Investing in the Australian property market is generally as strong today as it has ever been. The global financial crisis that hit the world in 2008 has certainly seen a slowdown in buying as investors are somewhat nervous, but was it is temporary, or is it still something to be concerned about? The predictions by analysts are that this will only be a temporary slowdown in the property market.

Time will tell!

There are many reasons why property investors should not be running scared. Australia is in a rather unique position in that it has much diversification in its economy. There are one or two States that are not so well off in that regard, but there are also several States that have very strong reasons for going ahead with property investment.

Queensland is the best placed State for property investment, with its varied mineral wealth, agriculture, fine weather that is attracting overseas migrants, tourism and continued growth. There are regions and suburbs in other States that are also receiving excellent growth, and we will cover these in further chapters.
