Propell National Valuers, national research manager and economist, Linda Phillips said the residential market is showing signs typical of an “end of an innings”.

“What it means is if an SMSF is going to buy into this market, [trustees] can’t just assume you can buy anything and it will go up in value,” she told SMSF Adviser.

“The market faces headwinds in the form of the traditionally slower winter months, the painful federal government Budget and rising unemployment”, she added.

With looming release of the Budget, Ms Phillips said she does not believe there will being any changes to rules concerning SMSF property investors.

“We did flag that they might remove negative gearing and [the government] did consider it, but it is too hard,” she said.

“However they might look at tightening the rules around negative gearing,” she added.
