I hope you and your family and friends had a happy and safe Christmas and New Year.
Personally, I totally enjoyed the day with my family and I’ve enjoyed catching up with my extended family in Adelaide very much over the last month as well … it was a LONG time between visits!!
I was extremely thankfully, that the COVID scare around New Years didn’t turn into much in Victoria, or any where else in Australia for that matter! And as I write this, we’ve had at least 7 days with no new locally acquired cases, which are the ones everyone seems to get panicked by.
On the finance front, there’s been no shortage of people looking for finance in the last month, so if you’re thinking of buying anytime soon, it’s probably a good idea to get yourself sorted sooner rather than later.
It might be January, but there’s plenty of big news around right now:
- Good news for mortgage broker customers
- New home sales jump 91.8%
- Banks raising their lending standards
- Listings bottom out
