type of property they'll accept as security against a loan, as they need to
ensure they can offload the asset quickly if you default on your mortgage in
order to cover their costs.
this in mind, some types of real estate are more favourably looked at than
others by the banks and they'll assess the location, size, and features of a
property before accepting it as security.
instance, a regional town or small one-bedroom apartment in a new
high-rise complex will be less likely to pass the test than an inner suburban
detached family home or spacious apartment.
