    Economy 'vulnerable' to property overheating

    With property prices now surging at one of the fastest paces on record in Sydney and Melbourne, IMF has warned regulators to be ready with macroprudential tools.

    What can we expect in 2020?

    Will it be a repeat of 2017/18 where regulators over correct and burst the debt fueled Melbourne and Sydney property bubbles?

    Will the correction be more mild or more severe than 2017/18?

    Peter is back with more of his 'loaded' questions...

    The choices in his polls and questions remind me of the "Have you stopped beating your wife?" question and you can only respond in 'yes' or 'no' !!!! Try answering that now :)

    So is this going to be a hard landing or the bubble will burst slowly...Are you all going to lose your shirts or both the shirts and undies..

    BTW, I have been seeing this coming from IMF from pre GFC era - google IMF & Aus property and you will see this going back to 2006.. verbatim.

    Not happening , we arent at zero rates nor in recession yet.

    Would be interesting to see how the fires and drought are gonna affect prices this coming year. Gonna be really hot dry and full of ash in the air this summer.

    Look, I will just say that when you become more globalised in your economic policies you are going to find it harder to manage the issues that matter domestically.
    The last Sydney and Melbourne boom went for a long time and currently the wage to house price ratio is not good in these cities. If wages growth remains flat and unemployment rises then trouble will come. Immigration policies may come back into play and currency values.
