A new report from the OECD concludes that Australia’s housing market is likely to experience a soft landing. However, the OECD notes that the nation’s 27-year record of economic growth would be at risk if there is a hard landing in the property market. The international agency expects Australia to record economic growth of 3.1 per cent in 2018 and 2.9 per cent in 2019, although these forecasts were made prior to the release of the latest national accounts data.
