Foreign Investors | The Great Debate

API Magazine – Two sides to a story foreign investors - April 2015 THUMBThe impact of foreign investment on the Australia’s Property Market had rise as one of the most heated debate in the property investment industry. Some are quite confident that the reason for a rising property value and the supposedly downward trend of our property’s affordability is because of rich foreign investors snatching up properties regardless of how much they cost while others think otherwise. It’s no doubt that it’s an emotive subject that can get quite heated, but what’s the truth about foreign investment and its impact on the Australian property industry? Australian Property Investor (API) Magazine dives headfirst into the debate and asked Ben Kingsley, Empower Wealth’s CEO & Founder for his opinion. Here’s a snippet of the article:

“Depending on what you’re reading, or where, foreign investors are either ruining the property game for everyone or they’re propping up the industry. Media commentary on the subject has been particularly rife over the past 12 months, with certain elements of the press screaming that first home buyers are being priced out of the market, while other sections of the media dismiss all criticism of the subject and extol only its virtues.

So, what’s the truth? Is foreign investment in Australia all bad or all good or, like many things, is it less black and white than that?”
