  • Jamie Moore replied to the topic Equity Release and Refinance in the forum Finance 3 years, 9 months ago

    They’re two different things.

    Having said that – a refinance and equity release often happen at the same time.

    Cheers

  • Jamie Moore replied to the topic Refinancing to another lender in the forum Finance 5 years, 2 months ago

    As mentioned above – destructibility depends on purpose.

    Borrowing against an investment property to pay yourself back money that you’ve previously contributed wouldn’t justify a deductible expense.

    I’m not an accountant though so please seek pro advice.

    Cheers

  • Jamie Moore replied to the topic Increasing the limit on existing lines of credit in the forum Finance 5 years, 2 months ago

    All depends on the lenders policy and your borrowing capacity.

    Some lender are still ok with cashouts up to 80% for investment purposes – it generally involves a full application process.

    Cheers

    Hi Dave

    What’s the issue from the banks perspective? Is it lack of a deposit?

    What size block are you looking to build on?

    Which lender have you approached so far?

    Cheers

    Hi there

    What benefits do you believe you’ll obtain by investing via a different entity?

    Cheers

  • Jamie Moore replied to the topic Cross-collateralisation ever a good idea? in the forum Finance 5 years, 9 months ago

    Hi there

    Best to avoid crossing – it can cause a real mess.

    Having said that – you can have all loans with the one lender and keep them uncrossed. It’s quite easy to do.

    Let your broker know if you’re unhappy with the structure he/she has outlined. The $1k fee seems a bit rich if they’re providing you with poor structure advice.

    Cheers

    Hi there

    This is an area I’ve started to take a closer look at. Some clients are starting to go down this path and my wife runs an airbnb management company so I’ve taken more of an interest in it.

  • Jamie Moore replied to the topic Interest Rate in the forum Finance 5 years, 12 months ago

    Agree with Richard – generally around the 7% mark

    Having said that – there are other factors involved when taking into account max borrowing for investors. Some lenders add back negative gearing, some take a higher percentage of rental income, some cap the yield….the list goes on.

    Cheers

    Hit your current lender up for a lower rate

    Most lenders differentiate between owner occ and investment.

    With some lenders it’s a straight forward process – with others it can be more difficult.

  • Jamie Moore replied to the topic First investment help in the forum Help Needed! 6 years, 2 months ago

    Avoid the one stop shops that source and finance property.

    Most are real estate agents in disguise – making massive commissions from overpriced off the plan properties.

    Hi there

    Any particular reason you’re narrowing it down to only NSW?

  • Jamie Moore replied to the topic Investment loan structure when ppor is paid off. in the forum Finance 6 years, 2 months ago

    Sounds like you’ve got the correct structure in mind.

    The loans don’t have to be via two different lenders – you can have the two loans (equity release and IP) with the one lender and still keep the loans uncrossed. The benefit here is that you’ll be able to negotiate a better rate discount due to the higher aggregate borrowings. If you’re on a…[Read more]

  • Jamie Moore replied to the topic How does bank or valuer value renovation? in the forum Value Adding 6 years, 2 months ago

    Keep the house uncluttered and well presented for when the valuer arrives.

    If you’ve got strong, recent, comparable sales – have those available to show the valuer.

    In terms of best bang for your buck – usually painting/flooring is the cheapest value add.

    Cheers

    Jamie

  • You’ve got a couple of options.

    As above – you could engage an REA and get their opinion.

    Otherwise – you could get a valuation done now and another done after the work is complete.

    Cheers

  • Jamie Moore replied to the topic Help getting onto the property ladder in the forum Help Needed! 6 years, 6 months ago

    Hiya

    You need to a) save a deposit and b) show evidence to a lender that you can service the loan you’re applying for.

    Cheers

  • Jamie Moore replied to the topic Live in a great investment that was our first home. in the forum Help Needed! 6 years, 6 months ago

    Hi Stuart

    Which suburb is the property in? I have one in Downer that’s near a future light rail stop. The recent growth in the area has been quite good!

    Whether another purchase is doable depends on your borrowing capacity. On the surface – it looks like you have enough equity to support a second purchase so it will just come down to your…[Read more]

  • Jamie Moore replied to the topic How do you rate your experience with Property Managers in the forum Help Needed! 6 years, 6 months ago

    I’d only ever use a property manager for looking after my IPs – I don’t have the time/patience/expertise to deal with them.

    Having said that – finding a good property manager isn’t always easy :-( I’ve had some shockers, some great ones and everything in between.

    Cheers

    Jamie

  • Hi Chris

    Realistically – you’ll need to bolster that income. Whilst technically it’s probably possible to purchase something (providing you live rent free, have no debts, minimum living expenses and a deposit) – that property will prob be in an undesirable area with little prospects for growth.

    I’d focus on the income side of things before…[Read more]

  • Jamie Moore replied to the topic Financing PPOR with intention of converting to IP in the forum Finance 6 years, 6 months ago

    Chance are that REA is affiliated with the company they recommended.

    Personally – I like to minimise conflicts of interest so I’d appoint my own MB rather than go with the one the REA is recommending.

    Cheers
