    Buying new away from the city (40kms)

    not strict 40 kms, that was just a rough guide..In better words, looking at the end of Metropolitan rail line in Melbourne which is roughly 40-50 kms from city centre..hope it makes sense..South east because east is too expensive..West I don't prefer and I have little knowledge of outer north...

    Broadmeadows

    thanks guys..I also think I should just hang in there for few years..just that I can't buy more properties..My PPOR is performing well and I borrowed the deposit for IP on equity..Now don't want to borrow more on PPOR...do people borrow for deposit for more than one IP if their PPOR is doing well?

    Glenroy, Jacana, Broadmeadows melbourne

    I bought in Broadmeadows and quite happy with tenant/rent etc. Mine is close to station and shopping complex. No dramas so far. Only thing is that I was novice and paid bit too much. So make sure you negotiate. I will be in for a long term so hopefully it will get better with time.

    Interest only on PPOR

    Hi all, just a quick question.. Does the bank allow interest only payments on PPOR loan? Do people usually do this and leave the principal amount of repayment into offset? thanks

    Calculating Equity

    Ohh I see..so when I refinance, they will look at both PPOR and IP? As my PPOR is performing well, I thought of borrowing more on PPOR valuation..

    Calculating Equity

    Thank you all for your swift replies. I have some more questions. Yes 45k on IP is secured against PPOR!! Is this bad? It was first time had no idea how to set everything up. If I have 45k secured against PPOR, when I sell IP, do I have to pay off this 45k as well or I can choose not to...

    Calculating Equity

    Thanks Dave. If I have another 30k in offset then PPOR owing amount will be 320k instead of 350k, am I right? And 320k will be used in calculation of equity?

    Calculating Equity

    Hi Guys, Quick question. PPOR - 350k owing IP1 - two loans 1. 45k (equity loan from PPOR?) 2. 315k Now if I want to borrow more and calculate equity on PPOR, how does this work? If valuation comes say 480k - The equity is 480 - (350+45) = 85k Is this correct?
