A 1% increase in interest rates reduces your borrowing capacity by about 10%.
First of all, don't panic! Carla Nesci, Lending Specialist at Wealthi says:
"It can be a great time to apply for a "pre-approval" from the bank and ensure interest rates for 3 months until you find it is your next investment property or your first home."
In this clear example video, Carla explains the variation and gives you a better understanding of your finances in a rising interest rate environment.
