Confidence among property investors continue to rise


The level of loans taken out for investment purposes surges to a new height for the second month in a row, new data has shown.

The AFG Mortgage Index revealed that in April, 33.8% of the new mortgages sold were taken by investors rather than owner-occupiers – a significant increase compared to a year ago.

Western Australia and Queensland are still driving the investor market. Around 47.9% of mortgages sold in WA went to investors, while investors took 32% of new mortgages sold in Queensland. However, it was the renewed enthusiasm among investors in NSW and Victoria which boosted the strong numbers for two consecutive months.
