PICA attacks Labor’s ‘flawed’ negative-gearing policy
PICA attacks Labor’s ‘flawed’ negative-gearing policy
The Property Investors Council of Australia is urging investors to rally against Labor’s “economically damaging” negative gearing policy by signing a new petition on change.org. PICA chair Ben Kingsley said Labor’s proposed changes to negative gearing will not serve Australia well, both economically and socially. “You can’t take away upwards of 30 per cent of buyer demand and expect all property values to hold up,” he said. “Ask yourself, who’s going to buy a brand new property and run it at a loss for several years, if they know these new properties aren’t going to have the buyer demand...
Will your credit card derail your mortgage application?
Will your credit card derail your mortgage application?
Are you aware that there may be items on your credit card statement that could derail your mortgage application? We all know about the importance of paying bills on time every time, but what about the other criteria lenders now look at on your statements? From the Financial Ombudsman, under their “Responsible Lending Conduct Obligations and Maladministration”, it states: The responsible lending obligations require reasonable inquiries to be made about the consumer’s financial situation. What does that look like in real life? Financial institutions now will go through your statement line by lin...

Loan rates could rise further, investment firm warns
Loan rates could rise further, investment firm warns
  While the cash rate is unlikely to move any time soon, Australian investors could still face difficulty with rates on home loans, an investment firm has claimed. FIIG Securities director of education and research Liz Moran told sister publication Nest Egg she doesn’t see the official cash rate moving any time soon, but mortgage-holders could still be hit with a proxy rate hike. She explained that despite the cash rate not moving since August 2016, the bank bill swap rate (BBSW) has spiked recently. The BBSW is essentially the rate at which banks borrow and lend between each other. It re...

Changing negative gearing would ‘reduce the efficiency of the housing market’, says expert
Changing negative gearing would ‘reduce the efficiency of the housing market’, says expert
By increasing the tax on investing in residential homes, new research has found rental prices would rise and housing affordability would worsen. Independent research undertaken for the Housing Industry Association (HIA) by the Centre for International Economics (CIE) came to the same conclusion that previous research by Independent economics in 2014 on negative gearing arrangements had reached. HIA’s principal economist, Tim Reardon, said that further restrictions on negative gearing would adversely affect Aussies and buying homes. “Further restrictions on negative gearing will lower Australia...

At its meeting on Tuesday 1st May, the Board of the Reserve Bank decided to leave the cash rate unchanged at 1.50 per cent. Below is a statement issued on Tuesday by Reserve Bank Governor Philip Lowe .   The global economy has strengthened over the past year.

Housing more affordable than 30 years ago: Experts
  A real estate investment advisory body has claimed that property is more affordable now than nearly 30 years ago, and that other experts may not have been looking at the right numbers. When analysing the current state of housing affordability in Australia, income, house prices and mortgage repayments must all be considered together, according to the Property Investment Professionals of Australia (PIPA) and its chairman, Peter Koulizos. PIPA examined annual figures, looking at the average size of a home loan, the standard variable rate, principal and interest loan repayments and the annu...
Aussies believe they need $830,000 to be ‘financially free’
Aussies believe they need $830,000 to be ‘financially free’
  Most Australians believe they need $830,000 to significantly improve their lives forever, but residents of NSW say they need a bit more than that. How much money would you need to significantly improve your life forever? The National Australia Bank’s ‘Financial Freedom Survey’ has put a number on how much money Australians need to significantly improve their lives forever. In a survey of 2,000 Australians, the ‘magic number’ came out as $830,000 – up from $760,000 last year. But the results varied significantly from state to state, and gender, income,...

Interest Rate Update
The official cash rate for April has been announced by the Reserve Bank of Australia following its monthly board meeting. The board has decided to hold the cash rate at its record low of 1.50 per cent, in a move predicted by most industry representatives. Of the 32 surveyed respondents on the finder.com.au panel, 31 (97 per cent) correctly predicted the cash rate to remain unchanged. The central bank has now kept the cash rate on hold for a record-breaking 18 consecutive months. RateCity’s money editor, Sally Tindall, said that she expects the record will continue to be broken. “The record mig...
YES YOU CAN BANK ON IT     
YES YOU CAN BANK ON IT     
  If you’re in your-mid 50’s, it pays to start getting your finances in order. These days, most people turning 55 are still feeling young. Many are still moving up the senior ranks of their business or organisation, passing on their knowledge and experience to those following: the children have generally left home (though it may be wise to check the bedrooms), and they have plenty of energy for new pursuits. But this is also the age at which some thought should be given to retirement and what you want to do with all that extra time – and whether you can afford it. There are so many option...
