How do interest rates impact the property market?
Understanding the impact interest rates will have on your property portfolio is a key part in setting your financial strategy.
Interest rate fluctuations are an ongoing part of the property investment cycle. Many new investors are concerned about their ability to manage if interest rates increase but there are many ways that you can safeguard yourself in the event of an inevitable rate rise. For one, you can make sure that that equity in your portfolio is accessible through a buffer account in the event you need to access this to ride through a high rate period. Another important safeguard is ensuring that you have a balanced portfolio that includes high yielding properties that can easily weather a rate rise.
