Investment in the share market has become high risk. It is in this type of economic climate that the Australian residential property market has historically performed well. With interest rates at an all-time low, if you have been thinking of purchasing a home or investment property, now just might be the perfect time.

Interest-only home loans predominantly benefit property investors and are not recommended for owner-occupiers because they do not allow you to build equity in your property.
Pre-approval—also known as conditional approval or approval in principle—is one of the best ways to find out how much you can borrow and if your financial situation meets the lenders credit policy before making an offer on a property.
