Australian economy highly vulnerable to housing slumps

Staff Reporter 1 minute read

Australia has the fourth easiest access to housing credit in the world, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) World Economic Outlook has reported.

According to the IMF, Australia – along with the US, Denmark and the Netherlands – has one of the most ‘developed’ mortgage markets. It also found, however, that Australia is at a high risk of a broader economic downturn in the event of a housing market slump.

Research has revealed that spillovers from the housing sector to the rest of the economy are larger in economies where it is easier to access mortgage credit.
