Why fear is leaving the property market this Spring

John McGrath looks back at what history tells us about property market recoveries.

A buoyant Spring property season ahead

How Bill Shorten's election loss, back-to-back interest rate cuts and an easing in lending restrictions have led to the first green shoots of a property market recovery.

House prices boom again. We now need stimulation, not rate cuts.

Rate cuts now are dangerous so maybe we need some Churchillian inspiration and stimulation: "Never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never... Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts."

Life on the coast

The popular commuter hub region around NSW's Central Coast is being revitalised under a 20-year government plan that started in 2016, making the area attractive for those after a beachy lifestyle and good transport links by road and rail back to Sydney.
