I’ve also thrown in my own question, and I think you’ll enjoy hearing the answer: - "Is it really true that you can get a finance approval in as little as two days?"

You’ll find out today.

Some of the questions we discuss today:

  • Will buying higher-yielding properties in regional Australia increase borrowing capacity? And will that allow the buyer to purchase more properties?
    • In the current lending environment, high-yielding residential properties do not have a material impact on borrowing capacity.
  • What factors are important to look at other than interest rates when looking for a loan for an investment property? Property Market
    • Focus on finding a lender that can actually meet your requirements and objectives and be selective with the person or bank that’s going to be taking you through the process.
  • Are interest-only loans back?
    • For the right borrower, interest-only loans never really went away. 
  • How do you release the equity from your property portfolio?
    • Do a review of your property portfolio to get a sense of how much equity you have. The banks will allow you to borrow up to 80% against any one asset, so if you’re only leveraged up to 50%, you may be able to release that remaining 30% to fund deposit and purchase costs on your next property. 
  • Can you get a loan approved in a couple of days?
    • There are lenders in the current marketplace that can turn loan applications around quickly. To get a loan approved quickly, you need to:
      • Deal with a bank that’s capable of doing fast loans
      • Make sure that you have 100% of your required documentation upfront
      • Discuss any areas of complexity up front before starting your application

Some of our favourite quotes from the show: Fees To Look Out For When Buying Your First Property

“In my mind, residential real estate’s a high growth, relatively lower-yield investment.” – Michael Yardney  

“While interest rates are interesting, they’re probably not the most important factor at all.” – Michael Yardney

“People sort of forget that that’s their asset that they can borrow against, so yes, see what your loan-to-value ratios are, also see are your current loans appropriate for today’s marketplace and can you maybe save a little bit in interest by just asking.”— Michael Yardney
