Property sector for 2010

| May 14, 2010

We are nearing the end of the financial year and the property sector has had a rocking year this year. there has been up and downs and people scrambling to make the first home owner deadline and then the market slump and rise again.

2010 has been a bumpy ride for first home owners and property investors and has left many with the  idea in the mind have they or have they not done the right thing,  those are the people that took out loans and now seeing the rising interest rates ( possibly rising even more ) , investors  who bought at higher prices  when the rush for property was on and the naive people who got suckered into o to buy  a property without doing their math’s and taking into account rising interest rates and now paying the price with mortgage stress.
