Buying a Rental

Buying a second home can be exciting and daunting all at the same time.

There are some really important decisions to make when looking at purchasing your second home.

Should you use a different lender to offer a level of asset protection, or should you use the same lender because you would like to maximise your tax position?*

Buying your second home can arise from many different circumstances.

These may include:

  • A rapidly growing family
  • A want to buy a nicer home
  • Starting a rental property portfolio
  • To become closer to family or friends
  • Facilitating a move to a different city
  • To purchase a property for a friend or family member
  • Downsizing after family have flown the coup or for retirement
  • To down size after family have flown the coup or for retirement


Your reason for purchasing a second home could be one or more of the above reasons, it could also be for a reason that is not mentioned above. There are many factors to look into when buying your second home.


Purchasing a second home can raise many questions, such as:

  • Do you want to simply upgrade or turn your existing home into a rental property?
  • Do I have enough equity in my existing home to purchase a second home?
  • Will I have to add part or all of my savings to purchase a second home?
  • Can you afford the new mortgage repayments?
  • Do I want to stay with the same lender?


As you can see from the above points there are a lot of different things to consider when purchasing a second home, we would love to help you go through the process and help you with all aspects of purchasing a second property.

* We strongly recommend you seek advice from a suitably qualified tax accountant before proceeding with any purchase that may change your tax liabilities.
