Talk:Australian property market
|WikiProject Australia||(Rated Stub-class, Low-importance)|
While the [[Australian property market] is the smallest of the three, I think that it is the major topic, with the other two being subsets of that topic. I believe that Australian property bubble suffers recentism and has become overblown. In addition, the article title there is not really appropriate. There is no clear evidence that there is a property bubble in Australia because there has not been a substantial drop in prices. That may yet happen, but wikipedia should not be a crystal ball. In addition, assuming that the present increase in house prices does constitute a bubble, there is at least one other property bubble in Australian history (1880's, especially in Melbourne, see A History of Housing Prices in Australia 1880-2010 for example] and potentially the price changes in the early 1920s nationally and the late 1950s through to the 1960s, especially in Sydney.
I think that by merging the three articles and then building up a balanced section on the current rise in prices, we will have a better article overall.
The article Home ownership in Australia is basically a stub at present but takes a more social viewpoint. Once again, I think that it will benefit by being part of a broader article initially and perhaps expanding in to a separate article in the future.
