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 or rental property. 

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.
