This paper examines factors influencing Australian landlords’ decisions to retain their rental investments. It is found that middle-aged investors are more attached to rental investments than younger ones. However, once retired, there is a sharp increase in the likelihood of exit from rental investments. It is concluded that fiscal and monetary policy settings play an important role in shaping rental housing investment decisions, since interest rate and tax parameters are important in determining investors’ negative gearing status. These will in turn drive changes in housing supply and affordability in rental markets
