November 2018’s cheapest investment home loans
Right now is the perfect time for property investors to look for a better home loan deal.
While the Reserve Bank of Australia may have left the official cash rate on hold for a record 27 months, that hasn't stopped lenders from making their own moves, and investors have been left feeling the sting. In fact, according to CoreLogic research head Tim Lawless, the RBA's period of inactivity has seen investors slugged with an average 50 basis point rate rise.
"That's the equivalent of two cash rate hikes," Lawless said.
Investors are already paying an average of 0.55% higher than owner-occupiers. However, good deals for investors still abound. If you're trying to build wealth through property, now is a perfect time to perform a home loan health check.
