[Video] Housing affordability drop to aid investors

However, due to this activity, new research has shown that housing affordability is falling. RP Data pointed out that sales for properties in capital cities below $400,000 over the last year are dropping significantly.

In Brisbane, RP Data found the proportion of units that were sold with a price tag of $400,000 or less was just over 50 per cent.

While this creates a problem for first home buyers and upgraders, rental property investors are set to benefit.

The reason for this is that more and more hopeful purchasers will need to rent property instead of buy – meaning more tenants in the rental market.

Lower affordability also means house prices are rising, benefiting investors who aim to sell their properties in the future.

As an investor, remember that the key to buying more homes is in your equity. As values rise, your equity might too!
