Whether you're after rental income, capital growth or a retirement nest egg, you may consider investing in property.
Things to consider
Decide your goals
Are you planning to supplement your income with a rental property, use negative gearing for tax benefits, or are you aiming to make a profit from the property's capital growth?1
Do your figures
Work out how much you can afford to spend as well as your repayments. If you're a Westpac customer, you can see some of the options available to you through Westpac Wonder.
What about using existing equity?
If you have equity available in your home, you may be able to use this to help buy your investment property.
Choosing the right investment loan
One size doesn't fit all when it comes to investment loans. Maybe you want the certainty of a fixed rate or the flexibility of a variable rate.
