The future of markets around Australia.

It's the future that matters, not the present or the recent past. That may sound simplistic but the reality is that most Australians invest according to the present while being influenced by the past.

Affordability is Australia's most over-rated issue.

Next time someone tells you that Australia is a country with an affordability crisis, refer them to the official figures on mortgage delinquencies.

There are many others. The best way to stay safe is to question everything you read or hear in mainstream media.

The year just ending has been a pivotal one in Australian real estate. It has witnessed the end to one boom and the rise of another. As we approach the end of 2015, there is a changing of the guard, with Melbourne poised to overtake Sydney in the national pecking order.

The average Australian interested in real estate has a head full of misinformation about property.

The average person is not well-informed about real estate issues and does not conduct genuine research before committing large sums to buy property.

Australian real estate makes perfect sense.

The Reserve Bank has been cutting interest rates for almost four years, but the vast majority of markets around Australia have not had a property boom - or anything remotely like it.

One of the best ways to identify markets likely to deliver price growth is to find the areas where sales activity is rising.

Boom over? Itís really just beginning

There we all were, minding our own business, thinking things were chugging along quite nicely - and then along comes Joe Hockey with his Budget. Suddenly, we're living in a different country.

There is plenty of growth to come in most of our cities

It's easy to be misled by media hype into believing you've missed the boat if you didn't buy in 2013. Many writers have characterised last year as a boom market nationwide.

Time to review 2013 and contemplate the New Year

As 2013 is behind us, it's time to review what's happened - because this informs what we can expect to happen, this year, in 2014.

Danger time amid the upturn

With 2013 arriving like a blast of fresh air, the greatest danger for investors in such a climate is becoming careless. When markets are rising and newspapers switch from their usual gloom to stories of booming prices, it's easy to believe that you can buy almost anywhere and get growth.

What is in store for 2013?

I expect it to be a time of improving prospects for our major property markets. We are unlikely to see boom markets in many places - there will be some - but we will see more growth than in 2012

It all looks positive - if only we could find some leaders.

The consumer confidence index published by Westpac shows most Australians absolutely insist on being pessimistic, despite everything.

The only thing missing was confidence

This time last year I recorded my predictions for 2011. I suggested it would a better year than 2010 and in my view that's the way it turned out.

After all the warnings, property stays solid while the share market collapses.

Australia is a boom nation but doesn't know it. Its citizens have a glass-half-empty mentality when the glass is three-quarters full.

It's a buyers' market but the only active people are sellers

The key factor constricting real estate activity is not interest rates. It is a crisis of confidence among the citizens of Australia.
