There are plenty of prospective homebuyers out there, but they want professional advice and guidance in these uncertain times, according to mortgage broker Aussie.

In a survey conducted by Aussie, 54% of prospective home-buyers want guidance with property and nance.

Uncertainty is the biggest challenge to 42% of the 1,000 people surveyed; they want to take advantage of the current conditions of the real estate market but don’t know how to.
Aussie Chief Customer Officer David Smith says the result is missed opportunities and unrealised goals for potential home buyers.

“In a market which sees prices in some capital cities continuing to fall, interest rates remaining the lowest on record, a range of refinancing options, access to lender cash back incentives, and a range of government initiatives and grants available, there are many opportunities for both first-home buyers and home-owners to secure their goals,” he says.

A significant number of respondents said Covid-19 was responsible for making their property goal more important now and accelerating their plans.
