    An investor by definition is looking for return and is usually reasonably well informed. Once returns fall below acceptable, investors will sell or move to areas where returns are better. Given that First Home Buyers have left the market, little wonder investor share of loans increases to take up the slack and provide rental accommodation. Instead of meddling in the market on the assumption that investors are so stupid as to buy overpriced stock in vast numbers and then flood the market when there is no rental demand, policy measures should be addressing the difficulties of owner occupiers attempting to enter the market. Investor lending should be left to the free market to find it's own level, stop fixing an imagined crisis.
