  • Recession fears are affecting currency markets. The Euro has fallen to its lowest level in nearly two decades against the Greenback, which has soared 11% so far this year.
  • The S&P ASX 200 is down today at 6,594 and the Aussie dollar is now at 67.72 with some experts forecasting it could soon get to 65 cents.
  • Business News reports that border-related labour shortages, government stimulus, persistent supply chain issues and a lengthy construction pipeline have made Perth the most expensive place to build in the country. CBRE’s latest build cost report shows the cost of structural steel has increased almost 40% per tonne on average, while wages have risen only 2.5%.

  • CoreLogic’s Perth home value index increased 0.4% during June, marking the seventh consecutive month of price growth.
  • The new financial year is always a good time to reassess your home or investment property. Call me for a confidential discussion about your property assets.
