Property Investing Tips & Tricks
Is it easier if I already own a property?
If you already own your own home, you will be familiar with the property purchasing process; it is not that difficult to take your next steps in purchasing a property for investment.
Utilising the equity in your home to finance an investment property is a great way of putting your property to work for you. This will often be a more cost-effective option as it can allow you to borrow the full purchase price, and the settlement costs, without incurring the cost of any mortgage Insurance (provided you have sufficient equity in your home). We can also show you how to let the bank pay all of the purchase cost (so you don’t have to put any cash into the purchase) using your existing equity, and make sure your property is working to increase your overall wealth.
When the return or income you receive from your rental property is less than the expenses of owning that property (interest on your loan, council rates etc) – the property is said to be negatively geared.
In some instances the Australian Taxation Office will allow this ‘loss’ incurred on the investment to be offset against other income, as a tax deduction.
With Depreciation being an acceptable deduction for most property investors, a property may even be cash flow positive but still able to get some negative gearing benefits, meaning a tax deduction. It is important that you get a Depreciation Schedule on your investment property to ensure you are getting the maximum deductions allowed.
|Loss which may be claimed as a tax deduction||3,000|
*Consult with your tax adviser to see how negative gearing can be applied to your personal situation.
Seek independent financial advice
The old adage that if an investment opportunity sounds too good to be true, it usually is – holds true. Always be sure to research your investment decision thoroughly. Be sure to seek independent property and financial advice.
If you are turning to property investment for capital growth, tax benefits and as a retirement strategy, it is very important to learn as much as you can, especially if it is an area you’re not completely familiar with.
