Market Insights for 2024 and beyond: Expert Opinions from Mal Cayley and Paul Westcott with Jade Harrison from Hot 91.

Listen to Mal Cayley from Investor Property and Paul Westcott from BrokerCo speaking to Jade Harrison from Hot 91’s Hot Property to get their insights on current market trends and predictions for the future. Here’s what they had to say.

As we navigate the dynamic property market of 2024, it’s essential to stay informed and strategic.

Banks Are Working Harder to Win Clients

The competitive landscape among banks has intensified, leading them to work harder than ever to attract and retain clients. This increased competition is good news for borrowers, as it means more opportunities to secure better rates and terms.

It’s Worth Asking for a Better Rate

Both Mal and Paul emphasise that now is a crucial time for borrowers to actively seek better rates. With the market’s competitive nature, people have more leverage to negotiate favourable terms. “People have the confidence to ask for a better rate, and so they should,” says Paul.

Looking Ahead to 2024: Interest Rates and Market Trends

Interest Rates: What to Expect

A major point of discussion is the direction of interest rates. Many are wondering if we can expect drops from the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) in the coming year. While it’s difficult to predict with certainty, the consensus is that rates are currently at an all-time high, with the assessment rate creating significant pressure on borrowers.

Property Prices: A Likely Rise

Despite high interest rates, property prices are expected to rise. The current 2.5-3% buffer in place helps ensure that borrowers can manage their loans even if rates increase, which adds a layer of stability to the market.

The Rise of Renegotiations

Paul anticipates a significant rise in people looking to renegotiate their rates this year. With the high assessment rates and competitive banking environment, now is the perfect time for borrowers to revisit their loan terms and seek better deals.
