Australians invest in property to make a buck

Australians are investing in the property market to make up for weak returns on their super funds and share prices.

ANZ head property and financial systems analyst Paul Braddick told Mortgage Business that property investment will stand the test of time in generating an income.

“The residential property market is proving to be a lot more resilient compared to the equity market which has experienced a recent collapse,” Mr Braddick said.

2009 has seen super funds experience the worst returns since its introduction in 1992 with default funds falling by 13 per cent.

These losses, coupled with the freezing of redemptions on mortgage, property and fixed income trusts, have seen people turn back to the reliability of returns produced by investment properties.
