A survey by ME found Australian mortgage holders are extremely sensitive to rate hikes. Of the 2,000 mortgage holders polled, 56% said a rise of even 1% would have an adverse impact on their finances. Forty-three per cent said they would spend less as the result of a rate hike, while 27% of investors said they would sell their investment property.
