This is a term
used to describe the difference of what is owed on the property and what it
is worth and using the dollar value to secure financial assistance to enable
the purchase of another property or shares.
For example if you have a mortgage loan of $200,000 and your home value is
$290,000 then you have $90,000 in “equity” which is then used
to assist with the purchase of shares or property.

Negative Gearing is using
expenses related to earning your rental income from your investment property
and claiming the excess expenses after rent against your other income.
Expenses include interest rate payments, building depreciation, management
fees and depreciation of fixtures etc. For most investors the expenses of
maintaining an investment property on 100% borrowings will be greater than
the income generated and is then off set against your salary income.

rates when the discount period is over, and often involve extra charges if
you try and change the loan later on.
Fixed or Variable
With a fixed
rate, your repayments will remain the same for the period that the loan is
fixed for, regardless of whether the Reserve Bank reduces or increases the
interest rates. This is beneficial for budgeting as the repayments stay the
same. However, often you are unable to make additional payments to help reduce
your loan sooner.
Variable rates are subject to the increases or decreases of interest rates
implemented by the Reserve bank. This particular rate allows you to make additional
payments to help the repayment of your loan sooner.
Should I go for
the discount variable rate for the first year?
Taking a discount
variable rate for the first year does not work out the best in the long term.
Often they mean higher interest rates when the discount period is over, and
often involves extra charges, if you try to change the loan later on. What
saves you money now will probably cost you money later.

It is highly
recommended that you use a property manager. They will find and screen the
tenant for you, advise you of your rights, track associated expenses of the
property and, of course, collect the rental for you. Always begin the process
of sourcing a good agent early, and allow a period of up to 8 weeks before
you may receive any rental income. However, remember it cannot be claimed
until the end of the financial year. This means you will have to meet the
expenses in the meantime.

of your property, allow up to 3 months before this variation comes into effect.
Please note that all other incidental claims are made at the end of the year.
size deposit do I require?
The larger the
deposits the better off you are, but the recommendation is at least 20% of
the value of the loan you require. Especially if you are trying to borrow
more than 80% of the value of a property as the lenders generally take out
mortgage insurance which is an additional expense. Deposit for investment
properties can come from cash or borrowing on the equity in another property
