Spare a thought for the poor brokers out there.
SMH reports Demand for new home loans fell to a nine-year low in April as rising interest rates dampen enthusiasm for housing.

Yes thank god but there are a million investors.
Personally i cant keep up with the demand and hence dont get chance to post as often as I would like.
I agree though if you relied on FTB for your business i think you would be going hungry.

Definately seeing a drastic decrease across the board. A lot of the mortgage brokers i speak to feel the same way. There are a lucky few at the moment, but banks are becoming more restrictive. But i think thinks will look up later in the year.
