Home Loan Options for 2019
The New Year is one of the common seasons where new beginnings commence. Building a home or moving into a new one would be a great way to start 2019. Getting a mortgage at the start of the year would be your ticket to a new home this coming new year.
Expat Home Loans in 2019
Property prices for homes in Australia trended downwards at the end of 2018. Cautious investors, a tightening in lending practices by banks and a new set of housing supply are just some of the factors that contributed to the downward turn. However, with the real estate market slowly picking up in 2019, we might see a fairly increase both in local and international home purchases in the land down under.
A strong but steady population growth, lower unemployment rates, increase in first-home buyer activity and a rapid improvement in wage growth, predictions of a healthier and busy real estate market are common among investors and real estate enthusiasts.
House prices are predicted to increase roughly from 3-5% in cities like Perth, Canberra, and Brisbane. Adelaide and Hobart properties may increase in value by 2% while those in Melbourne might stay within the average value they had in 2018. This would be a good basis for choosing the location of the property you want to purchase or invest in the coming new year.
Expat home loans can be quite difficult when you cannot attend to your documentation needs while working or living abroad. Consulting with a mortgage specialist would be ideal to make the process easier. With a slowdown in the home construction in Australia being observed this coming year, it would be ideal to invest in a home right now before home prices begin to increase in value.
