  • Here's a really simple Cash Flow Analysis to help you understand.  In this example I want to use the example of a 400K property, completed, being purchased in SA.

    For this exercise, I also want to assume you are borrowing 90% plus LMI, so your contribution is 10% of the purchase price, which is  40K  ( this is borrowed against equity)

    You will…[Read more]

  • Not quite ,  I'm afraid. 

    NRAS is voluntary.  To enter a property into the NRAS, an investor must enter an agreement with the NRAS "approved participant" ( sometimes referred to as a consortium) who is responsible for administering the NRAS allocation on their particular dwelling.  The agreement through which this occurs can take the form of a…[Read more]

  • There are 137 consortiums, and only about a dozen (actually, 14 I think) are actually approved by Genworth LMI and various lenders. To get approved, their agreement documentation has to pass the banks and the insurers scrutiny, which means no restrictions on repossessing or disposing of the asset in the event of a delinquency.

    So bottom line is,…[Read more]

  • Troy is absolutely correct.  You get the Commonwealth Component (75% of the total $9981 incentive) paid to you by the ATO via your tax return, whether you have an income to offset it against or not.  A refundable Tax Offset is different to a tax offset. 

    For the State Component ( the other 25% of the total incentive of $9981) it is paid by the…[Read more]

    She is confused, Im afraid.

    When the Commonwealth and State Governments issue  an NRAS approval for a dwelling,  it has an NRAS "entitlement " awarded to it.   The NRAS "entitlement" does not form part of the title, however.  It is simply an eligibility for the property to be entered into the NRAS.

    Now,  here's where people get confused.  if the…[Read more]

    INCORRECT!  Its a refundable Tax Offset- you get it whether you have a taxable income or not.

    You're talking about the QAHC model- which is unfortunately the most expensive in the market, and requires a 25% rental discount.    All other NRAS models have lower fees and require only a 20% rental discount.  I dont know why so many people choose to go with NRAS properties approved under the QAHC model, when there are so many other…[Read more]

    The incentive sits at $9981. 

    75% is paid via the Commonwealth, using a refundable Tax offset.

    25% is paid via the states-

  • This is not a fair comment.  Sorry.  Not trying to "flame" you, but you havent qualified any of your opinions…

    Resale is not complicated.  same as any property.  What do you believe is more complicated?  Can you qualify your comments please?

    I disagree. Subprime loans were for subprime borrowers- being an NRAS property has nothing to do with the borrowers capability to repay the debt. I dont think this is a valid comparison.

    Anyway, it really bugs me when finance professionals bag non bank lenders on these forums.  Without them, none of us would have an industry,, there would have been far less innovation in products, and we would likely all be paying more.
