South Australia Outlook Survey responses from SA members on their thoughts to the policy changes include: Policy
Support a carbon tax?
Carbon tax will increase percentage of customers seeking energy efficient features when looking to buy
Should Stamp Duty be abolished?
Should Stamp Duty be replaced with a broad-based land tax
Should Stamp Duty be replaced with death duties? Support disposing of negative gearing?
The exclusion of any of these proposed policy changes from the recently announced South Australian state budget may be an indication that the Government does not intend to take such matters any further. A key change for the property market in South Australia which will impact quite significantly is the number of local government authorities throughout the state and territory who are amending their planning regulations to allow for higher density developments which should see activity increase.
