Slowdown In New Mortgage Approvals Shouldnt Discourage Buyers From Entering The Market, Says Rick Otton

Slowdown In New Mortgage Approvals Shouldnt Discourage Buyers From Entering The Market, Says Rick Otton

(PRWEB) July 25, 2014

New data from the Bureau of Statistics shows that around 52,902 home loans were granted to new owner-occupiers. This figure is almost the same as the volume of loans approved last April, reported on 11 July 2014.

In light of this latest real estate news, Rick Otton, esteemed property coach and best-selling author, tells Aussies that the slowdown in mortgage approvals shouldnt intimidate them, since seller financing can help buyers purchase property for sale even without new home loans.

Some industry analysts say that the growth for loan approvals in the country is now moving flatly. Meaning theyre not expecting any movement or increase with the volume of home loans being granted to buyers, within the next few months, that will exceed the record breaking number of loans granted within the past couple of months. However, they also pointed out that the cooling of the market will not have any significant impact on new owner-occupiers, because first-homebuyers only make up 12.6 percent of the entire volume approved mortgages last May, he explained.

People are only scrambling to get their hands on new home loans when they want to buy a home or property investment, since its the process theyve been exposed to all their lives. Their parents, other family members, and friends follow the same route, so they dont see any reason to move away from the tried and tested way. However, not everyone is able to qualify for a new home loan, given that the banks arent giving away home loans that easily nowadays, Mr. Otton commented.

Mr. Otton then said in a new interview for We Buy Houses Radio that rather than look for new home loans, buyers could use old home loans as they key into a new home or a property investment.

Contrary to what official data might say, there a lot of mortgages out there in the market right now. What Im talking about, however, are not new home loans, but old mortgages already attached to various property for sale around the country. Now that mortgages approvals wont rise up anytime soon, assuming the payments on old home loans is the most efficient way for buyers to grab a hold of property right away, Mr. Otton discussed.
