REIQ Property Insiders event will bring together experts who will share insights and knowledge about factors influencing the SEQ market.

Michael Pascoe

One of the country’s leading political and financial commentators Michael will unpack where we go from here following the federal election result. We’ll look at what’s likely for our State Labor Government following the state’s swing to the right and how this will impact our real estate market.

Michael will also take us on a deep dive into the financial angles and what it means when APRA eases its serviceability floor. How much of an impact will that have on lending practices in real terms? Will that move result in more buyers in our market?

Michael is a regular contributor to The New Daily and has been offering insights into the finance and political landscapes for more than three decades. His views are well respected across the media landscape.


Adrian Schrinner

Meet our new Lord Mayor and hear the latest news about the new projects that are changing the face of Brisbane. Where are the areas of growth and what are the opportunities?

Adrian Schrinner took over the role of Lord Mayor in April 2019. Despite being one of Brisbane’s youngest ever Lord Mayors he came to the role with significant experience, having previously served as Deputy Mayor for eight years, and as a Councillor since 2005.

Before becoming Lord Mayor, Cr Schrinner was the Chair of Council’s Public and Active Transport Committee. In this role, he had special responsibility for managing the Brisbane Metro project and ensured that the project was fully funded.

Cr Schrinner lives in the suburb of Carindale with his wife Nina and their four young children.  Both as Lord Mayor and as a dad, his goal is to ensure the Brisbane of tomorrow is better than the Brisbane of today.  A big part of his agenda is building the infrastructure our city needs as it grows and protecting our fantastic lifestyle and green space.

“To do that effectively you need to know what’s happening in a very detailed way – getting the right information and the right advice is the start.”
