It's no secret that investors have been a major driving force in Australia's real estate market over the last year.
While first home buyer figures continue to remain low, a recent blog post from CoreLogic RP Data has highlighted the continued presence of investment buyers nationwide over March.
This could be encouraging for anyone sitting on the fence about beginning or expanding their investment portfolio with real estate in Brunswick.
In a post by RP Data's senior research analyst Cameron Kusher, he outlines that March saw authorised lending institutions provided $31.6billion over the month.
This represents a 3.5 per cent increase over the month, and a huge 15.4 per cent over the last 12 months.
Of this amount, $12.9billion was secured by investors moving into the Australian property market – rising by 6.4 per cent over the month, and 20.9 per cent annually.
With the investment market showing no signs of slowing down in the near future, now could be a great time to begin considering your own investment options in Melbourne.
