Episode 12 – Fixed Rates Rising and Variable Not Budging


Welcome to the twelth episode of the Expat Mortgage Podcast where we discuss the latest issues of securing and maintaining an Australian mortgage whilst you are a Australian expat.

Interest rates are the theme of the month with everyone having an opinion on whether its best to retain a variable or fixed rate mortgage.

In today’s episode we discuss what the difference is between a fixed rate versus a variable rate loan and what Australian expats need to be aware of when planning for future interest rate rises.

While the Reserve Bank of Australia has been adamnet about interest rates not changing until 2024 the money market and rates being offered by the banks suggest otherwise.
