The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) has hiked interest rates eight times this year - from a record-low 0.1 per cent to the current 3.1 per cent - sending mortgage repayments through the roof.
CoreLogic and Aussie Home Loans crunched the numbers of just how high monthly mortgage repayments could shift for borrowers across each capital city and rest-of-state regions, based on where the cash rate is forecast to go.
The Your Next Mortgage Move report revealed the numbers across the capitals and regions – unveiling how those who borrowed on the lowest fixed rates in May 2021 could see mortgage repayments shift almost $2,000 higher per month in Sydney.
Even in Australia’s most affordable capital city, monthly mortgage repayments in Darwin could shift $863 higher per month for borrowers under certain conditions, and those in Regional South Australia could be looking at increases around $590 per month.
Which suburbs will see the biggest mortgage increases?
In Sydney, those living in the Northern Beaches could see their repayments hit $9,584 per month - an increase of $3,528.
Those in the Baulkham Hills and Hawkesbury area could see their monthly repayments hit $7,223 per month - an increase of $2,659.
Sydney’s wealthy eastern suburbs area could see repayments hit $7,043, a rise of $2,593 per month.
