Five key steps you can follow for property investment

  1. Buy in the right location. As investors, it is imperative you buy a property that has strong tenant demand good capital growth potential. To find out whether or not a suburb has good growth potential and strong tenant demand, it is imperative to do your research.

  2. By researching the population growth, average rental income and vacancy rates in the areas that appeal to you, you will be better placed to make a more successful investment decision.

  3. Ensure the property is close to things like public transport, restaurants, cafes and educational institutions. The fact is, tenants, love to be close to the action, so it is important to make sure your investment property is as well.

  4. Make sure your finances are in order before finalising any property purchase. While you may have been pre-approved for finance earlier in the year, recent changes to investment lending policy and pricing may affect your ability to finalise your finances come settlement. Remember to keep your finance strategy front of mind and double-check any financial advice you’ve received before placing an offer on a property.

  5. Keep your eyes peeled for any maintenance or renovations a property requires. If you know your property may require simple renovations or repairs down the track, you can start planning for them now.

Discover how much equity you may have access to 

If you own property already, we'll investigate if you could refinance and tap into the equity in your home to finance your new investment property. Let Angela Hanly - Mortgage Choice Broker, do the calculations to discover how much equity you may have access to.

Equity is the difference between your home’s market value and the balance of your home loan. So, if your property is worth $500,000, and the balance of your mortgage is $200,000, you may have $300,000 in home equity. Some lenders will let you use this equity as a deposit on an investment property in place of cash savings.
