October’s cheapest investment home loans
Amidst talk of a property downturn, some suburbs are still set to boom for investors.
If you're thinking about investing in property, choosing the right suburb is of paramount importance. While home prices have been tracking downwards, finder's Boom and Doom Property Index has identified the suburbs likely to see strong growth in the years ahead.
The Boom and Doom Property Index collates six key metrics using ABS and CoreLogic data to identify the suburbs set for price growth and those to avoid. It's an indispensable tool for potential investors.
Perhaps just as important as choosing the right property in the right suburb is choosing the right home loan. That's why we've searched the finder.com.au database to find October's cheapest investment loans. To ensure these loans would suit the average investor, we applied the following criteria:

- All six mortgages have maximum loan to value ratios of 80%, requiring a 20% deposit.
