Four reasons to buy in a cool market

Posted by Katrina Parrington on July 27, 2016

It’s a common mistake made by many first-time investors – delaying an acquisition due to a cooling market. So why can it be wise to buy in a downturn? It’s widely known that property markets are cyclical and will experience ebbs and flows. However, when any given market experiences a slowdown, many investors, particularly novice investors, will defer buying a property because they’re deterred by the widespread negative sentiment. Acquiring an investment property in a cooler market can be highly beneficial, though.

Is buying a property now cheaper than paying rent?

Posted by Katrina Parrington on February 9, 2016

Despite what the media has been portraying it is a tough rental market at the moment. There are still so many tenants who are vacating properties to buy their own properties. With the current interest rates at their lowest, paying a mortgage is now cheaper than paying rent. I have now heard this from numerous tenants. They may not be buying in the same suburbs they are leasing in but, they tell me they have the chance to stop paying someone else’s mortgage and invest in their own with more security. There are so many new buildings and developments happening in Sydney.
