What is your hot tip on interest rates this year?
Crystal ball stuff this… however, I believe rates will stay constant throughout this year. We may see a small increase before the end of the year.
Any tips for first home owners saving for their deposit?
The most powerful tip here is to have a written Budget. A proper budget will help you achieve your savings goals much faster.
Fixed or Variable?
My personal view is Variable, however, I will give you the advantages and disadvantages of both for you to make an informed decision.
Coffee or Tea?
A Great Caramel Late, although the doctor probably recommends otherwise.
What is your hot tip on the suburbs to watch in the Hunter for great investment potential?
I believe any suburb along the new Hunter Expressway will be worth watching for investment opportunities. Cameron Park especially as it is the Gateway to Newcastle. We have seen good growth over the past 18months and this will continue over the next 5 years.
