Thanks Marty, very interesting.
Rates are still well below when I took out my mortgage so I better not complain too much.
I was under the impression that higher rates for investor loans were related to regulatory changes introduced a while back. Is the same true of tightening of IO payments? I was looking for another period of IO, which a few months ago our old broker had thought would not be an issue. We will have to see.
Thanks again for the input, I am less a 'property investor' and more 'renting out my former PPOR because I may want to return there' so I don't keep up to date with these things as much as I possibly should.
