Interest Rates 2017: What Investors Need To Know
Ben appeared in Your Investment Property Magazine this April and, as it turns out, there’s a whole lot he wants to tell investors about interest rates 2017. Let’s face it: interest rates matter. When it comes to your lending capacity and structure, they can make or break how (and when) you invest. Your cash flow can really dive or soar too … and, for the most part, we have no direct control over interest rates. So how and why do they change?
In this article (finance friendly for all skill levels), Ben explores the latest in interest rates this year, and how they influence the economy and property investors. You’ll find out if the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA)’s latest cash rate is here to stay (Die-hard stat folks can read about RBA’s latest cash rate here), and how to cradle that crystal ball so you will stay on top, regardless of the rate.
The main points Ben fleshes out in the article are:
- Reasons behind interest rate changes
- Different drivers of fixed interest rates and variable rates
- Why do investors pay more than owner-occupiers?
- Where are interest rates heading from here?
- When to fix your rates
