Let’s get you started with investing in property the right way.
There’s no doubt about it – investing in property is one of the best ways to increase your wealth and set yourself up for the future. With the right property and financing, your assets will appreciate in value while returning a profitable yield from rental income. And since property value is not reliant on the unpredictable ups and downs of the stock market, it provides you with some much-needed stability and helps you to diversify your investment portfolio.
It’s important to start your property investment on the right foot. By organising your property portfolio with the right loan, you will be able to maximise your borrowing capacity and make every one of your hard-earned dollars work hard for you. When looking at negative gearing, capital gains tax, depreciation, offset accounts and other factors, the team at Auspak will make sure that you choose the right loan and product for your circumstances.

The approval criteria for investment loans can get quite complicated, especially if you need to take into account negative gearing benefits or other factors to prove that you can afford the loan. Banks consider investment loans to be a higher risk than standard home loan, so you will need to be in a strong financial position to qualify.
Here are the basic lending criteria:
5-10% of the property value in genuine savings
A good credit history, with an above average credit score

Loan applications are assessed by banks and other lenders based on different criterias. You will often find that your borrowing capacity varies (sometimes quite substantially) depending on which one you choose to borrow from, depending on the lender that you choose. Here are some ways that lending criteria can differ:
Rental income – most banks will only take into account 70%-80% of your rental income, whereas others will consider up to 100%
Other income – lenders will differ in the way that they treat other income like overtime, bonuses, commission, allowances, dividends, trust distributions and self employed income
Negative gearing – not every lender takes negative gearing benefits into account
