Housing Affordability. APRA. Investor’s Lending. Super Property Deposit Debate.
These are headline news for the last few weeks which have been monopolising the business section of most press for some time now. So, we don’t think we can wait any longer either!
Now, what did they chat about today? You would be expecting conversation around the long-term sustainability of the Australian Property Market, an upcoming correction and who will be affected; APRA’s move on investment lending; changes on interest-only loans and how it will affect some borrowers out there; implementing Money SMARTS during these times; relationship between migration and the economy; the Superannuation Property Deposit Debate and more.
Let us forewarn you that this Bonusisode is not as light as our usual episodes. This time, Bryce and Ben discuss some critical housing and political issues and as usual, the commentary in this show is general in nature and is an opinion comment by both of them. It does not take into account the particular investment objectives or financial situation of any potential listeners, and you should always consult a qualified professional advisor before making any investment decisions.
