Yesterday PIPA released their national annual survey report. This report gathered insights from nearly 1,200 property investors, finding that investors are demonstrably more positive about the market compared to the same time last year – despite slower markets in Sydney and Melbourne and a relatively tight financial environment.

In the above report, a staggering 75 per cent of investors say that property policies in the Federal Election influenced how they voted with nearly 60 per cent also now considering non-bank lenders after the Banking Royal Commission, the 2019 PIPA Property Investor Sentiment Survey has found.

Over the past year, the survey found that 27 per cent of investors had secured a loan from a non-major bank lender with the top two reasons being cheaper interest rates and increasing borrowing power.

In fact, the survey found that the two biggest concerns for investors were gaining access to lending as well as Australian economic conditions.

“Given tight lending conditions and the financial sector’s response to the Banking Royal Commission, a staggering 25 per cent of respondents have found they were unable to refinance an amount they were able to borrow previously,” PIPA Chairman Peter Koulizos said.

About 82 per cent of investors believe that now is a good time to invest in residential property, which is up from 77 per cent in 2018.

“Long-term capital growth beat out cash flow – both long- and short-term – as the most important aspect when choosing an investment,” Mr Koulizos said.

While Brisbane is once more the preferred capital city for investment among respondents, there has been a dramatic rebound in Sydney’s appeal among investors – rising from nine per cent in 2018 to 14 per cent in 2019.”
