    Selling IP - 50% now and %05 after 6 months

    Thanks. No the premium factor has not been factored in as I have also had an offer from a cash buyer which I might consider if the price is right.

    Selling IP - 50% now and %05 after 6 months

    Selling IP - 50% now and %05 after 6 months

    I have an IP for sale and have been offered the price that I am happy about.

    Fixed Term Interest

As all the banks are now lowering their fixed interest term eg 6.99% with 1 year term and the prediction is that there are further cuts to come - is it right time to switch now to variable rate as I have put my property on the market...

    Cash management accounts/Term deposits

    Term Deposit Hi Jingo Westpac is currently offering 8% for 5 years fixed term. This will suit you if your fixed home loan has 5 years to go. They also offer other terms as well. With subprime loan crisis in US I will be more comfortable with Westpac than BankWest Good Luck Viphar
