Luke on 2CC – Rising interest rates and your mortgage

Financial Planner Luke Smith joined 2CC Talking Canberra 1206AM in The Money Show which aired on Friday 21 October 2022.  They start the show by talking about luxury car tax, a tax that was introduced to protect the Australian car manufacturing. This week’s topic for discussion however is: Rising interest rates and your mortgage. They are on the rise after a long period of being at record lows, so what might mortgage holders think about? 

Key topics covered include:

  • Rising interest rates are expected to continue through to Christmas and perhaps into early next year.
  • If you’ve got term deposits, keep the terms short to take advantage of a rising interest rate environment.
  • For those with loans, Luke offers several different strategies to consider.
  • Luke explores the benefits of using a mortgage broker.
  • Are there other things you can consider in the family budget with rising costs?
  • The benefits of paying with cash.
  • Putting money into super vs mortgage repayments
  • Also look at credit cards, look at lower costs options.
  • Finally, Luke shares his top tips around those with mortgages in a rising interest rate environment
