REIQ Journal – Special Election Edition – 23 September
The REIQ is calling on all political parties to not forget the critical contributions of Queensland’s real estate sector to the local economy, as the State election draws closer. The industry body is calling for reforms to ten policy, legislative and incentive areas to ensure that Queensland’s property market remains stable and secure during these uncertain times due to COVID-19.
REIQ CEO Antonia Mercorella says the incoming government must address the issues highlighted in the REIQ’s 2020 Election Industry Reforms , and that it’s time the sector is recognised as a major driver of the economy.
“Queensland’s residential real estate sector is worth over $1 trillion and employs over 46,000 Queenslanders directly with many more employed in associated industries. Activity within the real estate sector contributes in excess of $30 billion every year to the Queensland Government,” says Ms. Mercorella. “Protecting and sustaining the Queensland real estate sector is critical to safeguarding our property market and supporting our local economy. In order to do so, strong action needs to be taken.”
