With interest rates at a historic low, you may be looking for a better way to grow your money than in a cheque or savings account.
With a new report by ANZ economists predicting house prices at the national level will rise to a strong 17% through 2021, before slowing to 6% in 2022, it would be almost impossible to find a better return for your money. Fortunately, Homestar Finance’s home loan specialists can help you get the most competitive interest rates on an investment loan and tailor a home loan to suit your personal needs so that you can take advantage of the housing boom.
Even if you can’t buy your dream home right now, buying an investment property you can rent out, negative gear, and potentially get a good return on, could help you grow your money so you can buy the perfect home in the perfect suburb later.
