Affordable housing includes the provision of affordable rental options. In Australia government incentives, which purport to increase the availability of rental housing through taxation offsets, may actually contribute to decreasing affordability as housing prices increase. This project studies Australian residential property investors accessing finance with the purpose of exploring residential investors, behaviour, characteristics and motivations in the supply of housing. We study the determining factors for accessing finance for residential investment purposes as opposed to owner-occupation purposes, focusing on the investment motive of housing demand. We document investor profile, investment location and characteristics of the dwelling purchase using a rich individual level dataset. Specifically, we explore the investors decisions at entery into the residential property investment market and the characteristics of the dwelling types and mortgage choice variables.
