​Foreign buying activity in the Australian residential property market accounts for one in six new properties nationally

    And the RBA discusses changing LVR's for Australian residents to slow property growth in Sydney & Melbourne; when most overseas buyers are paying cash. I guess they want the overseas buyers to make up even more of the market share. People paying cash, don't really care what your lending requirements are, but first home buyers do.

    "Foreign buyers were less active in the established property market over Q3, with their share of total national demand rising to 8.2%"

    I thought foreigners buying established housing was illegal.. Anyone?

    I won't ask the FIRB as they're too busy

    hen is the government insist that the legislation in regards to FIRB approval for non residents buying RESI property is enforced .
    They can control this tomorrow by making sure all regulations are enforced , Their enforcement is lax at best .
