A growing number of investors are pessimistic about the fate of the Australian property market in 2012. And it’s no wonder with plenty of negative sentiment clouding the media. But according to property industry experts, there is no reason to panic.

Your Investment Property magazine consulted a panel of experts including top economists and property analysts to find out what to expect in the year ahead and found investors have plenty to be cheerful about. Editor Nila Sweeney said the Australian economy remains strong.

“Despite the alarming headlines, the economy is holding up well in the face of economic turmoil overseas,” said Sweeney. “The huge drops in property prices of 30-40% that the likes of Steve Keen and Harry Dent have predicted are unlikely to materialise.”

At a state-specific level, Your Investment Property has identified the key drivers of growth in each state, as well as those factors that may cause growth to drag.

“Poor sentiment is a real problem in Queensland, Western Australia and South Australia at the moment, whereas over in New South Wales and Victoria, it’s more about affordability,” said Sweeney. “But lower interest rates, big infrastructure projects in the pipeline and some strong state economies will be pushing the property market through in the new year.”
