Remove the negative gearing component, and the sale price of properties could potentially decrease if property becomes less attractive for investors and the people left in the market (ie demand) are not willing to pay as much as the investors were.

I really think it's more complicated than getting rid of negative gearing = cheaper housing.
The knock on effect of tax changes usually take years to play out especially in something like a housing market.
The main problem with negative gearing is it just costs too much in lost tax for no good reason. In a country that can't afford it it should go. We are cutting benefits for single mums and low income earners yet still allowing this. It doesn't make sense.
This comes back to my problem with non fixed terms for governments. If governments had some guts and were prepared to give things 10 years to work before panicking about losing an election and caving we might see positive change. But we won't.
