In Australia, it’s possible for just about anyone with a deposit to invest in property, whether you are a low-income earner on a tight budget, or a well-off executive with loads of disposable income.
Rentvesting has become increasingly popular in recent times. Last year, research from the Property Investment Professionals of Australia (PIPA) found that one third of first-time buyers opted to become ‘rentvestors’, rather than homeowners. Here’s what you need to know before deciding whether rentvesting is right for you. But first, let’s look at...
Australians love investing in property, and it’s no wonder why. The property market offers a myriad of opportunities to potentially grow wealth, irrespective of one’s professional background or skillset. However, there are certain habits that successful property investors often have in common. Let’s take a look.
Generations have built their wealth on bricks and mortar, secure in the knowledge that residential real estate can deliver regular, tax-friendly rent returns and long term growth in value. If you take the time and select your investment properties well, property can deliver good returns for long-term investors.
There are few differences between what you need to do to borrow for a property you’ll live in and for one you’ll rent out. Some lenders charge a higher interest rate for investment properties because their risk may be higher. But this may not necessarily be the case.
If you’re unsure how an investment loan would potentially impact your financial circumstances, we can help you to explore the implications.
If you’ve owned your own home for a few years, you could have built up quite a bit of equity in your property. Equity is the value of an asset not subject to any lender’s interest. For example, a property worth $500,000 with a mortgage loan of $150,000 has equity of $350,000. Instead of finding a cash deposit to buy an investment property, you could use this equity as the deposit.
When you buy a property, costs such as establishment fees, solicitor fees and stamp duty add up to several thousand dollars. Instead of trying to find cash to pay these fees, take them into account in your borrowings. That means you don’t need thousands upon thousands of dollars in savings to get started.

A property is negatively geared when the costs of owning it – interest on the loan, bank charges, maintenance, repairs and capital depreciation – exceeds the income it produces. Simply put, your investment must make a loss before you can claim a tax benefit.
Aside from negative gearing, there are a host of other things to consider for successful property investments. We’ll talk you through it.
You can also positively gear a property. This occurs when the investment income exceeds your interest expense (and other possible deductions). Note that you may be subject to additional tax on any income derived from a positively geared investment.
You should also consider any other costs involved when deciding on your investment property strategy. Let’s get together.
