Hi everyone, and welcome to this week’s roundup of Australian property news.

Firstly, I want to apologise you didn’t see one in your inbox last week! I actually did the email, and the blog is on our website (there is proof!), and then we didn’t press send! Arrgh! So, if you want to see last weeks topics – please head over to This Week In Australian Property #41.   There were some great articles including an article from one of our guest bloggers Gerard Healy from Titlexchange on Caveats, Covenants and Easements.  If you don’t know what these are, and you are looking to buy a house, it’s well worth the read.

I could have repeated last weeks topics, however, thought I should put together a new bunch of articles for you.  So, here they are!

Did you know that about a third of Australians either don’t consider looking for a better home loan rate or if they do, don’t know how to?  Do you know what type of mortgage you have?  It’s worth looking into this to make sure you are getting the right home loan for your circumstances.

Interest rates are rising even though the cash rate set by the RBA isn’t.  I’ve found an article that explains (simply) what is happening.

Interestingly, renting may not always be cheaper than buying.  A Victorian rental report shows where people are renting and for how much.

The Block continued last weekend with the backyard reveals (amazing!); take a look at a renovation of a Californian bungalow (again amazing!), and the latest trend is removable wallpaper (who knew!).

Have a great week.
