Welcome to the May edition of the Smartline Report.
Believe it or not, the end of the financial year is approaching. In this month’s newsletter, we share our top tips to make the most of your finances, and to set yourself up for the coming financial year. We also take a close look at bridging finance – how it works and what you need to know before securing this type of finance. Finally, in the property market, you will see that there is plenty of growth in areas outside the major capital cities, with predictions about Australia’s next country town booms.
I hope you enjoy reading the newsletter and please call me if you wish to discuss anything
regarding your loans or future plans.
