    Interest only with an offset against PPOR

    The new changes actually make interest only a negative for the majority of lenders - as the serviceability is instead calculated on the remaining P&I period, ie, a 25 year loan instead of 30. There are some non regulated lenders which will still accept actual repayments for their calculations...

    ANZ loan redraw question

    You shouldnt have too many problems with that chunho, the equity release just needs to be put as for future property investment use - ANZ's policy is pretty flexible with this. Once released you can do as you please, placing it in redraw/offset etc.

    Peoples thoughts on Adelaide?

    Not a fan of the train line at the rear of the yard - and neither would lenders/mortgage insurers causing long term problems when you go to refinance/draw equity/sell.

    Peoples thoughts on Adelaide?

    Lenders take the lower of the valuation or the purchase price so you can't pull that off unfortunately - it does mean that after a few months you can draw out any equity gain however which may get you onto the path of buying your second property (a common strategy a lot of my younger clients are...

    May 12 - sounds like someone might have been telling fibs.

    Lending market changes in 2015 ? looking ahead, what?s next?

    Based on the current regime (and the previous), aiming for a 10% deposit + costs (90% LVR) provides you with a much more cost effective finance structure, and allows you to grow a lot quicker than 95% LVR purchases. Whether or not there may be LVR caps imposed in the future below this level is...

    Really dependent on lender - heck theres some which will allow 15 years off the bat if you can service adequately.

    Finance on smaller block of units

    There's a very small handful of lenders who will even touch HDT's anymore - consider the risk moving forward should this restrict even further. Discretionary/Unit trusts on the other hand aren't a problem with most of the lenders.

    Just bought something in SA...now what?

    Hold the contract until such a time as he can complete - 0 holding costs investment. ;)

    Finance on smaller block of units

    Can get 90% LVR resi rates with the right lenders. This is to the max of 4 units on 1 title. Have a chat with an investment savvy broker who can guide you with the right lenders, instead of being in the dark. :)

    Elizabeth Downs -Hot lead for low cost Mortgagee Sale

    I own some properties on the streets around that property - they've done quite nicely in both rent and CG. Theres a fair few redevelopments happening in the surrounding area which is only helping things along. Overall looks like a decent purchase if you're getting a 7.5% yield.

    21 day settlement possible?

    No fat in there for delays - 30 days is open to lender muck ups creating very tight situations. Don't forget not all people require a loan to purchase, they can have a large LOC available or cash. Alternatively if its the right State they might be happy just to go overtime and wear the...
