Businesses are starting to boom around Australia
and the recent global events have had us all thinking…how tough are Aussies? With what looks to be the worst of Covid finally starting to ease, many of us are starting to actually reflect on just how full on the last year or so has been.
Melbourne in particular has been hit the hardest with a series of extended lockdowns, Then just when they thought they were out of it for good, it seemed Victorians wound up in yet another one. They are, however, doing really well and they have moved through it with a lot of grace. With the recent lockdown behind them, hopefully, they can move into Spring and the warmer weather with business really picking up again.
As Australians, we really need to stand together and unite, so that if one state does go backwards again, we do not turn on them or ridicule them. But rather support them, as it can happen to any of us at any time. At the time of publishing this article, NSW and Queensland have recorded new cases and have had or are in lockdowns, with WA which has just come out of one, and South Australia down to no new cases.
At HomeSec Business Finance, we would like to reiterate that we are here for all businesses across Australia. We are here to do what we can to help Aussie businesses stay afloat and thrive, because we believe in the Australian way.
At the beginning of the Covid crisis, no one knew what was going on. With panic buying of toilet paper among other things, basic necessities were almost impossible to obtain. It is fair to say that this shock to the economy and to our way of life in general, was scary and difficult for all of us to get our heads around. Despite the uncertainty during these unprecedented times, HomeSec has really tried to be a leader within the business community.
We Kept Lending When Others Stopped
A lot of our competitors in private lending as well as the banks, decided to stop lending for a large part of 2020. Frankly, they were scared to lend in a volatile market. Many also believed the property market would crash. As a result, it was extremely difficult for small businesses to access short-term funding, despite a growing need for it. At HomeSec Business Finance, we have not taken a single day off since the Covid crisis. In fact, we have actually ramped things up. We know how important it is to help small-businesses stay afloat, as they are the backbone of our economy. Incidentally, we have just hit a new record for our loan book. Our bravery and commitment to our business clients has paid off, and our loan book is the largest it has been in our 17 year history.
Fortunately in 2021, things are looking up and there is a lot of hope with the rollout of the vaccine. Hopefully this is the beginning of the end of it. So, it is not all doom and gloom for businesses out there. There are still a lot of businesses doing really well, which are borrowing money from us. There are also other businesses, which need a hand through these tough times to stay on top of things. It is fair to say it has been a confusing time for everyone with some of the rules in place. For example, a lot of Jim’ Mowing franchises were forced to shut down throughout the lockdowns, and yet the council workers were allowed to still mow the lawns.
Nevertheless, the property market is at the highest level it has been at, which is very encouraging for our economy. We think it comes down to the age-old question, which people ask and that is…what is the most secure investment? The answer for us is always real estate. The stock market goes up and down, but real estate tends to stay stable with a steady increase. It does go up and down occasionally, but if you are a conservative investor, real estate in the long run in Australia is safe. That is why HomeSec is going to be around to stay to help small businesses in Australia to continue to thrive.
So, if you or your business clients (if you are a broker, real estate agent, or accountant) need URGENT access short-term business finance from $20,000 to $5,000,000, there’s only one place to go.
