Why more investors are opting for brokers.
January 19, 2019
A recent survey conducted on Australian property investors revealed that
they are increasingly turning to mortgage brokers for lending, with 75% of
investors stating that they had used a broker, and 83% of investors intend to
use a broker when seeking their next loan.
The survey found that one of the driving factors behind this shift was
tighter lending restrictions on property investors.
“Our survey results show that rather than be defeated, educated property
investors are opting to use professionals to assist them to achieve their goals
– regardless of the lending environment.”
Other key statistics from the PIPA survey include:
- 68% of investors think that higher interest rates for investors compared
to owner occupiers is unfair
- 38% of investors had no difficulty in refinancing despite tighter
- 22% of investors said they are having difficulty refinancing
- 30% of investors have either switched or intend to switch from
interest-only to principal and interest given higher rates
