    I know a couple who have jumped into retirement care as the returns are better than residential investment - plus they can sell up later on for a good chunk of change.

    So maybe there will be a swing away from the ma & pa to the 'professional investor' (20+). I wonder if there are stats on who is buying up investor properties? Is it the Pro's or ma&pa investors.

    'a 10% or more price decline that usually follows a temporary rise' - is one definition I found for 'correction' and it relates to shares, property etc.

    I think it's also the stigma that comes with the modular or prefab build considered cheap and entry level and the fact that the home is a status symbol. We're getting what we've asked for.
