NT Government Must Re-Think Housing Affordability Across the Territory

Posted by Katrina Parrington on May 6, 2015

The reserve bank of Australia has taken a national perspective on the economy by taking the brave step of cutting theEldershomeloans_0014 - Copy interest rate once more.  This decision was taken despite the strong rise in Sydney property prices.   Trends in other cities and Australian towns are varied.

Interest rates are at incredible lows but as well as the Reserve Bank making adjustment,  the NT Government must consider what adjustments it can make to help home owners into their first home and to stimulate competition in business to make home ownership more affordable overall.

IS IT A BUYERS OR SELLERS MARKET?

Posted by Katrina Parrington on April 22, 2015

FHOG pictureWhile the pendulum swung slightly in favour of sellers over the quarter to Jan 2015, market conditions in Australia as a whole remain balanced, according to the latest Commonwealth Bank-CoreLogic Home Buyers Index buyers.

In other words, supply and demand are roughly equal. A closer look at the figures, however, reveals that conditions vary greatly in different property markets around the country.

Why is this important?

Understanding whether you’re in a buyer’s or seller’s market can give you the edge when it comes to property negotiations. In a seller’s market, where demand is high, the seller can often negotiate a higher price. In a buyer’s market, where supply exceeds demand, the opposite is true.

Sharp rate, but high comparison – Is this loan right for You?

Posted by Katrina Parrington on September 19, 2014

As all mortgage brokers are aware, lenders today are required to show comparison rates in advertisements for their home Interest Ratesloans as a way to try to establish the “true” cost of a loan.

The comparison rate combines both the interest rate, and the fees and charges relating to a loan over its lifetime, into a single annual percentage figure. The aim is to provide customers with an all-encompassing figure, so that they can compare “apples with apples when looking at loans from different lenders. It pays for brokers and borrowers to dig a little deeper to uncover whether a loan is right for you. Read the rest of this entry »

Statement by Glenn Stevens, Governor: Monetary Policy Decision

Posted by Katrina Parrington on August 2, 2011

At its meeting today, the Board decided to leave the cash rate unchanged at 4.75 per cent.

The global economy is continuing its expansion, but the pace of growth slowed in the June quarter. The supply-chain disruptions from the Japanese earthquake and the dampening effects of high commodity prices on income and spending in major countries both contributed to the slowing. It is still not clear how persistent this slower growth will be. The supply-chain disruptions are now gradually abating and commodity prices have softened of late, though they generally remain high.

Take 10 years off your mortgage?

Posted by Katrina Parrington on July 25, 2011

WOULD you like to shave 10 years off your mortgage? How much interest could this save you?
It’s not rocket science, it’s simply a matter of making more repayments more often and making sure you’ve got the best mortgage for your situation. Of the millions of homeowners, only some are getting out from under mortgage payments years, sometimes decades, before their neighbours.
How?
They make an effort to pay off their mortgage early.
The average home loan is now about $300,000, but living mortgage-free is not a pipe dream.
You may only need to find an extra $200-$500 every month so that you can exceed your mortgage payments. While many think they can’t afford that, you’d be amazed at how much money you can save on a monthly basis. Read the rest of this entry »
