New research from Roy Morgan has assessed the number of Australian mortgage holders who are in "mortgage stress", using a formula that takes into account household income, costs, and mortgage repayments. The research shows that 20.8% (949,000) of mortgage holders were "At Risk" in the three months to August 2018, down from 21.3% (974,000) In the three months to August 2017. Over the same period, the proportion of mortgage holders that are "Extremely at Risk" decreased from 14.9% (658,000) to 13.5% (596,000). These are the latest findings from Roy Morgan’s Single Source Survey, which is based on in-depth personal interviews conducted face-to-face with over 50,000 Australians per annum in their own homes, including over 10,000 owner-occupied mortgage holders.
