  • A good year ahead for property investors Formula 1 Finance
    home buyers might be keen to purchase property the reality is most of them will not have enough deposit to make it happen According to the results some markets may still be flat but growth will occur over the next 12 months although at more moderate rates than in 2009 and early 2010 In general I would expect the market to gather more strength in metropolitan markets in the first half of the year with improved confidence spilling over into regional markets in the second half While growth rates will not be as spectacular as they have been in previous years property is still offering substantial returns and will lure investors back in larger numbers Throughout 2011 the property market will continue to be supported by strong economic fundamentals such as strong population growth low levels of unemployment and buoyant consumer and business confidence Investors could be snapping up some bargins due to forced sales and will be dependent on how large interest rate increases are If rate increases are kept to a minimum or even remain stable this will allow people the breathing space they need to adjust and so may avoid forced sales Brett Colley 365 Posts Brett has been involved in management in the finance industry for over 13 years Brett s diverse experience in finance real estate developments and all facets of the construction industry confirms Formula 1 Finance to be an innovative professional finance broking firm On January 17 2011 Enconomy House prices Inflation Interest rate Leave a comment Comments are closed Finance News RBA rate announcement Banks Mining Towns and Rental Yields Houses outperform units in capitals Positive return for Qld market Whats happening with Vacant Land Sales Credit conditions restricting construction Housing Values Rise Housing Facts Rates on Hold New home sales at
