Major Bank Rate Hike for Investors

July 27, 2015 in Insider Tips, Latest News, Rate Rises

CBAThe Commonwealth Bank is penalising Investors by charging higher interest rates of up to 0.40% p.a. for Investment Property Loans.

These rate increases do not apply to Owner Occupied Home Loans and has sent a clear message by the CBA to investors to “Take Your Business Elsewhere” if you wish to achieve a competitive interest rate for your Investment Property Loan.

Fortunately for Investors there are many alternative Banks & Non-Bank Lenders with low interest rates who are more than keen to welcome investors as new clients.

Major Bank Imposes Restrictions on Investors

July 8, 2015 in Insider Tips, Latest News

Westpac.3

Westpac Bank has announced significant changes to their lending policies for borrowers seeking to purchase an Investment Property.

Westpac will restrict investors to loan amounts up to 80% of their property value. This will impact greatly on the tax deductions able to be achieved by Westpac clients as they will now be required to contribute the 20% Deposit + Stamp Duties + Purchase Costs from their own funds rather than being able to borrow these amounts and claiming the interest as a tax deduction.

Whilst several other Banks have also announced similar restrictions on investors,  industry insiders do not anticipate these policies to be adopted by the entire banking industry.

Q:    Can Investors access loans that will allow them to borrow more than 80% of their property value ?

A:   YES … Our Mortgage Specialists have access to over 30 Banks and can source a Bank who has NOT introduced restrictions or discrimatory approval policies targeting Investors.

The Reserve Bank may have kept rates on hold for another month however many banks are now offering lower interest rates for Owner Occupied Home Loans.

Why you may ask …

The simple answer is that the banks are under pressure from ASIC + APRA + the RBA to ensure a balance is maintained between new Owner Occupied Home Loans & the ever increasing demand for new Investment Loans.

Offering amazing deals to encourage more Owner Occupied Home Loans will open the door for more Investment Loans to also be written by the banks.

The winners are the Mum’s & Dad’s, First Home Buyers & those seeking to upgrade their homes as the banks are prepared to fight to earn your business.
