Do Elections Influence Property Market Activity?

 

We have analysed sales activity and confidence surveys coinciding with the past six elections to assess if Election 2020 will have an impact on property investing. 

 

Analysis of residential sales activity surrounding the last six elections shows that the level of sales activity generally varies little from its current trend, unless there is a significant government property-related policy in the limelight.

 

Analysis of commercial and industrial property sales activity since 2000 shows little divergence in purchasing trends when analysed against election campaign periods, potentially a result of the sector's being less influenced by policy outcomes than the residential sector.
