Budget 2017: Housing

SPECIAL EDITION

For those of you who haven’t had your head in the sand these past few weeks, it would have been hard to miss that last night was budget night!

With housing affordability key for our readers, I’ve pulled together an extra email this week with relevant articles that specifically focus on this element of the Federal Budget 2017.

The three key audiences addressed in the budget are first-home buyers, retirees and foreign investors.  However, if you dig a little deeper there are also changes to tax deductions that can be claimed for investment properties; and the levy imposed on banks may end up being passed on through increases to mortgage rates.

Hope there’s been a win in here for you!

Enjoy!
