Mum and Dad investors are the lifeblood of Australia’s rental accommodation

Posted by Katrina Parrington on April 1, 2016

Federal, state, and local governments are flat out trying to fund the Nation’s essential infrastructure let alone rental accommodation. The percentage of Australian residential dwellings that are funded by governments has shrunk to a miserly 2.9% per year. Mum-and-dad property investors need to continue to be encouraged to add to the rental pool of Australia’s growing population. According to official ATO records, 30% of all Australian residential dwellings receive rental income. The other 70% of dwellings are occupied by the owner (whether mortgaged or debt free).

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.

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.
