  9. Sydney Housing Bubble! Should I Buy Now??

    This is my unbiased view on the Sydney bubble:

    The reason why property prices in Sydney are so high is simply because:
    – Interest rates in Aust are at record lows with the official cash rate @ 2%. The government wants people to borrow, just not for property, but that temptation is too hard for everyone.

    The Reserve Bank has decided to leave official interest rates unchanged at a record low of 2.25 percent.

    If you would like to know what you’re home or investment property might be currently worth, the
