Home in on deals for end of financial year

June 01, 2012

Conditions are right for homeowners to dip their toes in property investment, with plenty of competitive home loan on offer.

Research by LJ Hooker Finance has shown 26 per cent of existing homeowners are looking to buy a second property and, of those, 28 per cent have owned their own home for three to five years.


LJ Hooker Head of Finance, Peter Bromley, says investors are now considering delving into the property market. We are seeing people really start to think about coming back to real estate investment,” he says. “Even Gen Ys now look at buying an investment property.”


The research results were compiled from a survey of more than 1000 people and found 42 per believed interest rates were a deciding factor when considering a home loan.”


Bromley says the volatility surrounding the share market and a combination of other factors have made now an appealing time for investors to buy a second property.


“Rates are still fairly stable,” he says. “Vendors are looking to move on, so people looking to buy property are going to get a good deal out there.”
