Rates hold at 2.5% as RBA looks at other ways to cool property market
Hi Reader,

Speculation has grown in the last month over whether the RBA and APRA are going to introduce tighter restrictions on home loan lending in an attempt to slow down demand. In this edition I’ve provided some insight into what these measures might look like and what they could mean for borrowers.


There’s also been growing concern at the number of homeowners taking out interest-only loans. And while this type of loan is a great short term solution for many, I would always recommend clients talk to me about their specific circumstances before advising which loan is best suited to their needs.

Finally, I’ve also included some broker essentials which your clients should keep in mind when using my services.

From,
Mark Harrison
