If you’re a first-home buyer specifically, it’s a great time to take advantage of the banks’ willingness to lend you money.
And if you’re an established home buyer, it’s a perfect time to trade up your home, which may be worth a little less today but so will the property you are buying.
On the other hand, if you’re an investor, the right time to buy is when you have the finance to do so and it fits in with your long-term plans.
Don’t try and time the market.
