September’s cheapest investment home loans
Unit affordability and low rates are a good combination for property investors.
New figures from CoreLogic show housing affordability is tracking upwards. Housing affordability showed a modest gain for the June 2018 quarter across all dwelling types, but unit affordability in particular is increasing at a swifter pace.
The median unit price across Australia is now 6.2 times the median income, well down from its peak at 6.6 in 2015 and 2016. This is good news for investors looking to break into the unit market.
Even better news is that in spite of recent rate rises, investors can still find home loans with interest rates below 4%.
