Hi all. Long time since I last posted - last time was over on the Somersoft forums, I think. Anyway just wanted to run my situation past people. We bought our 1st property nearly two years ago, initially as a PPOR. Using a medico deal through a big 4 bank I got a 95% lend, no LMI, i/o for 15 years, with a 1.3% discount off SVR. Since then we've moved across town and are back to renting and now have tenants in the property, very slightly negatively geared. According to REIV stats (taken with a pinch of salt), median house prices in our suburb have gone up on average 8.78% per annum (though not sure what that period averaged over). So lots of assumptions here, but assuming that we paid market price and that our house appreciates in line with median house price rises our 95% LVR would be pretty close to 80% by the two year mark. Would there be a lot to be gained at this stage in shopping around for a better deal, or asking our current lender? Would the better LVR open more lenders up to us or put us in frame for a better discount? On the flip side my partner is now only part time and we have a dependant, but my salary has improved and is expected to continue to improve over time.
