Australias overheating property market gradually lost steam in 2018 due to investors feeling jittery along with foreign capital outflows. Although falling property prices are good news for Australian buyers who have been priced out over the past few years, the current economic environment is pushing the market on the defensive. Business confidence is falling, influenced by uncertain ties in the greater global economic atmosphere. While this has not yet affected consumer confidence, the pressure will certainly be felt in the near term. With this in mind the next few years will be challenging for the Australian lending market.
