    RBA Claims It’s Better To Rent Than Buy

    It’s the perennial property debate – will you be financially better off buying a house rather than renting one?

    In a recently released report, the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) says that Melbourne tenants have the upper hand financially; at least for now.

    The study Is Housing Overvalued? argues that costs applicable only to homeowners, such as land rates, purchase price and interest rates, makes renting the more financially sound option.

    In order for buyers to catch up to renters, house prices would need to rise by almost 2.5% per annum. The RBA says recent figures indicate that house prices are forecast to either slow or decline over the coming few years, meaning that in the short-term at least, renters will continue to be better off.

    The study’s authors, however, were quick to point out that the report only applies to owner-occupiers, and that property investors usually find themselves in a better place financially due to tax breaks.

    How Can I Speed Up My Move And Save Money?

    In the two years that we’ve been helping move Melbourne households, we’ve observed lots of little tips and tricks that you can make the most of on moving day to ensure a speedy and cheap move.

    • Organisation is key. If you’re boxing your smaller belongings yourself, try to organise it prior to our removalists rocking up so as soon as we get there we’re good to go. If you’d like to use our Pack ‘n’ Wrap ‘n’ Unwrap service, our team can come out and have everything organised either the day of your move or prior to it.
    • It can be tricky but, if at all possible, schedule your move for a day and time where Melbourne traffic is most quiet. We find the quieter times are mid-morning to mid-afternoon early in the week, and on Sundays.

    Help out. At Move On Removals, we’re more than happy for you and your friends and family to help us load and unload our removal trucks. The more help, the quicker the items will be loaded and on their way to their new destination, meaning the less you’ll pay.

    Can I Move My Smaller Belongings Myself In My Car?

    You’re more than welcome to box your smaller items on the day of your move and then transport them to your new home yourself.

    However, we’ve helped move thousands of households and we’ve noticed that often it’s the littlest items that cause the most stress on moving day. The fragile items, like glassware, ornaments and photo frames. And the small items that are easily misplaced, like cutlery and keepsakes.

    Our Pack ‘n’ Wrap ‘n’ Unwrap service allows you to sit back and relax, as our professional and experienced removalists take care of packing these delicate items for you.

    We’ll use bubblewrap, gladwrap and other tools to ensure your items have the smoothest move from your old house to your new house. And they’ll be packed by experienced removalists who know exactly what order your fragile items should be placed in to ensure maximum safety.
