Market Update

The real estate market is cooling around the country. Especially in Sydney and Melbourne. Most Lenders, lead by the big 4 Banks and their subsidiaries applying more stringent credit criteria. This includes placing post code restrictions on a number of inner ring suburbs and at times specific developments in order to manage their risk.

Please consult with your Mortgage Broker if you are looking at purchasing especially in some of the bigger developments.

More restrictive lending criteria means refinancing may not be as straight forward as it once was. Many new rules need to be applied often reducing your borrowing capacity since the last time you applied and was approved for finance. Again, please consult with your Mortgage Broker for more advice.
