Your Mortgage Broker in Brisbane Southside, Logan and the Gold Coast

I have been in the Banking & Finance industry for 35 years. Which means, I have been in finance longer, than the age of most bank managers. I have worked for a number of financial institutions, and have held the positions of Branch Manager, Lending Manager, Area Manager, and State Manager among others. For the last 18 years I have been a broker with Loan Market, and in that time have organised in excess of $200 million in home loans. I have dealt with over 1,000 clients. I am proud to say that I have never received a complaint from any of my clients. I have been an Elite Broker for a number of years, and have won an MFAA Excellence Award. So not only am I a qualified, and experienced professional, I also have a very proud record in the industry.

    Mike Ruiz has provided excellent professional service to me over a number of years. He has done loans for my 3 properties and I am now buying a fourth as well as assisting my family and a friend. Mike has assisted me to chose the right loan, answered all my questions and explained the benefits of each loan. One of my properties is with a Self Managed Super Fund, with Custodian and Trustee Companies. Mike helped me through the long and detailed process in setting up the loan correctly ensuring compliance. Mike assisted my friend buy a property and my son with loans for both his properties. I would highly recommended Mike Ruiz to assist as a Mortgage Broker

    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.
