There is a strange phenomenon currently apparent in the American economy. The New York Times of 19th October reported it like this:

When gas prices fall, Americans reliably do two things that don’t make much sense. They spend more of the windfall on gasoline than they would if the money came from somewhere else. And they don’t just buy more gasoline. They switch from regular gas to high-octane.

A new report by the JPMorgan Chase Institute, looking at the impact of lower gas prices on consumer spending, finds the same pattern as earlier studies. The average American would have saved about $41 a month last winter by buying the same gallons and grades. Instead, Americans took home roughly $22 a month. People, in other words, used almost half of the windfall to buy more and fancier gas.

In fact it was just over 20 years ago in 1996, when trail commissions came into being. At that period in time, margins were solid and broker groups were approaching lenders for their slice of the pie. It seemed like a good deal for smaller lenders, who began to break ranks and pay trail. The big lenders cottoned on quickly and followed suit. It was a win-win situation for everybody.

There are options to break into the market: outer suburbs, units and flats still offer great value. So if you are considering investing, it may be time to look at what finance options are on trend or available to you.
