How does an investment home loan work

An investment home loan works similarly to other home loans. When you buy a property, you put down a deposit for the property you wish to purchase, and the bank then lends you the rest of the money needed. Over time, you eventually pay back the loan plus the interest charged in regular monthly instalments throughout the term of the loan.

Investment properties differ in their approvals and condition features. 

Investment home loans, unlike traditional residential home loans, require a lower LVR (Loan-to-valuation ratio). This means investors are able to raise their deposit amount before you can apply for an investment property loan. These types of loans also have higher interest rates.

Potential Benefits

Some benefits of owning an investment property can include: 

  • Provides you with a valuable (long-term) income stream which typically increases over time
  • Growth property value over time
  • Costs of buying and maintaining a property can be claimed as tax reductions to reduce your taxable rental income generated by the property

FAQs about Investment Home Loan

What you need to consider when buying a property?

Applying for the First Home Owner Grant should be done at the same time as applying for your home loan. Our affiliated brokers will help with the application. You can also request an application from the office of state revenue directly.

How much will I need for a deposit?

Most lenders will usually require you to have a minimum 5% deposit of the purchase price plus a little extra to cover other costs such as stamp duty, legal fees and lender's fees. Now lenders have changed the required minimum deposit depending on other factors such as if it's an investment purchase and where the property is located. With constant changes with bank requirements, it is important to speak to a broker to work out what you really need.

What costs and fees are involved with buying a property for investment purposes?

There are fees associated with purchasing a property that you will need to make room in your budget for.

What is a Contract For Sale?

The contract of sale is a legally binding document that you sign by you and the vendor (seller). This contract sets out the terms and conditions of the sale, as agreed to by you and the vendor. While the contract of sale becomes a legally binding document the moment you sign it, there may be a cooling-off period during which you can cancel the sale if you bought the property by private sale. This is generally negotiated before you sign the contract of sale. The cooling-off period does not apply to auctions.

What is a loan comparison rate?

Applying for the First Home Owner Grant should be done at the same time as applying for your home loan. Our affiliated brokers will help with the application. You can also request an application from the office of state revenue directly.
