SQM Research MD Louis Christopher says confidence in the housing market will recover if coronavirus-induced restrictions are eased by the end of May. He warns that residential property prices could fall by up to 30 per cent in Sydney and Melbourne if there is a second wave of coronavirus infections during winter and the restrictions have to remain in place. Christopher adds that the closure of the nation’s borders will reduce underlying demand for housing; he expects this to be one of the last restrictions to be lifted.
