The average mortgage payment for a family of four in Australia has risen by almost $300 over the past year to $2,300, according to the latest data from the Mortgage Choice Index (MCI).
The median mortgage payment is $1,845.
That means the average mortgage has increased by almost five per cent.
The mortgage rate has also increased from 3.7 per cent to 3.9 per cent over the same period.
That is a significant increase from a year ago when it was just 0.3 per cent and was just 2.9 points below the national average of 3.2 per cent in June.
“It’s not all good news for mortgage holders,” said John Martin, CEO of Mortgage Choice, the leading independent mortgage lender.
“There are a lot of good things to be said about mortgage payments.
“That is the main driver of rising mortgage rates.” “
In Queensland, the median house price has increased from $932,000 to $1.2 million, an increase of 12 per cent, while the median income has increased $6,800, or 4 per cent from $63,400 to $65,800. “

In Western Australia, the average house price is up from $1 million to $950,000, an 8 per cent increase.
“This is good news and we have seen the growth of the median and average prices,” Mr Martin said.
“The median house is growing faster than the average income, which is good for homebuyers.”
But it is also good news that homebuyer prices have been falling for years.
“The figures for the top 20 regions in Australia also show a rise in median prices, with the Sydney market up 12 per-cent to $939,000.
He said it was important to remember that the median home price for each of the states and territories in Australia is calculated using the median sales price in each region, which may not be the best indicator of what is going on in the real estate market. “
In some of the more rural areas of Victoria there’s still a lot to do to close the gap with the rest of Australia,” Mr King said.
He said it was important to remember that the median home price for each of the states and territories in Australia is calculated using the median sales price in each region, which may not be the best indicator of what is going on in the real estate market.
“When the median price is higher, it is a sign that people are still buying property, but there is more demand for homes in other regions,” Mr Kingsford said.

What’s the real interest rate?
The average monthly mortgage payment in the MCI is based on a hypothetical median sales value of $600,000 across all Australian cities and towns.
It is calculated in a way that takes into account many factors such as the number of properties in a market, interest rates and the availability of finance.
For example, in Sydney, a typical $1m mortgage is expected to cost $4,200 over 20 years.
“But a more sophisticated analysis shows that a typical homebuy has more than a million dollars worth of equity, which will allow them to build a property and pay their mortgage,” Mr McNeil said.
If interest rates stay low, Mr McNeils predicted the average monthly payment would be $1 per $100 of principal and interest.
“What you’ll see is more of the housing market coming back to the middle of the market and more affordability,” Mr Smith said.
What to do if your mortgage is overdue?
The Australian Federal Government has introduced legislation that will allow borrowers to appeal against overdue payments and the Reserve Bank will be monitoring these developments.
Interest rates are expected to remain low until the end of March.
“We’re in uncharted territory here,” Mr Jackson said.
“[The government] are really doing something right.”
Mr King, of Mortgage Choices, said the best way to prepare for a rise is to be realistic about your future income and the cost of your home.
“Most people will be able to get by with the same income in the near term, and the biggest impact of a higher interest rate will be on lower income people,” he said.
Mr Martin, the CEO of the MCi, said that despite the rising mortgage rate, there was still plenty of room for borrowers to make up the difference.
“If you are on the low end of the spectrum in terms of income, you can take advantage of this, especially if you are looking to buy a home for the first time, or if you have a family,” he told the ABC.
With a higher mortgage, you’ll pay less, and that will reduce the gap between what
