January Finance News

Updated: Jan 31

Welcome to 2024! As we step into a new year filled with financial possibilities, let's explore some key developments that have been announced in January. As your dedicated finance broker, I'm here to keep you informed and guide you through the latest trends.

1. Interest Rates on the Decline

One of the significant shifts we've observed this month is the reduction in interest rates by some lenders. The financial landscape is ever evolving, and as we move through January, several lenders have taken the initiative to ease the burden on borrowers. Lower interest rates can translate to reduced mortgage repayments, making homeownership more accessible and affordable. If you're considering a new loan or looking to refinance, now may be an opportune time to explore your options and secure a favourable rate.

2. ING's 5.5% High-Interest Savings Account

In the realm of savings, ING continues to stand out by offering a high-interest savings account with a competitive 5.5% rate. As we navigate economic uncertainties, smart savings strategies becomes increasingly vital. ING's offering presents an attractive opportunity for those seeking to grow their savings. Ensure you read the ING offer conditions to ensure you are eligible.

3. Queensland First Homeowners Grant

For aspiring homeowners in Queensland, there's fantastic news! The First Homeowners Grant, a valuable initiative aimed at supporting first-time buyers, has been extended until June 2025. This grant provides eligible individuals with a substantial $30,000 boost towards their home purchase. If you've been contemplating taking the plunge into homeownership, this extended grant period offers a significant financial incentive. Seize the opportunity, explore the options available, and let's work together to make your homeownership dreams a reality.
