What are my options?
To make things simple, there are two ways to invest in real estate. The first scenario is when you are an existing homeowner. You can look at using your equity in your existing home for your deposit. The second scenario is when you don’t have an existing property and you use a cash deposit.
Current home buyers have the advantage of experience behind them. This time around you don’t have the advantage of Government initiatives and tax exemptions to help with your deposit. What you do have is an existing asset that can be used to make your next property purchase more affordable.
In some cases, you may be able to use the equity of your existing property to buy your next one. How you’re using your current property can also affect your purchasing power. Are you renting or living in the current property you own? These are the types of questions a Mortgage Broker will ask you when you’re looking to expand your property portfolio.
Using the equity in your current home is one of the most effective ways to save money for your next deposit. Thousands of Australians have taken advantage of this strategy.

Have a clear goal in mind for what you want out of buying your first investment property. How you intend to use this property in the future can affect your chances of buying today.
