The figure is up from the 69 per cent registered at last year’s survey.

The outcome of the survey, said Mortgage Choice's national manager of corporate affairs Warren O’Rourke, provided an interesting insight into the general public’s expectations of and plans for the short-term future, especially in terms of property investment.

“There has been a significant uplift in Australian’s perception of the country’s financial situation,” he said.
