  • T Silva & L Wallace, Bardon QLD
    Having Chris and his team to assist us through the daunting “first-home owning” process was such a relief. Chris listened to what we were looking for in a loan, and explained the options clearly, breaking it down to what really mattered so that we could make the best decision. His team handled all the run-around tasks and kept us in check on what we needed to follow up on and when. Chris has also provided us advice and support post-loan when we wanted to consider other options and nothing is too much trouble… We can’t recommend Chris and his team enough!

    We’re starting later, it’s costing more - is the property dream unreachable in 2020?

    Once upon a time, let’s call it the 80s, the average Australian would buy their first home at the age of 24. Here we are, three decades later, and buying property doesn’t occur until we’re 35. Why is that? Is it thanks to the price of housing in our popular cities, and the militant discipline required to save a gigantic deposit? Or is it that we’ve decided to ‘live a little’ in our twenties, choosing renting and share-housing over striving to attain our first property asset? And is property still the asset class it used to be? Let’s discuss.

    The race to the bottom; banks start zealously cutting rates

    In the midst of a terrifying and rough summer for much of Australia, it’s odd to reflect on the season that has been for real estate. It’s been a while since the temperature of the housing and home loan market has been so pleasant. Record low rates, looser credit criteria, lender competition, government incentives, much more market activity and property price growth have been coinciding of late. The sentiment has changed and it can be seen in renewed investor and owner-occupier activity, banks proudly shouting about new low rates, and first-timers getting a gift from the government.

    Is your cash making you poorer?

    ​You know the phrase, “asset rich, cash poor”? It’s never been uttered in a more provocative environment. Even if you’re generally flush with cash, cash as an investment type is hamstrung these days by the central bank cash rate, meaning you’re poorer than you need to be. Let me say it straight. Cash, right now, is kinda useless as an investment. Rates are about as low as they can go (or are they?) so any cash investments still held are no longer helping your cause. That’s presuming the cause is wealth creation. Cash investments are simply not delivering the returns and the low risk profile that have made them popular for so long.
