Spring Season, Property Market, Inflation, and AU Wages

The spring season is now underway in Australia! temperatures start to warm up, many Australians take advantage of the beautiful outdoors by going on hikes, camping trips, or spending time at the beach. 

This season is often seen as a time of growth and new beginnings. For Australians, this rings especially true as the country emerges from a period of economic uncertainty. Despite challenges posed by global headwinds, there are many reasons to be optimistic about the future of Australia’s economy. 

This month we take a look at the latest news in the property market and how it is being affected by inflation. 

In recent months, much speculation has been about whether Australia is headed for a housing bubble. 

While there is no definitive answer to this question, what is clear is that rising inflation rates are putting pressure on both renters and homeowners alike. As prices increase, people are finding it harder to afford their monthly expenses – including mortgage repayments or rent payments. 

If you’re feeling overwhelmed by all the news headlines about the property market, don’t worry, we’re committed to keeping you up-to-date with the latest industry trends. In this Month’s newsletter, we explore renovation home loans, ASX falls due to inflation, Australian wages, and tips on maximizing your income during retirement. 

Finally, we give our insights into the latest market performance.
