Lead story this week is the new rules being put in place by APRA to restrict lending, particularly on interest-only loans. Prepare for more changes to come through from the banks as they look to balance their loan portfolios.

A staggering number of homes need to be built in Sydney in the next 20 years – check out the current planning discussions in place to cope with this growth.

I’ve included some renovation inspiration and tips for you for any DIYers as we get nearer to the Easter and Anzac Day break period.

Auction clearance rates remain high this week with less properties available, and include the sale of a warehouse used in a number of Offspring episodes.

Lastly, we continue our broker profiles with a focus on Dien Le this week.  Go to our website to find out a bit more about him.
