real-estate

The explosion of Australia’s mortgage debt is viewed by many economists and commentators as the key factor behind Australia’s unaffordable housing [and the primary] reason why Australia’s housing bubble is larger than that experienced in the United States in the mid-2000s. [Another factor is] the strangulation of fringe urban land supply via increasingly restrictive planning processes.

3%!  Simply amazing.  3% isn’t even close to serious.  If you are only able or willing to put down 3% you simply aren’t serious about homeownership.  It’s laughable…yet by 2007 40% of all mortgages had less than 3% downpayments…Evidence is now pouring in…that the financial crisis of 2008 was nearly exclusively created by government’s misguided interventions and manipulations of the housing market.
