As a proportion of new lending commitments, first home buyer lending has fallen sharply since 2009. Between 2002 and 2009, first home buyers generally accounted for around 23% of monthly lending commitments. In March 2011, only 12% of lending commitments were for first time buyers.
More theoretically, the value of an investment property should be equal to the sum of all future discounted net rental income, with the discount rate being proportionate to the expected risk of the investment. This is analogous to how the value of a share is defined as the sum of all future discounted dividends.
There are some segments that will still be active in the forecasted upcoming subdued market. Refinancers will drive an increasing proportion of lending commitments. Downsizers and upgraders are also expected to account for a larger proportion of the market activity.
