1. Lots of capital

Lots of capital

Having lots of savings gives you a number of options. It’s important to keep firm goals in order to get the most for your money.

You will need to do quite a bit of research into the highest growing suburbs as well as whether you are better off buying a home or apartment.

2. Not a lot of capital

If you are set on buying a home but don’t have the savings just yet there are a number of ways to enter the market.

You may choose to buy your home with other people like family or friends. This option requires a lot of planning and trust in the individuals you will be making the purchase with.

Another option is to contribute a small deposit. Deposits can be made for as little as 5% of the purchase price. If you decide to do this you will need to look into the cost of lenders mortgage insurance as this will be required on such a large loan.

Not a lot of capital

Asset portfolio

When you have a portfolio of properties you can use these as guarantees on any new purchases. This means you can borrow more and in the event that you cannot pay the loan your properties can be used by the bank to recoup the balance.
