Negative gearing helps investors but the home owner receives substantially more benefits. Nevertheless, for both of them, housing over the last 5 years was a great investment – far better than the superannuation they are forced to contribute to.
If the first sign of madness is doing the same thing and expecting a different result, how are we to describe the state of mind that does the same failed policy twice as hard and expects an even better result?
The latest edition of the AIP’s Housing Affordability Index shows house repayments continuing to be affordable on historical comparisons, while deposits continue to be relatively unaffordable.
This analysis shows the major issue with housing affordability is the time it takes to save a deposit, not negative gearing, and that mortgage repayments themselves are quite affordable by the standards of the last 23 years.
