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.

My recent acquisition oElders Home Loan_NT Locations Logo_Stackedf Elders Home Loans in Darwin, and offices set up in Palmerston and shortly Katherine,  brings the Territory under the one professional lending services umbrella.

Since I established the business in Alice Springs in 2009 I’ve got real satisfaction helping people buy their homes, assisting Territory businesses to grow by sourcing the best financial product and working with families to build property investment portfolios that will secure their financial future.

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. In China most indications suggest only a mild slowdown so far. Read the rest of this entry »

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 »

Warning as home and rates could yet take a tumble

Posted by Katrina Parrington on May 13, 2010

  • By John Rolfe – Daily Telegraph 

PROPERTY prices and official interest rates might not rise much more this year, due to the worsening crisis in Europe.

Indeed, both could fall. Chaos on the world’s forex, debt and stock markets caused economists and futures investors to revise predictions of more rate rises this year, with the ASX opening betting between traders on a rate cut next month.
