Finally, the year of 2018 is upon us! In the last 12 months, there were highs and lows occurring for certain industries.
- The American online giant Amazon launched its full retail offering in Australia.
- The cryptocurrency Bitcoin once soared above the $17,000 mark and even the $19,850 mark, then tumbled.
- Latest data shows that debts across the country hit a record high of double household incomes and are still climbing, making it difficult for the Reserve Bank to raise cash rates.

The year of 2018 is destined to be a milestone year for property investors. After several years of double digits’ climbing, the so-called cooling market will see some mixed results. On one hand, part of the full-load buyers will seek to restructure their loan exposure in pursuit of better mortgage rates or conditions, or dispose of some comparatively low performance investment properties to consolidate their financial positions; on the other hand, with the First Home Owner’s Grants incentives, first home buyers and well-prepared investors will take advantage of this temporarily flat market.
The 2017 Property Investor Sentiment Survey conducted by Your Investment Property Magazine asked the opinions of 2,250 Australian subscribers. Despite the property market moves to the next phase of the cycle, 61% of respondents still believe now is a good time to buy property and 51% of respondents even plan to buy another investment property within the next 12 months. What would be the best strategy for your specific cases in this situation? Seeking advice from our mortgage team before being bound by any purchasing contracts is very important.
