Home Living : June 8th 2010
2 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, June 8, 2010 Investors return » ADVERTISING FEATUREHOMELIVING Property investors are returning to the market, according to new data from St George Bank. According to the bank, the value of investor finance rose 3 per cent in March, easily reversing the 0.8 per cent decline in February. Investor housing finance has now risen 24 per cent for the year. HomeWorld Display Village chief Frank Death says volatility of the share market is also a factor investors might be factoring into their investment plans. ''Many people already have considerable investments in the share market through their superannuation, and property is a good way to spread their investment risk, as well as being a direct investment over which they have full control,'' Mr Death said. ''With property values in many areas increasing, it means some households have more equity in the family home to borrow against for their finance. It is a way to supplement superannuation benefits and there is negative gearing providing taxation benefits. ''We need property investment to take the pressure off rents as more people compete for rental properties, so there is sufficient rental accommodation for those who need to rent. ''Property investors can have good returns on their property investment as well as the likelihood of good capital gains," Mr Death said.
