Yes, but only for the cities where this is an issue - interest rate based on postcode.

Generally speaking yes, but because of Covid and the impact this would have on people who cant work, no

No. I think the current lending will help Manage the sector. The horse has already bolted with the Chinese investments several years ago increasing the house prices. The prices now are so far out of our children’s reach. Too late guys.

Maybe, if this is included in the inflation statistic (which it currently isn’t)

Increase Capital Gains tax instead, along with other tax reform

No, I dont believe raising interest will have a huge effect. Instead I think the government should offer more subsidies and benefits for Australian citizens and raise a tax against foreign investors.

No. The Reserve Bank of Australia should never interfere with interests rates.

Yes but apply these interest rate increases only to Area's where the bubble is presenting itself this will promote investment in other areas

There are too many other factors that should be considered. Beyond my competence to decide

What does this have to do with housing? Higher interest rates means more to pay back. Why would you wanna pay more for a house? However, if it’s the bank giving you back interest then, yeah whatever.

Housing should be affordable for All. Low interest rates are good... but not if your mortgage lasts to the end off your paid work years or your lifetime. Houses have exceeded their true worth.
